The National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) welcomes clinicians from teaching and community hospitals and academic centers in the general oncology community to submit patient case studies for the NCCN 2020 Annual Conference, scheduled to take place on March 20 – 22, 2020, at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida.

To submit a patient case for consideration, please complete the following questionnaire. If you are submitting more than one case, please complete a separate questionnaire for each case. The deadline for submitting cases is Tuesday, December 31, 2019, at 11:59 PM EST (GMT 05:00).

Please answer the questions with as much detailed information as possible. Complete answers will assist us with the case selection process.

 

Submission Guidelines: There is no fee associated with submitting a case study, and you do not need to be registered to attend the conference to submit a case. You may submit more than one case for consideration. Please note that you may be asked to complete an NCCN Continuing Education Conflicts of Interest Form to disclose any relevant financial relationships from the past 12 months.

Selection Criteria: Cases will be evaluated and selected by the conference organizers. Cases should address current and relevant issues in oncology, prompt meaningful discussion questions, and demonstrate valuable teaching points.

Usage: Selected case studies will be presented and discussed by a panel of experts from NCCN Member Institutions during designated sessions at the conference. The cases may be modified to help facilitate the discussion. The cases also will be featured on the conference app and may be published on the NCCN Continuing Education Portal (education.nccn.org) after the conference. 

Recognition: All faculty for the conference have been confirmed. Case study contributors will be recognized in the conference materials, including the in-room slides, and verbally by the moderator at the beginning of each session.
