ASCO: Immunotherapeutic Strategies with the Potential to Transform Treatment for Genitourinary Cancers

ASCO: Immunotherapeutic Strategies with the Potential to Transform Treatment for Genitourinary Cancers


Friday, June 1, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Dinner and registration: 6:30 PM – 7:00 PM

Hilton Chicago
Williford Room (Third Level)
720 South Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL 60605

What You'll Learn:

  • Which patients should receive checkpoint inhibitors or may benefit from participation in a clinical trial
  • Strategies to mitigate Immune-related adverse events (irAEs)
  • Clinical impact of new data presented in Chicago

Overview:

Unmet clinical needs remain in the management of genitourinary (GU) cancers, particularly for your patients with advanced forms of these tumors. As the field of immunotherapies rapidly advances, you face challenges in ensuring the provision of cutting-edge care to manage these most difficult-to-treat forms of cancer.

At this live CME symposium you will hear from a renowned panel of GU cancer experts discuss and highlight emerging data for patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC), bladder cancer, prostate cancer, and less-common but important malignancies such as testicular and penile cancers. Through interactive case discussions, data presentations, question-and answer sessions, and the always popular Medical Crossfire®, you will learn how the latest evidence on immunotherapies can be contextualized given rapidly changing treatment paradigms to manage these tumors.

Target Audience:

This educational program is directed toward medical oncologists interested in the treatment of genitourinary cancers. Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment and management of patients with genitourinary cancers will be invited to participate.

Learning Objectives:

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

  1. Outline the use of patient- and disease-specific characteristics to inform clinical decision making in the management of patients with GU malignancies
  2. Discuss current strategies and practice-changing evidence for the management of patients with GU malignancies across multiple lines of care
  3. Explain how to proactively mitigate expected treatment-related toxicities associated with immunotherapeutic and targeted approaches to treating GU cancers
  4. Apply emerging clinical trial data for the management of GU malignancies in the context of changing treatment paradigms in the field
