Emergencies in the Cancer Patient is organized by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) and will be held from Jun 07 - 08, 2019 at Zuckerman Research Center, New York, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event includes physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and registered nurses involved in the treatment and management of patients with active malignancies/cancers who present with acute complaints in an emergent setting. Overview Oncologic emergencies is becoming a rapidly evolving field in medicine over the last 10+ years. In addition to treating complications related to standard/traditional chemotherapies, the development of numerous new cancer treatment modalities present a whole new field of patient complaints that are just now starting to be seen in emergency rooms across the country. With very few dedicated cancer hospital emergency rooms, patients presenting with cancer emergencies are often inappropriately triaged, diagnosed, undertreated, or often simply referred back to their respective oncologists without resolution of their emergent issues. We bring together specialists from across all areas of the cancer treatment spectrum in order to update and enhance the ability of emergency room providers and staff on how to prepare for the common and not-so-common emergency scenarios with which a cancer patient could present. Objectives • Identify & recognize the most common presenting complaints of cancer patients in emergency rooms. • Identify current & developing cancer therapeutics with respect to their side-effects and complications. • Recognize the current limitations & challenges that remain in efficiently addressing cancer patient emergencies. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
