Uniting, reflecting and empowering is the motto of the Algarve Oncology Meetings, organized by the HPA Saúde Group – Hospital Particular do Algarve – which will take place on the 15th of April in Faro, at Hotel 3HB.
For the organization, this is an event whose main objective is to unite the different professionals who make up the multidisciplinary teams involved in the management of cancer, in a multi-thematic reflection, which contributes to greater empowerment of these professionals in the fight against cancer. That is why the subtitle “uniting, reflecting and empowering” was chosen.
There will be five disease-specific tables – breast, prostate, colorectal, lung and skin cancer -, where the different therapeutic perspectives will be addressed, but also aspects related to early diagnosis, as a fundamental determinant of the course and success of the oncological disease.
The afternoon ends with a multidisciplinary panel that includes input from surgery, radio oncology and oncology, but also from general and family medicine, nursing and physiotherapy.
And if the “patient- and family-centered approach” has its paradigmatic example in oncological disease, the event ends with a speech by the editor of Onco Glam Magazine, whose motto is “cancer is not beautiful, but we can be” .
