Call for Abstracts: World Congress on Controversies in Breast Cancer
Australia

Call for Abstracts: World Congress on Controversies in Breast Cancer

October 22-25, 2015 Melbourne, Australia

Deadline for submission of abstracts: Monday, July 6, 2015

Congresses are numerous, but few address the key issues facing clinicians in their daily practice. New information is often presented, but rarely in a form that is ready for use and the gap between theory and practice is not always addressed. The CoBRA congress will be different. It will deal with controversial issues in aspects of breast cancer care, with presentations, debates and discussions. The congress will provide a forum for key opinion leaders to effectively debate unresolved clinical and therapeutic dilemmas.
