Target Audience and Needs

Medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, fellows, residents, physician assistants, nurses, radiation therapists, and social workers need to receive regular updates on advances in the diagnosis, staging, and treatment of breast cancer.  The tumor board will emphasize the importance of a multidisciplinary team in managing patients with all stages of breast cancer.  It will serve as a forum to review and evaluate cancer care protocols, treatment algorithms, and evidence-based results of clinical trials.  It also aims to shorten referral times for patients with newly diagnosed breast cancer, enhance the quality of breast cancer care, promote more effective consultation methods, facilitate better care coordination, and improve patient outcomes.


Educational Methods

Educational methods will include case presentations, literature review, and roundtable discussions.


Objectives

At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:

  • Demonstrate greater understanding of the treatment algorithms for different types of breast cancer.
  • Use a multidisciplinary team approach to improve consultation practices regarding the diagnosis, staging, treatment, and follow-up of patients with breast cancer.
  • Review and evaluate ongoing cancer clinical trials for evidence-based recommendations for the continuum of breast cancer care.
  • Apply strategies to improve the referral of patients with newly diagnosed breast cancer.

Evaluation

Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
