The clinical practice of oncology is a rapidly-evolving discipline. This program will provide physicians – especially oncologists, gynecologic oncologists, hematologists, radiation oncologists, and surgical oncologists – as well as cancer-interested dermatologists, gastroenterologists, nephrologists, pulmonologists, urologists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, oncology hospital pharmacists or pharmacists interested in this area, with a summary of the latest advances in discipline-related cancers. New therapeutic agents will be a topic of discussion. This program will focus on how these new advances will impact the practice of oncology today.
Following this program, participants should be able to:
- Examine the changes being adapted in the clinical management of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
- Discuss recent clinical studies evaluating the activity of checkpoint inhibitors in solid tumor malignancies, including breast, GU, GI, lung, sarcoma, gynecological cancers, H&N cancer and melanoma.
- Appraise potential of novel agents and drug combinations in the early clinical trials.
- Recognize important toxicities associated with immune checkpoint inhibitors and their management.
- Recognize the importance of clinical trials in the development of novel anti-cancer modalities and combinations, and the use of correlative studies in treatment development.
