The Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC) was initiated to provide a forum to discuss and debate current questions on the clinical management of men with advanced prostate cancer, with a special focus on these unclear situations. Two days of the conference are dedicated to high-level presentations, discussions, and debates led by the panel of international and interdisciplinary prostate cancer experts to summarize and conceptualize the available literature and evidence.

The conference provides an update on the current standard of advanced prostate cancer management with a focus on situations with no high-level evidence for a specific treatment option. It is entirely focused on “knowledge translation” by summarising and conceptualizing the current standards of advanced prostate cancer management and disseminating the results of the consensus discussions and votings. In addition, it culminates with an interdisciplinary expert consensus panel meeting that will discuss and vote on predefined questions relating to key areas where there is lack of evidence or conflict regarding the optimal treatment of men with advanced prostate cancer. Participants will be able to attend the two days of the discussions as well as the voting of the panelists as part of the conference, with the consensus summary being published after the meeting in a high impact medical journal.

Location: Congress Center Basel, Basel, Switzerland
