Annual Updates from ASH 2018: Practice Changing Abstracts

Chicago, IL US
February 15, 2019
Our goal is to join community-based providers and academic oncologists to reach our Healthy People 2020 target of 160.0 cancer related deaths per 100,000 individuals or lower. In order to reach this goal, the Annual Updates from ASH 2018: Practice Changing Abstracts addresses early treatment options and medical advances that can be implemented in an effort to reduce cancer related deaths. It will provide physicians and other healthcare professionals with information that will improve their competence and ultimately improve patient outcomes by bridging the gap between the level of care provided in the community and the care provided at an academic medical center. By providing them with important developments from the most recent ASH conference, we want to educate and empower community-based oncologists on best practices for treating hematologic cancers and also inform them of the indicators of when a patient needs to be referred for tertiary level care.
