3rd European combined Neurooncology Course - virtual meeting
18th-19th June 2021
It is our pleasure to invite you to the 3rd European Combined Neurooncology Course. It is aimed at early career professionals caring for children and adolescents with CNS malignancies, including (but not limited to) paediatric (neuro-)oncologists, neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists and paediatric oncology nurses.
We would have been keen to welcome you all in Vienna for a long awaited scientific face to face meeting, have a social event at a Heurigen or some other enjoyable place in our lovely city. Nevertheless, due to the ongoing COVID situation, we have decided to organise the training course as a purely virtual meeting to ensure its realisation independent of external influences. Furthermore, the pure virtual format (as well as the willingness of the speakers to give their lectures without remuneration and the support by industrial sponsors) will allow conducting the course without registration fees.
The training course will address the management of recurrent tumours and spinal tumours as well as the importance of supportive and palliative care. As our interdisciplinary team could establish an area of expertise regarding relapses of paediatric CNS malignancies we will consecrate a whole session to this topic, including - as a highlight - an interactive virtual precision medicine tumour board.
The interdisciplinary paediatric neuro-oncology team of the Medical University of Vienna hopes to welcome you to the upcoming virtual meeting.
