Activity Title:Multidisciplinary Approaches to Cancer Symposium
Venue:Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas
Date:November 10-12, 2022

Professional Practice Gap (overall program):

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 1.9 million new cancer cases are diagnosed and 609,360 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the United Sates in 2022.

Because they are so diverse in their individual biology, clinical course management, many of these cancers are increasingly difficult to treate, 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 myeloma, leukemia, lymphoma, AIDS, breast, head and neck, skin, renal, colorectal, liver, pancreas, lung cancer and diabetes as well as other topics related to the management of cancer patients. 

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.

Target Audience (overall program):

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.
