This webinar was recording on Thursday, December 14, 2023.
The Surgical Oncology Forum aims to provide free, one-hour webinars to a professional audience on specific topics in Surgical Oncology. The Forums will highlight multidisciplinary decision-making with a handful of leading medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, and other relevant specialists from New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center and its Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Forum will meet quarterly in a virtual setting, with each session focusing on a different form of cancer. It aims to inform general surgeons of the recent advances in cancer management and to do so in a manner that allows the course participants to rapidly assimilate new information into their surgical practice. The Forum will cover the most recent and relevant data regarding diagnosis and staging, surgical technique, avoidance and management of complications, and adjuvant therapies and emphasizes recent advances in the treatment of Lung, Breast, and Endocrine Cancer Care. The criteria for faculty selection are clinical expertise and teaching effectiveness. The course format includes didactic lectures and panel discussions to provide more time for participants to interact with faculty and peers and is created to facilitate the integration of the most current surgical oncology concepts into clinical practice. This activity is designed to improve learners' competence in advances in cancer management. Gaining up-to-date knowledge and enhancing education on the best treatment would optimize those patients' outcomes.
