Description

Advancements in Cancer Management is an educational forum designed to foster dialogue between primary care providers (PCPs) and the oncology team and to provide strategies that contribute to integrative cancer care for patients. Panel discussions, case studies, and question-and-answer sessions will take place to enhance clinician knowledge and competence and provide real-world guidance and recommendations for treatment and management of complex patient situations. Topics such as screening high-risk patients, cancer pain management, immunotherapy treatment and adverse event management, monitoring for the long-term effects of treatment and/or disease, combining integrative therapies with cancer treatment, and drug-drug interactions will be covered for PCPs to expand their knowledge and transform their practice in cancer care in order to ensure and enable optimal patient outcomes.
