11th international conference of the EFR, 24-27 April 2019, Vienna (Austria)

The EFR - European Federation for coloRectal cancer - is dedicated to ensuring high-quality conferences by advocating science, prevention and management of cancer of the colon and rectum. Honorable speakers and opinion leaders are invited because they have demonstrated expertise in their particular fields.

This conference will be held in cooperation with ECTA – Eurasian Colorectal Technologies Association. The cooperation with these organisations will enlarge the spectrum, not only of cancer related topics, but will also cover precancerous lesions and inflammatory bowel disease. The conference will also include „the 3rd International Sexual Day“ dealing with topics of quality of life, especially sexual function after multimodal treatment of colon diseases. Under the slogan “West meets East” the EFR seeks to create international friendships throughout the countries from Europe to Asia. We expect speakers and participants from all over the world. The lectures and the interactive discussions are defined to assure quality care for conditions related to the colorectal diseases. The conference is accompanied by symposia, which are mend to give the newest updates concerning trials and modern concepts of surgical techniques.

The 11th international conference of the EFR will focus on guidelines especially in the optimal sequence of radio-chemotherapy and surgery in rectal cancer. The take home messages are intended to be on direct use for healthcare providers in their special field, but will also give the best information for our patients.
