16th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer
The 16th World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer took place in Barcelona from 25 to 28 June 2014. The congress was attended by general practitioners, gastroenterologists, hepatologists, internist oncologists, surgeons and different researchers, who wish to upgrade their knowledge needed for treating patients with gastrointestinal cancer. The congress hosted presentations about the importance of screening, diagnostics and recent findings regarding clinical management of patients with common and less common types of gastrointestinal cancer. The emphasis was on individual patient management and the importance of a multidisciplinary approach, as well as most recent molecular mechanisms known to date. Over 70 world-renowned lecturers, all experts in their fields, presented the latest findings and recommendations or led small targeted groups of physicians who discussed issues of their interest. At the congress, the participants were also given a chance to present our research results, with the abstracts being published in the Annals of Oncology. Three specialists from Slovenia attended the congress, namely a gastroenterologist, an internist oncologist, and a radiation therapist, each with his or her own contributions.
