This edition of Medical Crossfire® provides community oncologists with evidence-based perspectives on the rationale for current standards of care in soft tissue sarcoma (STS), clinical questions and challenges, and how to integrate optimal approaches into clinical practice. It is designed to update practitioners on advances in the field and focuses on the appropriate diagnosis of STS, multi-disciplinary management, use of new agents, and the value of appropriate referral to a sarcoma specialist under a collaborative-care model. Our program chair, George Demetri, MD, leads the program faculty, Mark Agulnik, MD, Shreyaskumar R. Patel, MD, and Richard F. Riedel in extensive panel discussions on 3 key topics. Throughout the activity, interactive online questions are posted to participants to assess their knowledge and facilitate self-assessment.
