New Frontiers in Diagnosis, Screening, and Management of Inherited Cancer Syndromes
This activity will provide an interdisciplinary educational forum in which to update state-of-the-art science, discuss real-world cases, curate interesting pedigrees and prepare case summaries to disseminate new knowledge in translational genomics and evidence-based clinical management of high-risk patients and their family members. The goal is to improve detection of cancer syndromes and prevent cancer morbidity and mortality.
This activity is brought to you in partnership with City of Hope.
This activity has been designed for physicians, physician assistants, advanced nurse practitioners, genetic counselors, oncology nurses, and other health care professionals currently involved in providing cancer genetics risk assessment services or initiating such services in their health care system. Special efforts will be made to educate clinicians practicing in geographically and/or socioeconomically underserved communities.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participants will be able to:
- Outline advanced concepts in genetics, genomics and next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies each year;
- Recognize the impact of current advances in experimental therapeutics based on germline genomics in oncology practice;
- Describe the challenges of managing affected individuals from high risk families and their at risk relatives;
- Identify appropriate clinical management of patients and at risk family members with inherited pathogenic mutations in emerging cancer susceptibility genes.
