Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference, 2019
Date(s) - 29/08/2019 - 31/08/2019
Congress Center Basel
The Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC) was initiated to provide a forum to discuss and debate current questions on the clinical management of men with advanced prostate cancer, with a special focus on these unclear situations. Two days of the conference are dedicated to high-level presentations, discussions, and debates to summarise and conceptualise the available literature and evidence.
The conference concludes with voting by an interdisciplinary expert panel on pre-defined consensus questions targeting areas of clinical relevance. Following the conference, a manuscript with these expert recommendations is published in a peer-reviewed journal.
Aims of APCCC:
- Provide an update on the current standard of advanced prostate cancer management with a focus on situations with no high-level evidence for a specific treatment option.
- Offer a highly educational program consisting of invited lectures, debates, and discussions led by a panel of international and interdisciplinary prostate cancer experts.
- Conference attendees will be able to participate in the two days of discussions as well as the consensus panel discussion. Attendees are encouraged to interact with panel members to facilitate and encourage international collaboration.
