COURSE AIM/RATIONALE

This 5-day teaching course aims at focusing on the management of localised, locally advanced and metastatic prostate cancer. It emphasises the importance of a multidisciplinary approach and of teamwork, where full information exchange is vital to provide the best up-to-date scientific evidence on which the management of the disease will be based. This will be illustrated during state-ofthe-art lectures presented by experts in the field, covering important issues such as biology, imaging, pathology, therapy and future developments. Interactive case studies and journal clubs will be integrated on a daily basis and there will be ample time for open discussions amongst participants and experts. A special session on target delineation for radiotherapists will also be organised during the course.
