CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists and other allied cancer professionals involved in the treatment of cancer.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Effectively apply the results of practice-changing clinical research to the care of patients with breast, genitourinary, lung and select hematologic cancers.
    • Appraise the clinical relevance of recent pivotal cancer research results published in peer-reviewed journals or presented at major oncology conferences.
    • Recall ongoing trials in breast, genitourinary, lung and select hematologic cancers, and refer appropriate patients for study participation.
    • Incorporate clinical characteristics, logistical factors, tumor biomarkers and single and multigene signatures in the individualization of care for patients with cancer.
    • Educate patients with diverse hematologic cancers and solid tumors about the benefits and risks of new therapeutic agents and strategies.
    • Refine or validate existing cancer treatment algorithms on the basis of new data sets and the perspectives of tumor-specific clinical investigators.
    • Evaluate the mechanisms of action, tolerability and efficacy of promising investigational agents, and consider the implications for clinical practice.
