Enabling Tomorrow's Treatments Today: What Would It Take? - Enduring
All cancers, but specifically breast cancer has evolved from one disease to many due to molecular subtyping and the various outcomes. Being able to define more precisely the disease can enable us to aggressively treat and possibly reduce toxicity with precision medicine.
Clinician scientists must be able to identify current and leading-edge treatment options in order to better manage and treat cancer. Changing paradigms and developing new methods to respond to complex disease and provide patients with less toxicity and better quality of life will become key in being effective care providers.
The activity content is oriented to address the educational needs of physicians, nurses and all healthcare professionals interested in the subject matter.
- Identify current and leading-edge treatment options in cancer.
- Discuss clinical conundrums and possible solutions.
- Outline the safety and efficacy of recent clinical advances in the management of patients.
- Examine state-of-the-art information and skills necessary for treating patients.
