Overview

Over the past decade, our knowledge of cancer in animals has increased rapidly. More and more veterinarians and clients are becoming open-minded about treating canine and feline cancer patients. “Oncology I” (2018) will start with the diagnostic approach to the cancer patient, including biopsy taking, staging procedures, diagnostic imaging options as well as several practical cytology sessions. Further, there will be a detailed discussion of common (surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy) and novel (e.g. tyrosine kinase inhibitors, metronomic chemotherapy) treatment options. Management of side effects will be explained and safe handling of chemotherapeutic drugs will be practiced hands-on. A major emphasis of the course will be on interactive and case oriented work using a systematic approach to the cancer patient including recognizing symptoms, interpreting radiographic findings, choosing correct staging procedures and formulating a therapeutic plan. There will be a detailed discussion of neoplasms of the skin and adnexal structures as they are the most common tumours in clinical practice.
“Oncology I” will start from scratch and provide a very solid basis of oncological principles. It is ideal for veterinarians with little or no previous knowledge in veterinary oncology, but also suitable for people, who want to deepen their understanding.
“Oncology II” (2019) and “Oncology III” (2020) will build up on this seminar, introduce more advanced concepts and address all the remaining tumour systems in great detail. As in Oncology I, there will be a major focus on interactive case management.

In 2019 “Oncology II” builds up on course I introducing more advanced concepts in oncology and addressing a variety of tumours. Again, a major emphasis of the course will be on interactive and case oriented work using a systematic approach to the cancer patient including recognizing symptoms, interpreting radiographic findings, choosing correct staging procedures and formulating a therapeutic plan.
