The MIBC organisers have opened several workshops to external registrations (i.e. for medical professionals not registering for the congress).
These workshops are:
Workshop 1: From concept to publication: Clinical trials in breast cancer
Workshop 3: The challenging patient
Workshop 4: Managing breast cancer in resource poor locations
Please find below the registration link which will enable you to register to these three workshops without having to register to the congress.
Join the ASBD, BreastSurgANZ and CoBrCa teams in Melbourne for the breast cancer educational event of the year in October! As is the tradition of ASBD conferences, optional workshops will be held on the first day (Thursday 11th October) of the Melbourne International Breast Congress.
1. Clinical trial conduct in breast cancerThis workshop will provide an overview of the components of the conduct of interventional or observational clinical trials in breast cancer.
2. Pathology - shades of grey: When the answer is non-definitiveThis workshop will focus on the “grey areas” of pathology and will include the spectrum of lesions from Atypia to DCIS and Lobular Neoplasia, Spindle Cell Lesions, ER, PR and HER2 testing controversies, and the relevance of grade in the prognosis of cancer.
3.The challenging patientThis fascinating workshop will explore “The challenging patient” and how to manage them: those who refuse conventional treatment, present late with “denial”, want “over treatment”, go “doctor shopping” or repeatedly miss appointments and then present in crisis.
4. Managing breast cancer in resource poor locationsThis workshop will highlight some challenges faced by clinicians managing breast cancer in resource poor locations both within Australia and in our region.
5. Radiation oncologyThis workshop promises to be an excellent opportunity with world-renowned international radiation oncologists in breast radiotherapy teaming up with local radiation oncologists and drilling down into three controversial topics in breast cancer management.
6. The tortuous road to diagnosisA look at some of the difficult and controversial aspects of breast cancer diagnosis including appropriate breast imaging, uncertainties in pathology, guidelines for investigating a new breast lump, and deciding when surgery or observation is best for the patient.
ALL WORKSHOPS HAVE LIMITED SEATING CAPACITY. REGISTER SOON!
