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. A total of 1.9 million new cancer cases are diagnosed and 608,570 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the United States in 2021.
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 breast, lung, prostate, colorectal, liver, gastric and brain cancer, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, dermatologic and gynecologic malignancies, as well as addressing sexual health.
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.
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 advanced dermatologic malignancies.
- Assess the utilization of therapeutic options for those diagnosed with brain tumors and oligometastatic disease.
- Identify optimal techniques in the treatment of gynecologic and prostate cancers.
- Describe updates in the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
- Implement treatment strategies for the management of breast cancer.
- Outline the role of genomic profiling of patients diagnosed with cancer.
- Assess new data on therapeutic options available for patients diagnosed with gastric and esophageal cancer.
- Select optimal treatment sequencing options for lung cancer.
- Discuss end of life care and alternative supportive care methods for the management of pain.
- Advise on sexual health and survivorship related issues.
- Discuss various therapeutic techniques for the management of colorectal cancer liver metastases and management of patients with oligometastatic disease.
- Outline the various types of cultural diversities (gender, age, race, religion, culture, etc.) that relate to demographics, diagnosis and treatment.
