Providing state-of-the-art cancer care through diagnostic, therapeutic, and supportive strategies is dependent on incorporating the latest clinical advancements and data into practice. In solid tumors and hematologic malignancies alike—and across all cancer types—novel approaches in testing, systemic therapy, targeted and immunotherapies, and combination strategies continue to drive improvements in patient outcomes.

Now in its 35th year, the Chemotherapy Foundation Symposium™ (CFS™) brings together more than 2000 healthcare professionals, including oncologists, hematologists, radiologists, immunologists, pharmacists, NPs, PAs, and patient advocates, and strives to deliver the latest answers to your clinical challenges. Our internationally renowned faculty will provide expert analysis on the most recent developments in cancer therapies, synthesizing scores of data to provide attendees with the critical distilled information they need. This preeminent 3-day conference provides an unparalleled opportunity to learn new methods of personalizing care for your patients with cancer. Together, we will Innovate Cancer Therapy for Tomorrow®. See you in New York!

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward oncologists, hematologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists interested in the treatment/management of patients with cancer. Radiotherapists, immunologists, fellows, physician assistants, researchers, case managers, and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of cancer are also invited to attend.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:

  1. Determine the most appropriate testing strategies to stratify risk and inform clinical decision-making in the management of cancer
  2. Describe important clinical trial results that inform treatment practices and are altering care paradigms for patients with hematologic malignancies and solid tumors
  3. Identify immunotherapeutic, chemotherapeutic, and targeted approaches demonstrated by recent evidence to optimize clinical outcomes
  4. Delineate methods multidisciplinary teams can proactively apply to prevent and mitigate the impact of treatment-related toxicities findings in the context of evolving treatment pathways to improve care for patients with cancer
  5. Assess practice-changing evidence and apply these findings in the context of evolving treatment paradigms to optimize the care of patients with cancer
