Recorded Presentations from the NCCN 2020 Virtual Congress: Hematologic Malignancies™
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 novel 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.
This program 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.
This information was originally presented at the NCCN 2020 Virtual Congress: Hematologic Malignancies™ held on October 9-10, 2020.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, hematologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, and other health care professionals who manage patients with hematologic malignancies.
The goal of the NCCN 2020 Virtual Congress: Hematologic Malignancies™ is to ensure that members of the interprofessional oncology care team, including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, and other relevant health care professionals, have the knowledge and skills necessary to:
- Apply the current standards of oncology care and key updates in the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) to optimize the management of patients with various hematologic malignancies.
- Review new, emerging, and novel therapeutic agents and treatment strategies and incorporate these into the management of patients with hematologic malignancies.
- Communicate with members of the interprofessional oncology care team to improve collaborative performance in the management of patients with hematologic malignancies.
