Scientific Programme

The EAU Update on Bladder Cancer (BCa18) is a compact and fully interactive meeting that will assess and enhance your bladder cancer management skills. Bladder cancer KOLs from across Europe will update you in 2 days with the latest research outcomes, developments in guideline recommendations and the impact of best practices on clinical work.

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.
