Crowne Plaza Hotel, Times Square

Overview

The 16th Annual International Congress on the Future of Breast Cancer® serves as an update on advances in the breast cancer field, with a focus on the clinical implications of breast cancer genetic and phenotypic subtyping. Novel agents, strategies, and improved regimens are changing the future of breast cancer therapy, and these advances and their clinical impact are highlighted throughout the program. Current controversies in the field are also addressed and debated, and new data presented, along with information about how to optimally individualize breast cancer therapy. This conference provides a unique opportunity for medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists and other healthcare professionals to learn from and interact with international leaders in breast cancer in order to increase knowledge, apply new data to practice, and, ultimately, improve patient outcomes.

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists involved in the treatment of patients with breast cancer. Fellows, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of breast cancer may also participate.

Learning Objectives

  • Determine testing strategies that can be utilized to facilitate the diagnosis, ability to stratify risk, and identification of predictive markers in the care of patients with breast cancer
  • Apply personalized treatment planning to manage patients with breast cancer based on information obtained from testing strategies
  • Delineate approaches that apply local therapies, such as surgical and radiation therapies, to manage patients with breast cancer
  • Describe key evidence concerning the use of evolving strategies for the care of breast cancer
