The goal of this symposium is to understand how cholangiocarcinoma and other biliary pancreatic cancers can be best managed by clinicians in this area. During this international symposium, the experts from various regions of the world will share the findings of their research, clinical experience, and recommendations regarding these cancers. We expect this symposium will change the practice of the attendees who will acquire the state-of-the-art clinical information about the diseases, thus improving the overall survival of patients with the diseases.

  • Implement updates on surgical approach for resection, transplant, and palliative surgery into practice (Knowledge, Competence, Performance);
  • Incorporate the best available chemotherapy regimen and/or radiation treatment (Knowledge, Competence, Performance).
