SHOW- Symposium on Hepatic Oncology at Whistler
Thank you for your interest in SHOW 2015! This year’s conference is shaping up to be an exciting exploration of multidisciplinary cancer care. We are truly honored to have a world renowned faculty representing all facets of Hepaticopancreaticobiliary Oncology participate in this year’s proceeding, with an emphasis on day to day clinical management.
To keep the topics fresh and exciting, we have built on the previous format, with more topic-based panels and our signature ‘SHOW case based expert panels’, each designed to simulate case based discussions. The opening day will feature a ‘10,000 foot view’ introduction of liver-directed therapies from the perspectives of trial interpretation/design, technology platforms, and industry.
This year’s focus is Pancreatic Cancer, Hepatocellular Carcinoma, and Colorectal liver metastasis. We will highlight innovations, updates and controversies in the context of multidisciplinary care, with an emphasis on cross specialty knowledge translation.
As always, the main objective of SHOW is to present practical perspectives on the treatment of HPB related cancer cancers in the setting of community-based practice. To this end, we have established four co-Chairs, representing specialties involved in liver-directed cancer care to facilitate cross-specialty dialogue through case-based review, lectures and active audience participation. Our faculty consists of internationally recognized representatives from medical oncology, surgical oncology, hepatobiliary surgery, interventional radiology, radiology and radiation oncology who have embraced and incorporated multidisciplinary care into their daily practices.
We sincerely hope that you consider joining us at SHOW 2015. SHOW will be held at the Chateau Fairmont Whistler, offering premier facilities, special conference room rates, and one of the most scenic alpine destinations in the world.
AMA PRE Category 1, and RCPSC Category 1 credits will be available.
Registration is limited to 250 and early bird discounts are in effect until December 10, 2014
