Recorded Presentations from the NCCN 2016 Congress Webinar Series: Breast Cancer
Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women in the United States and is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer death. The clinical evaluation and therapeutic options for patients with noninvasive or invasive breast cancer are complex and varied. Healthcare professionals need to be educated on current and emerging scientific data to make evidence-based treatment decisions, to communicate treatment options to patients effectively in order to make shared treatment decisions, and to provide optimal care for patients with breast cancer.
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.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who manage patients with breast cancer.
These activities are approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ and are also certified for nurses and pharmacists. Complete accreditation details are provided at the beginning of the individual activities.
