Activity Overview

Community Practice Connections™: 1st Annual International Congress on Immunotherapies in Cancer™: Focus on Practice-Changing Application features case-based discussion of the application of immune checkpoint inhibitors in several tumor types. Interactive clinical vignettes are followed by short video interviews with leading oncology experts and short summaries of clinical data related to these clinical settings. The video interviews address decision points in the clinical vignettes, as well as questions commonly faced in the community oncology practice setting by physicians using immunotherapy.
