Eighth Annual Bladder Cancer Think Tank Set to Move Research Forward to Improve Treatment Landscape
Date:7/31/2013

Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) July 31, 2013

More than 120 leading oncologists, urologists, researchers, patients and advocates will convene August 8-10, 2013 in Snowmass Village, Colorado, for the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network’s (BCAN) eighth annual Think Tank, Collaborating to Move Research Forward.

The three-day event will seek to drive insightful discussion around pathways to targeted therapies, gender disparities in bladder cancer treatment and how to address sexual and reproductive side effects that patients may experience as a result of treatment.

Held annually since 2006, the Think Tank is the only bladder cancer-specific meeting to bring together physicians, researchers, patients and advocates dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a disease diagnosed in more than 72,000 people each year and anticipated to be the cause of nearly 15,000 deaths in 2013 alone.

This year’s Think Tank will feature keynote speaker Harvey V. Fineberg, MD, PhD, president of the Institute of Medicine (IOM), who will discuss cancer care for patients in a session titled, “Cancer Care for the Whole Patient”.

“BCAN’s Think Tank has the ability to mold and shape the bladder cancer treatment landscape and help lay the groundwork for patients to receive care that considers all of their needs,” said Dr. Fineberg. “I look forward to hearing what insights are shared during this meeting of leading professionals, experts and community members and how they might impact bladder cancer research.”

To continue the discussion of improving the bladder cancer landscape beyond the Think Tank, participants will assemble into working groups focused on a number of issues impacting patient treatment and outcomes. The working groups will convene throughout the year to discuss and collaborate around issues such as survivorship, standardization of care, improving bladder cancer clinical trials, translational science, n
