Cancer screening, early detection, and treatment are rapidly changing, with new technologies and therapies being introduced. This year almost 2 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer. Therefore, it is critical for primary care providers to remain current with guidelines. Understanding the initial cancer therapy is also essential for optimal patient care, as patients often seek information from multiple sources, including their primary providers.

This conference will address numerous topics related to common forms of cancer commonly seen and often diagnosed by PCPs.
Following the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the capabilities of the PCI to raise awareness of the scope of cancer services available and how best to access and use them
  • Provide classification of high-risk individuals for various screening efforts to detect cancer early
  • Apply the latest standards for the treatment of early-stage breast, colorectal, and lung cancer
  • Experience the workings of tumor boards as panels of cancer experts conduct discussions with real patients to reach a multidisciplinary treatment plan consensus

Physicians, Nurses, Physician Assistants, Medical Researchers, and Pharmacists are invited to attend.
