Event Overview
Welcome message:

Advances in all aspects of cancer care—including diagnostic, therapeutic, and supportive strategies—form the foundation for recent changes in the management of solid and hematologic malignancies. For many tumor types, integration into practice of novel testing approaches, systemic therapies, molecular targeted therapies, immunotherapies, and multimodal strategies, continue to improve patient outcomes in multiple lines of care. Each year, the CFS®, brings together more than 2,000 oncologists, hematologists, radiation oncologists, immunologists, pharmacists, oncology nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and case managers, with the aim of promoting the delivery of state-of-the-art cancer care for the most challenging clinical scenarios. At the 34th Annual CFS®, our internationally renowned faculty will provide expert insights on the latest developments in cancer therapeutics. This exciting 3-day program will offer oncology practitioners an unparalleled opportunity to learn how innovative approaches fit into evolving treatment paradigms to optimize care and outcomes for their patients with cancer.

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward oncologists, hematologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists interested in the treatment/management of patients with cancer. Radiotherapists, immunologists, fellows, physician assistants, researchers, case managers, and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of cancer are also invited to attend.
