Prostate cancer, the most malignant tumour in men, annually causes 1,400 deaths in Switzerland and 360,000 fatalities worldwide. The global incidence of prostate cancer is rising. Every year, more than 1.2 million men are diagnosed.
The Advanced Prostate Cancer Society (APC) is a non-profit organisation that aims to improve the treatment and care of men with advanced prostate cancer. The society organises the Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC) and is the legal representative of APCCC based in Switzerland.
The Advanced Prostate Cancer Consensus Conference (APCCC) was initiated to provide a forum to discuss and debate current questions on the clinical management of men with advanced prostate cancer, with a special focus on these unclear situations. The conference is dedicated to high-level presentations, discussions, and debates to summarize and conceptualize the available literature and evidence. The conference concludes with voting by an interdisciplinary expert panel on pre-defined consensus questions targeting areas of clinical relevance. Following the conference, a manuscript with these expert recommendations is published in a peer-reviewed journal.
