New collaborative consensus conferences for 2018: Focus on urothelial and ovarian cancers

Many successful consensus conferences have been held since the initiative was first introduced in 2007, and this year ESMO is collaborating with the European Association of Urology (EAU) and the European Society of Gynaecological Oncology (ESGO) to develop recommendations for the management of bladder cancer and ovarian cancer. Complementing the ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines, the established ESMO Consensus Conferences provide a valuable and free source of information on specific tumour types that results in recommendations on controversial issues. We talked to representatives from each organisation to find out more about the rationale for, and benefits of, this exciting collaborative work.
