ECCO2017 Symposium

Joining a conversation on the treatment evolution in advanced GI malignancies: yesterday, today, and tomorrow

Official Sponsored Satellite Symposium at ECCO 2017: European Cancer Congress. 29 January 18:45 – 20:15

During this symposium, a distinguished faculty of experts will engage the audience in an interactive discussion on how to optimize the day-to-day management of patients with gastrointestinal malignancies. Using patient cases from their clinical practices, the experts will exemplify how treatment has evolved over the years into the current best-treatment strategies. The final presentation will cover the latest clinical evidence of how these strategies may continue to evolve in the future.

Learning objectives based on identified educational needs

After attending this event, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe the evolution of metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) management and progress in treatment of advanced/metastatic gastric and gastro-oesophageal junction (GEJ) cancer to its current status in recent years
  • State the evidence supporting the design of current optimal treatment strategy for patients with advanced/metastatic GEJ cancer and mCRC
  • Develop a care plan that aims to achieve optimal treatment benefits and maximize individual patient outcomes in patients with advanced/metastatic GEJ cancer and mCRC in daily clinical practice
  • Formulate the remaining unmet needs in the treatment of patients with locally advanced or metastatic gastric/GEJ cancer and mCRC and understand how ongoing research could further improve outcomes in patients with advanced/metastatic GEJ cancer and mCRC
