HCC Update 2019

Thursday, December 5th 2019 14:00 – 18:00
Hotel Alpha Palmiers, Rue du Petit-Chêne 34, 1003 Lausanne

As you know, hepatocellular carcinoma is a challenge. Too often patients are diagnosed at an advanced stage; often patients are not referred based on a nihilistic attitude which should belong to the past. Several therapeutic options are available and to select the best for each patient requires expertise.

For the benefit of our patients we plan to organize a HCC Update starting at 14:00 on the 5th December 2019 in Lausanne focusing on hepatocellular carcinoma and bringing together the different specialties.
This event will have CME recognition.
