It is with pleasure that we announce the second virtual edition of the highly demanded SIOG Advanced Course in Geriatric Oncology from Canberra, Australia. We have an exciting programme, welcoming members both new and existing - to reflect upon, renew friendships and extend our networks, and jointly explore current and future research directions in Geriatric Oncology.
The Course is designed for professionals who want to stay at the peak of their expertise for the treatment and care of older cancer patients. It is delivered by international and local experts and is designed by the SIOG Faculty to provide specific skills in assessment, care pathways and therapeutic choices for older patients with cancer. The different themes and topics will cover the general principles of cancer treatment using case based discussions.
As with our other SIOG Advanced Courses, this edition will be a unique opportunity to forge greater collaboration and partnerships. We strive to enable as many professionals as possible to benefit from this exchange. We hope that you will support our second virtual foray into Australia, and we look forward to seeing you online in January 2022.
We hope that you will have a productive and fun‐filled time at this course.
