2023 Multidisciplinary Approaches to Cancer Symposium
Multidisciplinary Approaches to Cancer Symposium Overview
Each year, the American Cancer Society estimates the number of new cancer cases and deaths that will occur in the United States. Over 1.9 million new cancer cases are projected to be diagnosed and 609,820 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the United States in 2023.
Because they are so diverse in their individual biology, and clinical course management, many of these cancers are increasingly difficult to treat, 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 various cancers such as, breast, lung, colorectal, liver, thyroid, pancreatic and gynecologic malignancies as well as neuroendocrine tumors, myeloma, leukemia, lymphoma, glioma, sarcoma, and will further examine parallel healthcare issues in these patient populations.
Through leading-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, supportive/palliative care specialists and all other allied health care professionals interested in the subject matter.
- Describe new advancements and innovations in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers, such as pancreatic, biliary, liver and neuroendocrine tumors.
- Utilize therapeutic options when treating patients diagnosed with hematologic malignancies.
- Identify optimal techniques in the treatment of breast cancer and gynecologic malignancies.
- Implement treatment strategies for the management of cancer-related complications, such as chronic pain, immunotoxicities and fertility.
- Examine treatment strategies for the treatment of glioma, sarcoma, thyroid and lung cancer.
- Integrate CAR T cell therapy and precision medicine in patients with cancer.
- Discuss societal impacts on cancer patients.
- Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
