Endometrial cancer: a vision for 2020 and beyond

Endometrial cancer is the most common and rapidly rising type of gynaecological cancer in Australia yet there are relatively low rates of research into this disease across Victoria. This workshop will address this imbalance via insight from national and local experts and facilitated discussion with the audience.

The aim of this workshop will be to identify opportunities for local, national and international collaboration

  • bring the latest treatment evidence and gaps in knowledge to the table for discussion
  • share learnings from other successful gynae-oncology research projects and groups
  • collectively discuss and prioritise the key issues we should focus on moving forward
