Conference Brochure

MSK Oncology Acupuncture: From Neuroscience to Patient Wellbeing is organized by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) and will be held from Apr 24 - 25, 2020 at Mortimer B. Zuckerman Research Center, New York City, New York, United States of America.

Target Audience:
This symposium is intended for health care providers (physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and acupuncturists) who diagnose, manage, and treat side effects of cancer treatment and those who develop programs (administrators) to improve quality of life for people with cancer.

Overview:
This symposium will focus on the neuroscientific mechanisms of acupuncture for pain and symptom management and its application in cancer care. On the first day, we will connect neuroscience and basic research with clinical evidence for oncology acupuncture symptom management. Our international panelists will also present the progress and challenges of providing acupuncture services in the oncology setting.

On the second day (half-day), we will focus on implementation by opening with a multidisciplinary discussion on integration of acupuncture for symptom management, followed by breakout workshops in the areas of designing and conducting high quality acupuncture clinical trials in oncology, building clinical oncology acupuncture programs, and training oncology acupuncturists. We will conclude by formulating an action plan for moving forward.

Live Simulcast Available (Friday only):
We are pleased to offer a live simulcast for day one only, available to all non-MSK employees. CME credit is offered for the live simulcast and active participation is required throughout the course. We do hope you will attend in person but understand that can sometimes be a challenge, so we are happy to offer the live simulcast as an option. Registration for the simulcast is required; please select the "Live Simulcast" option during course registration. A link to view the symposium will be emailed to you the day before the course begins.

Objectives:
• Describe the mechanisms of acupuncture involving central modulation and peripheral stimulation
• Evaluate the current evidence of acupuncture for symptom management
• Determine strategies for engaging healthcare providers and health care systems to disseminate and implement acupuncture research findings in cancer care 

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
