Multidisciplinary Approaches to Cancer Symposium
Each year, the American Cancer Society estimates the number of new cancer cases and deaths that will occur in the United States. A total of 1.8 million new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,520 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the United States in 2020. Because they are so diverse in their individual biology, clinical course management of many of these cancers is increasingly difficult, constantly evolving and fraught with controversy. In this environment, it has become much more difficult and complicated for those involved in the care of cancer patients to remain current in best practice for each of the many tumor types that constitute “CANCER”. This year, our faculty will profile and discuss the clinical and technical advances, promising clinical trials data, national guidelines and key controversies in the management of breast, lung, prostate, colorectal, liver, gastric and brain cancer, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, as well as dermatologic and gynecologic malignancies. Through cutting-edge lectures, case discussion and interactive question and answer sessions, this intensive two and half day program will provide participants with an enhanced ability to interpret and apply these best treatment options into their individual cancer practices.
Internists, family practitioners, gynecologists, general surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, hematologists, gastroenterologists, urologists, dermatologists, supportive/palliative care specialists and all other allied health care professionals interested in the subject matter.
