12th SPAEN Annual Conference in Milan, Italy:
Global, diverse, informative and collaborative
From January 28 - 30, 2022 the 12th SPAEN Annual Conference will be held in Milan, Italy, once again in conjunction with the expert conference “ESMO Sarcoma & GIST Symposium 2022”. If the COVID situation will not allow a live meeting, we will hold the SPAEN Conference online.
We will bring experienced and long-term patient advocates together to mixe up with new representatives and even new member groups, representing organizations covering all subtypes of sarcomas or subtype-specific groups for e.g. desmoids, chordomas, leiomyosarcomas or bone cancer.
The two conference will be full of learning about medical topics ranging from the status of research in sarcomas, pathology in GIST, side-effect management and radiotherapy in desmoids, update on new approaches in sarcomas, GIST case studies and more. But also capacity building about standards of excellence for patient organizations, patient advocate-patient communication and more will be on the agenda. We will plan an interesting mixture of different session formats ranging from powerpoint presentations, to market place sessions to panel discussions to provide a wealth of information and inspiration.
Also always worth to be part of such a community is the talk before and after sessions about similar or completely different problems, projects, good or bad experiences and brainstorming new ideas – a great way to learn from each other.
SPAEN Annual Conference and EMSO Sarcoma and GIST Symposium: a great combination
Participants of the SPAEN Conference were also welcome to attend the ESMO Sarcoma and GIST Symposium (1-3 February 2022) for free. Further information will follow.
