2021 Multidisciplinary Thoracic Cancers Symposium
The 2021 Multidisciplinary Thoracic Cancers Symposium is a two-and-a-half day meeting featuring interactive case discussions; educational sessions on multidisciplinary therapies, new targeted therapies, immunotherapy, treatment and screening guidelines, supportive care; and oral abstract sessions highlighting the most current, evidence-based practices. The goal of this meeting is to provide participants with updates on current clinical and translational initiatives in thoracic malignancies, including targeted therapy, immunotherapy, advanced radiation techniques, surgical methodologies, and pathological advancements in molecular categorization that are relevant to daily clinical practice. Additionally, attendees will be updated on the appropriate integration of these advancements in their daily practice, including indication, patient selection, combinations of different therapeutic modalities, prevention, and management of common toxicities in the context of potentially improved clinical outcomes. This educational activity will focus on several of the most complex and controversial topics in the multidisciplinary management of patients with thoracic cancers to optimize incorporation of recent advances into daily practice.
This meeting is designed to meet the interests of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, physicists, nurses, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, radiation therapists, radiation dosimetrists and pulmonologists.
Upon completion of this live activity, participants should be able to:
- Integrate locally ablative treatment modalities for appropriate patients with oligometastatic lung cancer.
- Identify the potential advantages of proton-beam radiation therapy for thoracic malignancies.
- Implement proper monitoring and intervention strategies for immune-related toxicities.
- Explain the benefit of CT screening for lung cancer.
- Discuss the relevance of molecular diagnostic testing in the management of patients with thoracic malignancies.
- Explain the role of multidisciplinary care for early-stage/locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer.
