NCCN 2012 Congress Webinar Series: Gastrointestinal Cancers™: Screening of High-Risk Patients and Surgical Options (Hepatocellular Carcinoma)

December 14, 2012

This webinar series is designed to provide an in-depth analysis of the evidence and clinical decision-making that led to the development of the NCCN Guidelines® for Colorectal, Hepatocellular, Pancreatic, and Gastric/Esophageal 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 series will communicate the NCCN Guidelines in a direct and interactive way to community oncologists and other clinical professionals.
