Challenging Cases in Breast Cancer - 2021 Annual Meeting
The course has two components. First, the moderator leads a discussion among the panelists of pre-selected difficult cases. These are chosen to highlight current controversies and uncertainties in the modern management of breast cancer, and also to emphasize recent practice-changing clinical trials. In addition to radiation oncologists, the panel includes a breast medical oncologist and breast surgical oncologist to demonstrate the coordinated multidisciplinary collaboration that is essential in modern breast cancer management. The panel also is selected to represent a diversity of radiation oncologists and practice patterns.
Second, the audience had an opportunity to both ask questions about the cases previously presented and also to ask the panel questions about challenging cases or situations they have encountered in their own practice. Questions were asked during the panel, or emailed in advance to the moderator. The amount of time dedicated to each component depended on the total time for the panel, but at least 15 minutes were reserved for audience questions.
This activity is available from January 17, 2022, through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on January 16, 2025.
