Oncology Best Practice™:
Precision Medicine for Community Oncologists: The Role of Tumor Testing Technologies in Cancer Care
August 2017 - December 2017
This activity will bring key clinical experts in the medical management of cancer directly into 8 institutions with an identified educational need for an in-depth discussion with healthcare teams on regarding the optimization of diagnosis and treatment selection using different tumor testing technologies. The theme of this program will be a practical case-based approach that incorporates recent practice-changing trial data and places these findings in the context of real-world clinical situations that allows for clinical decision-making in multidisciplinary settings. Importantly, a small group setting held in the collegial atmosphere of grand rounds/tumor boards allows participants open, fluid interaction with key opinion leaders to get their most pressing patient issues addressed. Indeed, the patient will remain the focus of this activity via practical assessments of how specific patient characteristics impact thought processes in the clinic, and how quality measures that used for reimbursement can be addressed via evidence-based guidelines. All these important issues require careful assessment to inform treatment decisions and optimize care.
This educational activity is primarily directed toward medical oncologists who treat patients with cancer. It will be developed to meet the needs of the “everyday oncologist” in community practice. Additionally, fellows, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of cancer are also invited to attend.
At the conclusion of this activity, you should be better prepared to:
