Spain

Spain has two national representatives: Regina Gironés Sarrió and Raúl Córdoba Mascuñano.

Regina Gironés Sarrió

At beginning of my career, I coordinated lung pathologies (small and non-small cell), gynecological, oncogeriatrics and germ cell tumors in the Oncology Unit of the Lluís Alcanyís Hospital (Xàtiva, Valencia). In 2004, the Thoracic Tumors Committee was set up in coordination with the Thoracic Surgery Service of the Hospital de La Ribera (Alzira, Valencia). I visited that hospital until October 2010, when the Committee for Thoracic Tumors was launched at the Lluís Alcanyís Hospital, with meetings on a weekly basis. This action generated an increase in the quality of care for patients with lung cancer in the area, so that all cases are discussed jointly with Thoracic Surgeons, Radiotherapists, Radiologists and others involved in the pathology. As a result of this work, in addition to the assistance work, there have been several communications to congresses. I was the Secretary of this Committee. Since 2011, a Committee for Gynecological Tumors also operated on a weekly/biweekly basis in this hospital, depending on the number of cases.

Since January 2019, I incorporated to the Service of Medical Oncology of the Hospital Politècnic i Universitaria La Fe, as the responsible for the Unit of Genitourinary Tumors and Tumors of the Central Nervous System. I currently hold the position of Head of Section in Medical Oncology (presentation of the project and resolution on 10/21/2020, pending final inauguration). Since June 2020 I am the President of the Nervous System Tumors Committee of Hospital la Fe.
