Alaska Multidisciplinary Oncology Conference

Anchorage, AK US
May 13, 2023

The Alaska Multidisciplinary Oncology Conference is a 1-day educational and scientific meeting that will focus on key clinical topics in the management of common malignancies. This conference will feature leading experts discussing the latest diagnostic, therapeutic, and supportive care strategies in cancer management. The field of oncology is continually evolving with the introduction of new targeted therapies, cellular therapies, and immunotherapy. These advances present new opportunities to tailor treatment approaches for cancer patients based on disease-related and patient-related factors. Significant disparities exist in access to continuing education for physicians practicing in rural settings. Engaging, easily accessible continuing education activities focusing on content that has practical applications for the provider may significantly impact patient outcomes. There is a need for these educational activities in rural settings to update practicing healthcare providers about recent advances in the field. This highly practical and interactive symposium will provide a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals to learn from and interact with well-known experts in the field. 

Target Audience

  • Hematologist/Oncologists
  • Oncology Physician Assistants/Nurse Practitioners
  • Oncology Pharmacists
  • Oncology Nurses

 

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review pertinent clinical trial data for the standard of care and novel management strategies for common malignancies.
  • Discuss the study design and primary endpoints of recently reported and ongoing trials that have influenced the changes in the standards of care for cancer patients.
  • Individualize management of cancer patients based on emerging data from clinical trials and evolving expert guidelines.
  • Compare and contrast the safety and efficacy profiles of novel therapeutic strategies that impact the management of common malignancies.
