Clinical oncology programme

Monday 5 October - Gynaecological cancer

Join us for an update on recent developments and hot topics in gynaecological cancer. We will focus on radiotherapy dilemmas for cervical cancer and debate challenging cases including management of nodal disease and re-irradiation. The day will also include a radiotherapy contouring workshop focusing on both external beam radiotherapy and brachytherapy cases for cervical cancer.

With novel treatments we face new challenges! Integrating immunotherapy and other targeted agents with radiotherapy will be discussed with a focus on practical strategies and case examples. The consequences of pelvic radiation can have a significant impact on a patient’s quality of life and we will discuss the modern management of commonly encountered late effects including GI toxicity, fertility and sexual function.

 Long course, short course, total neo-–adjuvant therapy-– how to select the most appropriate neo-–adjuvant approach? What to do with the complete clinical responder? Who and how to re-–irradiate? Join us as experts in the field guide us through these and other hot topics in the management of rectal and anal cancer. The day will also include a hands on radiotherapy planning workshop to address some of the challenges in delineation.

Tuesday 6 October 2020 - Minimising and managing toxicity of modern radiotherapy to the pelvis

The late effects of pelvic radiation can have a significant impact on a patient’s quality of life. The programme will focus on strategies to reduce pelvic toxicity and cover the modern management of commonly encountered late effects including gastrointestinal toxicity, fertility and sexual function. This day will also include the George Edelstyn plenary lecture.

Clinical oncology trainee workshop: Radiotherapy plan review and image guided radiotherapy (IGRT)

How to balance target volume coverage with dose to organs at risk? What to do when the plan doesn’t match on treatment? For the answers to these questions, join the radiotherapy plan review and IGRT sessions at RCR2020. We will cover an overview of photon plan evaluation and image guidance with a focus on head and neck, thoracic and pelvic cancers as well as brachytherapy and proton beam therapy.

Wednesday 7 October 2020 - Updates in lower GI cancer

Long course, short course, total neo-adjuvant therapy — how to select the most appropriate neo-adjuvant approach? What to do with the complete clinical responder? Who and how to re-irradiate? Join us as experts in the field guide us through these and other hot topics in the management of rectal and anal cancer. The day will also include a hands-on radiotherapy planning workshop to address some of the challenges in delineation.
