The field of breast cancer care is evolving so rapidly it is almost impossible to keep pace, and the breast cancer provider is constantly bombarded with new innovations. There is a constant array of promises, from next novel breast imaging, to new surgical approaches, to less toxic targeted individualized treatment instead of chemotherapy, to artificial intelligence either enhancing or replacing the provider. Breast cancer care is an integrated multidisciplinary practice and advances are occurring across the spectrum of care; thus, it is critical for providers who care for patients with this disease to be up to date. Join us as we help distinguish the noise from what new therapeutics, technologies, and techniques may be truly practice changing.
- Presentations by clinician experts who share their practical experience with these new technologies
- Sessions focus on critical aspects of breast cancer care
- Broadly applicable updates pertaining to all providers who take part in breast cancer care
