Altering the Course of Cancer in Primary Care: Early Detection for Better Long-Term Outcomes

Altering the Course of Cancer in Primary Care: Early Detection for Better Long-Term Outcomes

Thursday, October 15, 2020

Scientific Session: 6:00 - 8:00 PM EDT

Location: Chicago, IL


Family practice clinicians, not oncologists, are usually the first point of contact for a patient at risk for cancer or needing an evaluation for cancer. Typically, in the United States, cancer screenings begin in primary care offices. Early cancer detection leads to earlier treatment, which often leads to improved long-term outcomes. Primary care providers can help alter the course of cancer by screening for it in a wide population of at-risk patients. Many barriers to the widespread adoption of cancer screening currently exist in the primary care setting. Easy-to-perform, noninvasive screening tests can remove many of these barriers.

This continuing medical education activity will give primary care providers the tools to understand the value that blood testing will potentially bring to cancer detection in the primary care setting, as well as advice on how to fit it into their workflow in an efficient, patient-friendly manner. The interactive program will include a discussion with a panel of experts, using a case-based format to appropriately address key issues in screening for cancer in primary care, available tools to aid in early cancer detection, challenging scenarios, and new options that may be available for use in practice.

Benefits of Attending

  • Ability to discuss the limitations of current cancer screening tests with patients
  • Review newly available cancer screening tests with patients
  • Implement a workflow that incorporates cancer screening into a busy primary care practice
  • Develop an efficient method of subspecialty referral for patients who have positive cancer screening test results
