• EAU Update on Bladder Cancer

Welcome to BCa19 Turin

An expert-led educational meeting uniquely focused on bladder cancer (BCa), the EAU Update on Bladder Cancer (BCa19) is a fully interactive update meeting, part of the EAU’s onco-urology meeting series.

Unique, Expert-led BCa Update

The 2nd edition of the EAU Update on Bladder Cancer (BCa19) will focus on bladder cancer management, led by a wide expert panel of onco-urologists and medical oncologists. This educational event will be held in Turin, Italy from 17 to 18 May 2019.

Diagnosis and therapeutic management strategies for urothelial tumours have rapidly evolved in recent years. Currently, there are ongoing clinical studies in every stage of the disease, looking into potential breakthrough immunotherapy studies. Genito-urinary cancer specialists and healthcare professionals are required to update their knowledge with the latest research outcomes, developments in guideline recommendations and the impact of best practices on clinical work.

To support the continuing medical education needs of cancer specialists, the European Association of Urology (EAU) and its Section on Oncological Urology (ESOU), has tasked bladder cancer experts from across Europe to pool their know-how and provide a critical assessment of innovative BCa therapies. This specialist event will not only take into account the most recent scientific outcomes but also examine guideline-compliant practices through in-depth case discussions.

Together with the European School of Urology’s (ESU) faculty, the two-day programme will cover practical approaches in bladder treatment options from systemic treatments, surgical interventions to complications management.

Testing assessment will be offered before and after the meeting to assess the participant’s knowledge, diagnostic and surgical skills. Interactive breakout sessions will examine dilemmas in diagnosis, while faculty-led case discussions will explore potential conflict issues in multidisciplinary team approaches, the impact of pathology results and follow-up strategies in recurrent, malignant disease.

BCa19 will help participants anticipate relevant and crucial developments that will inform clinical practice.  Assess and enhance your bladder cancer management skills during this compact and comprehensive update.

We hope to see you in Turin!
