8th Annual The Best of San Antonio: Breast Cancerâ€”Bench to Bedside
|Event Date/Time: Feb 05, 2011||End Date/Time: Feb 05, 2011|
Overview and Purpose
This symposium will concentrate on key results presented at recent major international oncology meetings, such as the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, with the potential to change standards of practice in breast oncology. The symposium will present these data in a clinical context in order to facilitate integration of the information into practice in an effort to improve treatment selection and patient care. Controversial and emerging topics, including optimal adjuvant and neoadjuvant therapies, the evolving role of biologic agents, current and future uses of breast cancer genotyping, and the optimal treatment of metastatic breast cancer, will be addressed. The symposium will also focus on new agents in development that will have an impact on the natural history of breast cancer. Case presentations and panel discussions will allow participants to discuss current controversies in the treatment of breast cancer with the faculty.
This educational program is directed toward medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists interested in the treatment of patients with breast cancer. Fellows, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of breast cancer are also invited to attend.
At the conclusion of this symposium, you should be able to:
Discuss emerging data on and recent advances in the treatment of patients with breast cancer and integrate key findings into clinical practice
