Asia-Pacific Prostate Cancer Conference (APCC) in 2016 will again present a world-class Faculty of both International and leading local presenters, across a full 3 day program. World opinion leaders are coming together to bring their depth of knowledge and experience to the Australian industry, discussing all facets of prostate cancer management, treatment and scientific advance in the discipline. International guest speakers include Professor Peter Carroll (University of San Francisco), Professor George Thalmann (Inselspital, The University Hospital of Bern, Switzerland), Associate Professor Steven Joniau (University Hospitals of Leuven, Belgium) and Professor Bertrand Tombal (Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium).
The 2016 program will include streams in Clinical Urology, Translational Science, Nursing and Allied Health and will ensure the most contemporary information and research-validated findings are presented. A session tailored specifically for General Practitioners has also been planned. A number of end-user oriented Masterclasses for MRI and Robotics, as well as Breakfast Sessions and Satellite Symposia in association with industry partners have been planned.
Prostate cancer continues to be a topic of great debate within the world community, 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 as important. We are proud to bring the 17th edition of this meeting to Melbourne. Your continued or first-time attendance and support of this premier educational event will ensure that we continue the ground breaking advances that are needed to support the many thousand men facing prostate cancer every year.
