Australia Prostate Cancer Research would like to thank everyone that attended the recent Prostate Cancer World Congress incorporating the 16th Asia-Pacific Prostate Cancer Conference held in Cairns from 17 – 21 August 2015.
This educational event brought together world leaders presenting their expertise and current research, with all aspects of prostate cancer diagnosis and management discussed.
The event attracted delegates from 26 countries and this delegate list included a very broad multidisciplinary group (including: Clinical Urology, Translational Science, Nursing & Allied Health, General Practice, Trainees and other sectors through specific Masterclasses). The feedback we have received from delegates, our industry stakeholders, media and conveners has been extremely positive.
Highlights of the clinical program included an opening lecture by leading US Urologist Stacy Loeb MD, robotic surgery masterclasses, a livestreamed robotic prostatectomy performed by “prostate wizard” Dr Vip Patel in Florida, as well as numerous presentations by international and national faculty members on latest research, developments and trends.
The nursing and allied health stream proved immensely popular with sessions on rehabilitation, sexual rehabilitation and pelvic floor workshops completely booked out.
Review this website to see the stellar line up of speakers, abstract submissions and multidisciplinary program in further detail.
Prostate cancer continues to be a topic of great debate across the world, both in medical circles and of course for the many men diagnosed. The need for increased education, improved treatment options and sharing of knowledge has never been more important.
