The American Society of Clinical Oncology’s (ASCO) annual conference is one of the most globally influential events in the cancer academic calendar. It is often where the latest and most prescient research findings are unveiled and where new directions in cancer treatment, management and care are mapped out.
The Best of ASCO franchise allows for countries around the world to access the lectures that best suit their patient population and treatment reality, bringing them to a local audience.
This is the first time the Best of ASCO will be held in Qatar and we hope it will become an annual event and while of necessity in a virtual format on this occasion, we aspire it will be in person next year.
We have picked the topics we feel most relevant to cancer services here in Qatar. They cover both common and rare cancers and span the cancer patient trajectory from early to advanced cancer. They also include the full range of treatment modalities including surgery, systemic anti-cancer therapies and radiation oncology.
We welcome all of those with an interest in clinical oncology and cancer care more wildly to what we hope will be a stimulating and informative event.
