2017 Eye Cancer Working Day Announcement and Schedule

International Society in Ocular Oncology and The Eye Cancer Foundation will sponsor the Second Eye Cancer Working Day on the first day of the ISOO meeting, Friday, March 24, at the International Convention Centre in Sydney, Australia, at the Cookle Bay Room 1.

The Working Day provides an opportunity for eye cancer specialists from around the world to work together, face-to-face. Our goal is to help the subspecialty working daymove forward into the mainstream of oncological care.  This will require the creation of evidence-based medicine, educational programs, outreach to underserved areas, and multicenter quality assurance.

The 2017 Working Day will feature five separate committees focused on these ongoing initiatives. These include the topics of international medical evidence, retinoblastoma fellowships, quality assurance, surgical standards, and consensus guidelines.

  • MIR: Multicenter International Registries create statistically significant evidence. These registries will improve patient care and help us defend our methods of diagnosis and treatment.
  • FOR- RB: Retinoblastoma fellowship initiative to address the worldwide RB mortality.
  • DRO: Quality assurance through Doctors Reporting Outcomes. Eye cancer specialists cannot know how to improve, unless they know the outcomes of their work.
  • COAST: A Comprehensive, open-access, consensus-based surgery text.
  • RASER: A prospective ophthalmic Radiation Side Effects Registry

The FIRST Working Day was held at The Curie Institute in Paris immediately prior to the ISOO 2015, and it was a big success. Read the full summary of the First Working Day here. Watch videos from the event here.

We are excited to have the SECOND Working Day integrated with the biannual ISOO meeting. If you’re an eye cancer specialist attending the conference, be sure to mark your calendars and arrive by Thursday night!
