Monthly Oncology Tumor Boards
NCCN is offering a series of twelve multidisciplinary case-based webinars on a variety of topics, including: bladder cancer, breast cancer, chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL); chronic myeloid leukemia (CML); colorectal cancer, gastric cancer, head and neck cancers, kidney cancer, lung cancer (early-stage and advanced disease), multiple myeloma and prostate cancer. Each webinar will be facilitated by at least two faculty members. A different topic will be presented each month for twelve months (July 2017 until July 2018). The goal of this series is to ensure that members of a multidisciplinary team, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other relevant health care professionals, have the knowledge and skills necessary to apply the standards of care to their practice and healthcare setting for patients with various cancer types.
The NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology® (NCCN Guidelines®) are a set of step-by step evidence-based, consensus-driven recommendations that ensure that patients receive preventive, diagnostic treatment, and care that is most likely to lead to optimal outcomes. The NCCN recommendations are applicable to about 95% of patients. Clinicians need to consider the current clinical status of the patient, including general health, disease specifics, concomitant conditions, current and previous therapies, and the patients how to best apply appropriate standard of care including identifying circumstances where appropriate management requires adapting the NCCN Guidelines to the needs of the individual. This activity series will discuss the specific recommendations in the NCCN Guidelines as well as unique patient circumstances that impact how the NCCN Guidelines might be best applied.
