The 9th Engadin Prostate Cancer Winter Symposium

Dear colleagues and friends of this meeting,

It is a great pleasure for me to invite you for the 9th time to our Engadin Prostate Cancer Winter Symposium.

One of the most disputed topics at the moment is screening for prostate cancer. It is unquestionable that screening saves lives but an individual approach for every single patient is clearly needed. How we define “smarter screening”? In this setting, risk calculators have an increasing importance in preventing overdiagnosis and overtreatment.

We are also confronted with a number of exciting developments in diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer, especially in imaging techniques. Still the important questions remain: How to inform about prostate cancer risk and how to treat the individual patient? Is active surveillance a justifiable option? How to deal with high risk PCa and with recurrent disease if primary treatment fails? What is the optimal treatment sequence in advanced prostate cancer?

We will discuss these topics in a pro and contra form to give recommendations for the everyday practice. We intend to have a high quality scientific meeting in a special relaxing atmosphere, facilitating open and profound discussions. We will be very glad to hear your contributions to the relevant topics.

On this occasion I would like to thank Dr. Maciej Kwiatkowski for collaboration in preparation to this symposium. I want also to acknowledge the support of the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Zuoz

With best regards
Prof. Franz Recker, Chefarzt
