"By participating in this virtual meeting, I gained insight into the nuances of management of patients in my day-to-day practice, in particular regarding gastrointestinal malignancies. Highlights of the latest trials and evidence-based management protocols were presented. I was particularly excited to access the latest advances in research and practical case management of a wide variety of oncological diagnoses, despite the virtual environment networking limitations. I appreciated the interactivity of the sessions: after each clinical case presentation there was a discussion lead by experts on the field. The fact that the presentations reported real world cases is very valuable."

"This meeting was a great opportunity to learn about the most recent updates and trending developments in oncology care on a global scale. An important learning point was the discussion about oncology interventions with the highest benefit to patients. The case presentations and related discussions were the moments I appreciated the most about this meeting. These were ‘eye-opening’ as they highlighted challenges in other African countries. It is important to include regional cases and data so that we can develop best practice guidelines which are in line with the regional settings and resources."
