Barretos - UCLA Radiation Oncology Refresher Course 2019 and ASTRO Endorsed Meeting
Categoria do evento

History of The Barretos Cancer Hospital

In the 1960s, the only specialized center for cancer treatment in Brazil was located in the southwest of the country at the capital of the State of São Paulo in the city with the same name, São Paulo.  During this time, poor patients in countryside had difficulties to acessessing treatment in São Paulo due lack of resources. On November 1967, the Pio XII Foundation was established to serve patients with câncer. The foundation supported a small hospital (São Judas Tadeu) with only four physicians: Dr. Paulo Prata, Dr. Scylla Duarte Prata, Dr. Miguel Gonçalves and Dr. Domingos Boldrini. Around 70's , Paulo Prata received a generous donation to construct a new Hospital - the Barretos Cancer Hospital that meet the growing needs of cancer patients in the area. In 1989, Mr. Henrique Prata (son of Drs. Paulo and Scylla Prata) further expanded the hospital with the financial help of the community to serve cancer patients at no cost to them.

In 2014, a partnership  was formalized between the Departments of Radiation Oncology at the Barretos Cancer Hospital (BCH) and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Since 2014, BCH and UCLA have worked together to organize an annual meeting of Radiation Oncology highlights. In 2019, the 6th Annual Barretos International Radiation Oncology Meeting will be hosted in a new refresher course format. This meeting is designed to provide clinicians in practice and trainees with a comprehensive review and update of the clinical practice parameters across most sub-disciplines of radiation oncology. The course will review key evidence that forms the basis for current clinical practice guidelines and trends in new approaches that may be paradigm shifting areas. Additionally, the course will cover basic and applied radiobiological and physics principles that are relevant to and may explain results being obtained with current clinical practices.In addition,  a parallel course for medical physicists and physics residents will cover relevant physical principles.

Why is the course necessary?

The field of Radiation Oncology is rapidly evolving. Information overload can lead to indecisiveness, bad decisions, and stress. This practical two-day meeting provides a summary of the key evidence informing the most up-to-date clinical practices in an informal and interactive format. This course will focus on the most clinically-relevant topics within the field of radiation oncology.

Specific Objectives:

  • Interactive and didactic sessions that provided practicing clinicians and trainees with a comprehensive review of the core competencies, along with updates on the emerging trends across most sub-disciplines of radiation oncology.

  • Organized, thoughtful presenters covering evidence-based and practical current standards of care, in addition to ongoing clinical trials and future developments in the field.

  • Content that connected radiobiological and physics principles to relevant, clinical cases.

  • A highly-rated and concise meeting with networking opportunities

  • To understand the evidence-based and practical current standards of care in Radiation Oncology

  • To understand the ongoing clinical trials and future developments in Radiation Oncology

  • Present the rational of radiotherapy and immunotherapy in addition to its indications

  • Explain the role of radiotherapy in metastatic disease and decision between palliative and SBRT in oligometrostatics
