CE Disclosures and Faculty Information



    Each year, thousands of clinicians and basic scientists sojourn to the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting to learn about recent clinical advances that yield alterations in state-of-the-art management for all tumor types. Attracting tens of thousands of attendees from every corner of the globe to both unveil and digest the latest research, ASCO is unmatched in attendance and clinical relevance. Results presented from ongoing trials lead to the emergence of new therapeutic agents and changes in the indications for existing treatments across all cancer medicine. Despite the importance of the conference, the demands of routine practice often limit the amount of time oncology clinicians can realistically dedicate to travel and learning. To bridge the gap between research and patient care, this CME activity will deliver a serial review of the key presentations from the ASCO Annual Meeting and expert perspectives on how these new evidence-based concepts can be applied to routine clinical care. This activity will assist medical oncologists and other cancer clinicians in the formulation of optimal clinical management strategies for patients with diverse forms of cancer.
