Event Overview
Welcome message:

Research advances are leading at an unprecedented rate to opportunities for greater personalization of management approaches for patients with cancer and the promise of related improvements in disease-control and patient-reported outcomes. A challenge facing clinical practitioners, oncology care teams and healthcare systems is the identification and timely integration of these important innovations, often developed at specialty centers, into day-to-day clinical practice in the community setting and closer to where patients live.

A central goal of this CME course is to help busy oncologists and other oncology care team members acquire clinically-relevant, cutting-edge knowledge and translate these innovations into best practices, using lessons learned within the MSK Cancer Alliance and highlighting the personalized approach to cancer care taken by MSK and its Alliance Members. 

Incorporating a case-based format that utilizes real-life, clinical scenarios, the moderator of each multidisciplinary expert panel will use audience response to examine key decision points and guide targeted commentary and presentations from panel members that include oncologists and other oncology care team members. 

Panels will cover eight different diseases, both rare and more common, and address a spectrum management issues across the care continuum. Immunotherapy, from evolving predictors of response to symptom management for these new agents, will be the focus of two keynote talks.

After this course, attendees will be better able to tailor care to meet the unique needs of their patients and appreciate the role of dynamic partnerships among providers to optimally personalize and improve outcomes of cancer care.
