Genomic Testing in Oncology: Insights from the Tumor to the Germline ~ Multidisciplinary Approaches to Cancer Symposium Highlights- Enduring
This CME activity is based on the slides and lectures presented by the faculty at the “Multidisciplinary Approaches to Cancer Symposium,” on October 10–13, 2019 at the Waldorf Astoria, Las Vegas, Nevada.
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 1,762,450 new cancer cases and 606,880 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the United States in 2019. 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 cancer.
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.
- Describe the role of germline testing in the treatment of patients diagnosed with cancer.
- Outline the various types of cultural diversities (gender, age, race, religion, culture, etc.) that relate to demographics, diagnosis and treatment.
