Venue: Flims, Switzerland
The ECCO-AACR-EORTC-ESMO Workshop on Methods in Clinical Cancer Research, or the ‘Flims Workshop’ in short, is an educational programme that introduces junior clinical oncologists in any oncology subspecialty to the principles of good clinical trial design.
Since 1999, this annual workshop has been held in the last full week of June, hosted by the small town of Flims in Switzerland. The organisers pursue the ultimate goal of developing a cadre of well-trained, experienced researchers whose expertise will foster better clinical trial designs and thereby hasten the introduction of improved regimens for cancer therapy and prevention into everyday medical practice and patient care.
Participants propose a trial protocol at the time of applying to the Workshop and complete the writing of the protocol throughout the course of the Workshop. The development of the protocol is not merely a practice run – participants are expected to make every effort to implement the protocol upon returning home.
