Event Overview
Welcome message:

This conference should be of value to medical oncologists, surgical oncologists,dermatologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and oncology nurses.

After attending this conference, participants should be able to:


Utilize the latest criteria and clinical evidence for treatment options for melanoma patients with clinically localized disease and interpret the components of the updated AJCC staging system for melanoma (Knowledge, Competence, Performance)

Utilize the latest criteria and clinical evidence for treatment options for melanoma patients with regional disease and interpret the components of the updated AJCC staging system for melanoma (Knowledge, Competence, Performance)

Evaluate latest criteria and clinical evidence to sequence/combine therapies in melanoma patients with distant metastases (Knowledge, Competence)

Appraise the most recent evidence on biomarkers and other patient selection criteria to choose treatments in patients with advanced/metastatic melanoma (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes)

Identify potential toxicities of current therapies and strategies to improve patient outcomes (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes)

Goal


There has been rapid and exciting progress in the development of targeted, immune and intralesional therapies for melanoma. We now have many therapeutic options that did not exist only a few years ago. Thus, it can be challenging to determine which new therapy is the best to use in a heterogeneous population of patients. This conference will discuss the optimal treatment approaches for different presentations of early and advanced melanoma to facilitate the optimization and personalization of patient management for this disease.


Evaluation

A course evaluation form will provide participants with the opportunity to comment on the value of the program content to their practice decisions, performance improvement activities, or possible impact on patient health status. Participants will also have the opportunity to comment on any perceived commercial bias in the presentations as well as to identify future educational topics.
