On behalf of the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO), we would like to extend a warm invitation to you to participate at the 32nd ESSO Congress. ESSO 32 will be celebrated in Spain’s third largest city, Valencia from the 19-21 September 2012.
Conference Theme: Individualising Cancer Surgery
Designed to promote the highest standards of surgical care in the management of patients with solid tumours, the general theme for the 2012 Congress is Individualising Cancer Surgery.
‘Individualising cancer surgery’ is the result of emerging knowledge in cancer biology, improved diagnostics and treatments. The cancer surgeon has a pivotal role in using these tools to provide every cancer patient with optimal care. ESSO 32 offers ample opportunity for cancer surgeons to be updated in the very latest treatments available for patients with solid tumours.
The highly valued scientific programme includes a first class panel of speakers presenting on the very latest trends and developments within the field. Back by popular demand are the Plenary Debate Sessions and ‘Meet the expert’ Breakfast Sessions and because we recognise the importance of a multi-professional approach to cancer patient care, the number of Joint Society Sessions, involving experts in different disciplines, has also been increased for 2012.
Two pre-congress events organised by the ESSO Education and Training Committee, which may also be of interest, are a two and a half day course in breast cancer surgery and two half day video-based workshops on breast and low rectal cancer. ESSO will also hold the EBSQ examinations in surgical oncology and in breast cancer surgery during the Congress.
