Keeping up with new data and applying up-to-date information in treating patients with cancer has been identified by healthcare professionals as the biggest challenge in the treatment of hematologic and oncologic disorders. Featuring a faculty of internationally recognized experts, the CTCA REVIEW online webcasts highlight cutting-edge research and clinical studies presented during recent American Society of Hematology (ASH) and American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meetings. As highlights from the annual CTCA REVIEW, a live review course hosted by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, the course material has been divided into two online activities. This online activity highlights Oncology/Solid Tumor content. A second online activity highlights Hematology/Oncology content.
The CTCA REVIEW Online Webcasts are intended for healthcare providers involved in the care of hematology and oncology patients, including medical oncologists, hematologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, oncology fellows, resident trainees, primary care providers, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, chiropractors, naturopathic physicians, and pharmacists.
After participating in each CTCA REVIEW Online Webcast, learners should be able to:
Interpret new and emerging data presented at the ASH and ASCO annual conferences
Incorporate newer evidence- based data to assess the care of their patients with cancer
Incorporate knowledge gained into appropriate management strategies to improve outcomes in patients with cancer
