4th ESO-SIOPE Masterclass in Paediatric Oncology
24 - 29 November 2012, Castel Gandolfo (Rome), Italy
Aims and objectives
This clinically-oriented educational programme has been designed for young paediatric oncologists who wish to improve their skills in clinical management of common childhood tumours. It aims to offer a unique learning experience, providing practice-oriented training and the teaching sessions will focus on the application of the most recent research findings to clinical practice.
The Masterclass offers main sessions each day focusing on state-of-the-art treatment of more common diagnoses (CNS tumours, soft tissue and bone sarcoma, neuroblastoma and Wilms’ tumour) which are supplemented by sessions dealing with less frequently occurring tumours (for example, retinoblastoma, hepatoblastoma). Special lectures address more general topics such as radiotherapy, clinical trials and new drug development. Case presentations prepared by all the participants are discussed between the participants and the experts.
• Central nervous system tumours
• Soft-tissue sarcoma
