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.
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.
Review breast cancer biology, staging, and prognostic and/or predictive markers, in order to better individualize therapy and counsel patients regarding conventional and investigational treatment options.
Integrate biomarkers, molecular assays, and other risk assessment tools into treatment decision-making algorithms to optimize outcomes for patients with breast cancer
Discuss current and evolving imaging options for diagnosing, staging, and monitoring breast cancer.
Incorporate current guidelines and evolving evidence on local treatment options, including new approaches 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, as well as patient characteristics and tumor subtype
Evaluate emerging clinical data and evolving strategies for the treatment of breast cancer, and apply clinical trial data appropriately in order to optimize the outcome of individual patients
Utilize supportive care strategies for preventing and managing treatment-related toxicities in patients receiving treatment for breast cancer
Facilitate awareness of clinical trial opportunities based on knowledge of emerging agents and variances in care in the field of breast cancer management
