Conference Brochure

Multidisciplinary Thoracic Cancers Symposium is organized by American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and will be held from Mar 14 - 16, 2019 at Hilton San Diego Bayfront, San Diego, California, United States of America.

The target audience for this medical event is designed to meet the interests of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, physicists, nurses, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, thoracic radiologists and pulmonary medicine physicians. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 16.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ .

Course Description:
The 2019 Multidisciplinary Thoracic Cancer Symposium is a two-and-a-half day meeting featuring interactive case discussions; educational sessions on new 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 early phase clinical and translational initiatives in thoracic malignancies, including targeted therapy, immunotherapy, advanced radiation and surgical methodologies, and pathological advancements in molecular categorization that are relevant to daily clinical practice. Additionally, the attendees will be updated on the appropriate integration of all the advancements in their daily practice, including indication, patient selection, combinations of different therapeutic modalities, prevention and management of common toxicities.

Statement of Need:
It is imperative that thoracic oncology physicians remain current in the state-of-the-art scientific advances and technologies. This meeting provides attendees the opportunity to gain exposure to the latest science in surgery, radiation oncology, radiology, pathology, pulmonary medicine and medical oncology related to thoracic malignancies. Attendees need to determine how the latest scientific advances will affect their day-to-day practice, and thus be able to narrow competency gaps across the various specialties that focus on treatment of thoracic malignancies. Attendees also need to determine greatest obstacles that hinder implementing scientific advances in thoracic oncology into their day-to-day practice.

Program Objectives:
Upon completion of this live activity, attendees should be able to:
• Discuss the relevance of the precision medicine initiative for clinical practice in thoracic malignancies.
• Explain the appropriate integration of targeted and immunotherapy in the daily clinical management of thoracic malignancies.
• Explain the application and limitations of advanced radiation and surgical techniques in thoracic malignancies.
