NCCN 2012 Congress Series: Genitourinary Cancers™

Nashville, TN US
July 20, 2012

This congress is a full-day educational program designed to provide an in-depth analysis of the evidence and clinical decision-making that led to the development of the NCCN Guidelines® for Bladder, Kidney, and Prostate Cancers. Participants will learn how to implement the NCCN Guidelines recommendations into their practice and gain a clear understanding of the most up-to-date treatment recommendations for these cancers. As research continues in these areas and new information emerges, it is critical that clinicians are kept up-to-date and informed. This congress will communicate the NCCN Guidelines in a direct and interactive way to community oncologists and other clinical professionals.
