17th Annual School of Breast Oncology®

17th Annual School of Breast Oncology®


October 31 – November 2, 2019
Emory Conference Center Hotel
1615 Clifton Road, N.E.
Atlanta, GA 30329

Overview

An increasing number of oncologists are focusing their clinical practices on the treatment of breast cancer, creating a need for specialized education. The School of Breast Oncology®, which has been held annually since 2003, was developed to advance patient care by providing a curriculum-based program focused exclusively on breast cancer clinical management. This intensive 3-day interactive program will provide a comprehensive review of data on the most important aspects of breast cancer biology, diagnostics, prevention and treatment, with lectures emphasizing clinical implications presented by leading clinical investigators.

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward medical, radiation, and surgical oncologists whose primary practice focus is breast cancer and who intend to reinforce their knowledge base and expand their expertise in breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and management. Participants will be primarily oncologists or fellows in training whose practice requires mastery and a critical understanding of the fundamental principles, pivotal published studies, and emerging information on the pathogenesis and management of breast cancer.

Learning Objectives

  • Review breast cancer biology, molecular subtyping, staging, and prognostic and/or predictive biomarkers, in order to better individualize therapy and counsel patients regarding conventional and investigational treatment options.
  • Integrate genomic and molecular biomarkers, and gene expression assays, into treatment planning to optimize outcomes for patients with breast cancer.
  • Discuss the application of current and evolving imaging options for diagnosing, staging, and monitoring breast cancer.
  • Incorporate current guidelines and evolving evidence with regard to local treatment options, including advances in surgery and radiation therapy, into the management of patients with breast cancer.
  • Individualize selection of systemic therapies for patients with early-stage or advanced/metastatic breast cancer by taking into consideration efficacy and safety data, expert guidelines, patient characteristics and co-morbidities, and genomic and/or molecular tumor information.
  • Evaluate emerging clinical data and evolving strategies for the treatment of breast cancer, and apply clinical trial data appropriately in order to optimize outcomes for individual patients.
  • Utilize supportive care strategies for preventing and managing treatment-related adverse events in patients receiving therapy for breast cancer.
  • Facilitate awareness of clinical trial opportunities based on knowledge of emerging approaches and variances in care in the field of breast cancer management.
