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

Overview:

Unmet clinical needs remain in the management of genitourinary (GU) cancers, particularly for your patients with advanced forms of these diseases. In addition, busy clinicians like you are managing a heterogeneous patient population of GU cancers, making it a challenge to maintain the quality of care for these distinct tumors, due to the rapid pace at which the field of GU malignancies continues to evolve.

At this live CME satellite symposium, presented as an ancillary event to the 2018 ASCO Annual Meeting, you will hear a renowned panel of GU cancer experts discuss and highlight the emerging data for patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC), advanced bladder cancer, prostate cancer, and including less-common but important malignancies such as testicular cancer and penile cancer. Through interactive case discussions, data presentations, question-and-answer sessions, and the always popular Medical Crossfire®, you will have direct access to expert guidance on the interpretation of core concepts in an effort to forecast future application of evolving strategies for clinical practice.

This program will provide you with the opportunity to increase your confidence and competence in selecting and sequencing optimal treatment for GU cancers, particularly newer treatment options. For busy clinicians who attend major oncology conferences, such as the ASCO Annual Meeting, this is an excellent opportunity to interpret the data and to learn how to safely apply these novel approaches within the context of real-world, practical case scenarios.

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
