Media: Internet - based

Activity Overview

In Clinical Vignette Series: 37th Annual Chemotherapy Foundation Symposium (CFS®): Innovative Cancer Therapy for Tomorrow®, oncology thought leaders address clinical challenges faced by community oncologists, like you, and offer their insight and commentary on the clinical application of new data and advances. This interactive, online activity features a series of case-based vignettes, self-reflection questions, and brief audio-video clips in which the program faculty share their approaches and answer other related questions. This activity touches on established and emerging standards of care in multiple myeloma, as well as cancers of the breast, lung, kidney, pancreas, and liver. It is based on content presented at the 2019 CFS® meeting. This annual gathering has a longstanding history of providing education, guidance, perspectives, and solutions to practicing oncologists. Delivering state-of-the-art cancer care requires incorporation of new clinical advances and data into practice. Across all cancer types, improvements in patient outcomes are being driven by novel approaches in testing, systemic therapy, targeted therapy and immunotherapies, and combination strategies. This online activity provides an unparalleled opportunity to learn new methods of optimizing and personalizing care for your patients with cancer.
