Prostate Cancer Summit
Prostate cancer clinicians attended the summit on Friday 27th May to discuss and identify unwarranted variations in practice and cancer outcomes that could be addressed through state-wide action.
Summit attendees reviewed data on treatment planning and delivery across Victorian public and private health services, and agreed on short-term priorities for collective action. This work will be supported by the local Integrated Cancer Services though engagement with their cancer multidisciplinary teams.
Discussion topics included :
- Incidence and survival
- Multidisciplinary approach to treatment planning
- Treatment options for all stages of prostate cancer
This clinician-led forum was the fourth in a series of tumour specific summit meetings in Victoria. A clinical working party co-chaired by A/Prof Jeremy Millar and Prof Damien Bolton oversaw the preparation of the data that informed the summit discussion.
