Need

Far too many cancers do not have a proven means of prevention or effective treatments. We must gain better insights into the biological, environmental, and behavioral influences on these cancers to make a difference for the millions of Americans who suffer from them.

 

Precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. This approach will allow doctors and researchers to predict more accurately which treatment and prevention strategies for a particular disease will work in which groups of people. It is in contrast to a "one-size-fits-all" approach, in which disease treatment and prevention strategies are developed for the average person, with less consideration for the differences between individuals.

Intended Audience

This activity is designed for individuals who are involved in cancer treatment and education of cancer patients and their families: oncology physicians, primary care physicians, oncology nurses, nurse practitioners, clinical research associates, health educators, social workers, psychologists, chaplains and other interested health care professionals involved in cancer care. Patients, caregivers and community members are also encouraged to attend.

Elements of Competence

This CME/CNE activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of patient care and procedural skills, interpersonal and communications skills and professionalism.

Learning Objectives

This activity is designed to educate physicians, nurses and other health care providers about issues related to patient-centered cancer care. Learning objectives for this conference include:

  • Describe the scientific challenges that remain for successfully implementing precision oncology strategies and the hope that precision medicine provides for patients.
  • Explore the use of a holistic wellness goal setting tool to personalize various survivorship care plan templates.
  • Discuss strategies for determining who benefits most from therapies and genetic screening in the maintenance and/or surveillance phase.
  • Delineate the principles of delivering patient- and family-centered cancer care.
  • Identify biological, psychological and social factors relevant to personalized symptom management.
  • Discuss targeted and tailored interventions for cancer pain and co-occurring symptoms.
  • Identify the challenges and opportunities in using genomics for precision medicine in oncology.
  • Recognize the critical importance of vulnerability through introspection, risk and the necessity of connection.
  • Identify three keystones to successfully implement oncology rehabilitation
  • Describe the benefits and limitations of the new multi-gene panel options for hereditary cancer genetic testing and risk assessment
  • Understand the advancements and techniques used to individualize radiotherapy for cancer patients
  • Recognize some of the intricate features and difficulties of doctor-patient communication and provide ways to identify areas where improvement is needed and possible, and most importantly, pinpoint starting points for enacting those changes

  • Identify implementation strategies and challenges to define, screen and address distress in patients with cancer.

  • Understand existing research for breast cancer treatment decision-making and challenges to studying and improving this decision process for patients.
