Program Description

The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) is in the process of making significant changes in the staging of cancer. When they take effect, these changes may affect as many as 40% of breast cancer patients. To illustrate how the new staging system will work, Dr. David Edmonson, a breast surgeon, and Dr. Kamaljeet Singh, a pathologist will demonstrate how breast cancer diagnoses will be affected. Then, David Rousseau will demonstrate how early pediatric case capture can be replicated in adults, and will open pathways to earlier enrollment of patients in clinical trials.

Target Audience

Practice teams including physicians, nurses, data managers, and other team members.
