Renal Cancer Preceptorship (RECAP) Symposium, was beautifully organized by the RECAP committee members from Oncology and Urology Unit of Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya with the support of Novatris, Malaysian Oncological Society (MOS) and Malaysian Urological Association (MUA).
RECAP was one and half day programme lined up to cover all aspects of renal cancer, hence the speakers were from various subspecialties, interested in bridging the gaps for this disease. This programme had a shared motivation to educate young oncologist, urologist, and trainees with special interest in RCC. This interactive platform was designed:
- To increase interest in genitourinary cancers among young trainees.
- To educate and train on effective diagnosis, current treatment options including systemic or surgical, correct and effective dosing, dosing modification and adverse event handling in use of VEGFR – TKIs in the treatment of RCCs.
- To appreciate the indications of other treatment options including local therapies and radiotherapy in RCC.
It was a well-received event.
