Apr 05 - 07, 2019 | CME 18.25 | USD $1200 | New Orleans, Louisiana
2019 ASTRO Annual Refresher Course is organized by American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and will be held from Apr 05 - 07, 2019 at The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States of America. The meeting is designed to meet the interests of practicing radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, medical and clinical physicists, nurses and all other health professionals involved in the field of radiation oncology. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 18.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Program Content/Format : This course is designed to provide clinicians in practice and trainees with a comprehensive review and update of the clinical practice parameters across most sub-disciplines of radiation oncology. The course will review key evidence that forms the basis for current clinical practice guidelines and trends in new approaches that may be paradigm shifting areas. Additionally, the course will cover basic and applied radiobiological and physics principles that are relevant to and may explain results being obtained with current clinical practices. Statement of Need : The field of radiation oncology is rapidly evolving, particularly as imaging and delivery technologies advance. In addition, advancements in other oncologic specialties impact radiation oncology and must be integrated in current practices. It is extremely difficult for a practicing clinician to remain updated on all of the latest developments in cancer care. Without the latest information, this could lead to a suboptimal delivery of radiation therapy. Therefore, this course serves to bridge this gap by providing timely updates of best practices and emerging trends in order to provide clinicians with the most up-to-date information on developments in cancer therapy. Highlights of the meeting: • Interactive and didactic sessions that provide practicing clinicians and trainees with a comprehensive review of the core competencies, along with updates on the emerging trends across most sub-disciplines of radiation oncology. • Organized, thoughtful presenters covering evidence-based and practical current standards of care, in addition to ongoing clinical trials and future developments in the field. • Content that connects radiobiological and physics principles to relevant, clinical cases. • A highly-rated and concise meeting with networking opportunities. • A valuable aid in maintenance of certification, particularly for those preparing for their exam and/or those seeking live sessions offering MOC Part 2 SA-CME credits. Program Objectives Upon completion of this live activity, attendees should be able to do the following: • Describe and implement the latest radiation therapy treatment recommendations for clinical scenarios commonly encountered in clinical practice. • Discuss the biologic principles and rationale for combining radiation and modulators of the immune system. • Explain the role of radiation in palliative oncology.
