NCCN 2021 Virtual Congress: Hematologic Malignancies™

October 14, 2021 to October 16, 2021

The treatment of hematologic malignancies has become increasingly complex as a result of the rapid pace and number of advances in the biology and treatment of hematologic malignancies and the numerous drugs that have been approved or are in development, many with novel mechanisms of action. Clinicians who manage patients with hematologic malignances are challenged to stay abreast of advances in the evolving diagnostic and treatment landscape to ensure optimal patient outcomes.

The NCCN 2021 Virtual Congress: Hematologic Malignancies™ will focus on updates to the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®), new, emerging and novel therapeutic agents, advances in cancer care, and the practical management of patients with hematologic malignancies.
