2024 Multidisciplinary Approaches to Cancer Symposium

Kahuku, HI US
November 7, 2024 to November 9, 2024

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 2 million new cancer cases are projected to be diagnosed, and 611,720 cancer deaths are expected to occur in the United States in 2024.

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 clinical and technical advances, promising clinical trial data, national guidelines, and key controversies in the management of various cancers, including breast, lung, colorectal, liver, brain, and gynecologic malignancies, as well as gastrointestinal malignancies. The program will also delve into parallel healthcare issues in these patient populations.

Through leading-edge lectures, case discussions, and interactive question-and-answer sessions, this intensive two-and-a-half-day program aims to enhance participants' ability to interpret and apply these best treatment options in their individual cancer practices.

Target Audience

Internists, family practitioners, gynecologists, general surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, hematologists, supportive/palliative care specialists and all other allied health care professionals interested in the subject matter.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe new advancements and innovations in the use of genomics. 
  • Utilize therapeutic options when treating patients diagnosed with hematologic malignancies.
  • Identify optimal surgical and medical techniques in the treatment of breast cancer and gynecologic malignancies.
  • Implement treatment strategies for the management of gastrointestinal and genitourinary malignancies.
  • Examine treatment strategies for the treatment of lung 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).
