Palliative Care and Radiotherapy - A Course on Prognosis, Symptom Control, Re-Irradiation and Oligometastases is organized by European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) and will be held from Nov 26 - 28, 2019 at ESTRO Office, Brussels, Belgium. Target Group : This basic course is aimed primarily at trainee radiation and medical oncologists and experienced radiation and medical oncologists who want an update of their clinical knowledge. Clinical physicists, palliative care physicians and specialist nurses are welcome to participate. Description : In this course, a comprehensive overview of the applicability and effectiveness of palliative radiotherapy schedules from an evidence based perspective will be provided in a multidisciplinary framework. Focus will be on both clinical-ethical aspects and more technical-physics related issues. Learning outcomes : By the end of this course participants should • Have knowledge of the principles of palliation, pain management, and indications for and effectiveness of palliative radiotherapy schedules • Be able to discuss clinical cases on management, expected survival, clinical outcome in terms of quality of life and side effects using evidence based outcome tools. Course Content : • Principles of palliation, oligometastasis • Nature of cancer pain, physiology of pain • Principles of pharmacological management • Radiotherapy for pain: bone pain, soft tissue pain • Holistic pain therapy: integration of RT/CT/pharmacology and non-pharmacological approaches • Neurological complications: brain metastases - introduction and pharmacological management • Management of solitary brain metastases Management of multiple brain metastases • Malignant spinal metastasis, pathophysiology, diagnosis and initial management • Management of malignant spinal canal compression • Other neurological complications: spinal nerve root compression and neuropathic pain management • Care of the dying: different models of care • Lung - NSCLC: palliative management • Oligometastases and ablative therapy • Liver: role of radiotherapy in palliation • Palliative brachytherapy • Practical application of research data in palliation. Prerequisites : Before commencing this course you should have a basic understanding of radiotherapy and pharmacology and experience of caring for patients with advanced cancer.

Multidisciplinary Management of Brain Tumours is organized by European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO) and will be held from Dec 01 - 03, 2019 at ESTRO Office, Brussels, Belgium. Target Group : The course is primarily aimed at specialists and trainees in the field of clinical/radiation oncology interested in extending their knowledge of the multidisciplinary management of central nervous system tumours. Other specialists with interest in brain tumours who wish to have an update on brain tumour treatment approaches with a particular focus on modern radiotherapy will also be most welcome. Description : The course aims to review the present state-of-the-art of neuro-oncology from its biological understanding to the implementation of high-tech radiotherapy approaches, modern biologically driven therapy and care. It will not only cover the commonest of brain tumours, but will also review the latest developments in the less common tumours in adults and children. Learning outcomes : By the end of this course participants should be able to: • Understand the evolving concepts of brain tumour biology • Interpret more complex brain imaging for the purpose of therapy • Make judgements regarding multidisciplinary management of tumours including the role of systemic and targeted therapies in both common and rare brain tumours in adults and children • Understand the principles and practice of modern radiotherapy • Understand the design and challenges of brain tumour clinical trials. Course Content : Neuro-oncology is generally equated with the management of malignant gliomas, yet it is the speciality with perhaps the largest range of tumour types from curable to barely treatable. It has been at the forefront of technical developments in radiotherapy with early implementation of the latest imaging and high precision localised radiotherapy, including stereotactic radiotherapy and proton therapy. Neurosurgery has also developed in leaps and bounds so that previously inaccessible locations can now be safely reached. Local treatment relies on accurate imaging and this is the cornerstone of neuro-oncology practice. Alongside local treatment approaches, systemic treatment has become mainstay of management of many tumours in adults and children and targeted personalised therapy approaches are becoming a reality. The need for developing and testing new therapies in this challenging clinical setting requires the involvement of neuro-oncology specialists in clinical trials and the issues specific to brain tumour trial design are of importance to the future of the speciality. Anyone involved in neuro-oncology is aware of the challenges in treating the brain and the short and long term consequences for the patient and their carers, and that attention to care is an integral part of neuro-oncology. Prerequisites : Before commencing this course you should have some: • Experience of brain tumour management • Understanding of conventional brain radiotherapy issues. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
