A comprehensive overview of the most important concepts of screening, new diagnostic tools such as liquid biopsy, biomarkers, staging and classification, advantage of classic thoracoscopy vs robotic surgery, sleeve resections, the role of other local treatments, the discussion around indication for segmentectomy vs lobectomy, treatment of oligometastatic disease, the role of the surgeon in the MDT meeting, defining resectability, neo vs adjuvant treatment with chemotherapy and immunotherapy, the role of targeted therapy and discussion of complex situations such as multifocal disease, oligo-recurrence and oligo-progression. Patient safety profile and PROMS will be discussed.

Participants will have achieved a practical level of knowledge thanks to workshops on navigational bronchoscopy, evaluation of fitness, simulation of segmentectomy, rigid bronchoscopy, MDT for nodules and ground glass opacities and an MDT for locally advanced tumours.
