Program Description

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.

Intended Audience

Educational Objectives

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
