CANCER CME CENTER: OUR MISSION

Cancer, a worldwide health problem, accounts for 1 in 4 deaths in the United States. According to the American Cancer Society, a total of 1.7 million new cancer cases and 580,000 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the United States in 2013. Experts estimate that approximately one-third of the deaths from cancer can be prevented.

Since there are over 100 different types of cancer, treatment depends on the size and location of the tumor, whether it has metastasized, and the patient’s overall general health. And so, clinicians need continuing medical education about current and emerging treatments, which may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, molecular-targeted therapy, and/or combinations of these interventions.

The Cancer CME Center delivers practical and clinically relevant evidence and expert opinion to healthcare professionals on how to manage their patients with any one of these cancers and how to achieve improved clinical outcomes.
