CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of medical oncologists, hematologists and hematology-oncology fellows.

    OVERVIEW OF ACTIVITY

    Each year countless data sets related to the management of common cancers are released to the oncology community via presentation at cancer conferences and publication in peer-reviewed journals. This massive outpouring of information has enormous positive benefits for the cancer community, but the truth is it also creates a major challenge for practicing oncologists and hematologists. To bridge the gap between research and patient care, this web-based activity uses a mix of didactic presentations and moderated case-based discussion to apply evidence-based concepts in routine clinical care. The activity focuses on 7 different areas of oncology: breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, genitourinary cancers, non-Hodgkin and Hodgkin lymphomas, multiple myeloma, gastrointestinal cancers and ovarian cancer. These have been selected based on a number of factors, including the overwhelming need for and interest of practicing oncologists in additional educational resources in these areas. By providing access to the latest research developments across these cancers, this activity will assist medical oncologists, hematologists and hematology-oncology fellows in the formulation of up-to-date clinical management strategies.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Effectively apply the results of practice-changing clinical research to the care of patients with breast, lung, genitourinary, gastrointestinal, ovarian and hematologic cancers.
    • Compare and contrast the clinical relevance of recent pivotal cancer research results as published in peer-reviewed journals and/or presented at major oncology conferences.
    • Recall ongoing trials in breast, lung, genitourinary, gastrointestinal, ovarian and hematologic cancers, and counsel/refer appropriately selected patients for study participation.
    • Utilize an understanding of tumor biomarkers and single and multigene signatures to individualize the care of patients with cancer.
    • Educate patients with diverse hematologic cancers and solid tumor types about the benefits and risks of new therapeutic agents and strategies.
    • Employ case-based learning to refine or validate existing cancer-specific treatment algorithms.
