ISSTD XX World Congress on Gestational Trophoblastic Diseases
ISSTD is a worldwide society for medical doctors, nurses, clinical chemists, pathologists, geneticists and others involved in the care for women with gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD). The society aims to improve knowledge on this rare condition and thus to improve care for patients with GTD by providing access to a worldwide network of experts, sharing publications and hosting conferences and teaching sessions.event info
This Congress will commence with an entire day devoted to learners and junior staff; the Sunday Education Day program staffed by world experts speaking on their own areas of expertise. The 3-day plenary meeting (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) that follows will be augmented by a field trip to the Niagara Falls region on Tuesday afternoon and evening, culminating in a cocktail reception and gala dinner in a Niagara vineyard. From among several themes, the plenary meeting will highlight Nursing’s evolving role within our Society and their major contribution to the care of trophoblastic patients. Professor Ernest Kohorn has kindly offered to review the previous 19 Congresses and speak about the formalization of the Society at the Tbilisi meeting in 2000. And finally, a pre-existing U. of T. mentorship program with Kenya oncologists and this Societies outreach to nurture and support a GTN program there will be presented.
