Recorded Presentation from the NCCN 2015 Congress Webinar Series: Breast Cancer - SABCS Updates: Adjuvant and Neoadjuvant Therapy

As the complexity and importance of screening, testing, and individualized treatment strategies for breast cancer have increased, so has clinicians’ reliance on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Breast Cancer Guidelines and NCCN’s educational interventions to increase knowledge and bridge the gaps between knowledge and competence.

This webinar series will provide an in-depth analysis of the evidence and clinical decision-making that led to the development of the NCCN Guidelines for Breast Cancer, to ensure that oncologists and other oncology healthcare professionals have a clear understanding of breast cancer diagnosis, staging and initial therapy; radiation therapy in the management of locoregional disease; adjuvant therapy for locoregional disease; and metastatic disease management.
