28th International Prostate Cancer Update

Beaver Creek, CO US
January 24, 2018 to January 27, 2018

In conjunction with the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), Carden Jennings Publishing Co.,Ltd. (CJP) proposes to develop a live conference on the topic of prostate cancer. This conference will encompass expert lectures, interactive discussions, a panel roundtable, debates, and case reports. It will be physician-led, multi-supported, and designed for urologists, medical oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of prostate cancer. This conference will be the 27th annual International Prostate Cancer Update (IPCU 27), and is being held at The Westin Riverfront at Beaver Creek, CO from January 24-27, 2017. This activity will be a Sunshine-exempt, CME-accredited educational program. As such, it will meet the following requirements: (1) the provider and program is accredited, (2) no direct payments are allowed between CME supporters and physician faculty, and (3) CME supporters have no role in directing, suggesting, or implementing how the proceeds of the grant are used by the CME provider.

Program Goal
The goal of this educational program is to equip urologists, medical oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of prostate cancer with the up-to-date clinical knowledge and tools they need to best treat their patients. The program will discuss the treatment of prostate cancer from diagnosis to treating advanced and metastatic disease. The conference aims to give physicians exposure to a comprehensive review of treating prostate cancer patients, and to give them a chance to discuss the issues with peers and experts.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the Medical College of Wisconsin and Carden Jennings Publishing. The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
