13th Annual Fall Oncology Conference: Clinical Challenges in Cancer Medicine (More Info)
Description: Held in Conjunction With the 10th Annual Medical Oncology Fellows Forum Important advances in the field of oncology over the last several years have led to improvements in outcome for several malignancies and newer options for refractory disease. This has resulted in a need to improve performance in clinical practice through the understanding of how to optimally individualize care based on benefits and risks in specific situations and defined patient populations. The 13th Annual Fall Oncology Conference: Clinical Challenges in Cancer Medicine has been designed to address clinical challenges and practical issues faced each day by community oncologists, oncology nurses, oncology physician’s assistants and other oncology professionals. The conference is intended to inform oncology professionals and fellows in training of the recent data on agents approved for and being evaluated in the most common tumor types, including breast, lung, genitourinary, gastrointestinal, gynecological and hematologic malignancies, and sarcoma. In addition, this activity focuses on providing a thorough understanding of the toxicity profiles of controversial and evolving regimens with hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, and novel targeted agents so as to aid oncology professionals in making effective decisions regarding treatment, management of patients and trial enrollment.
