NCCN: 14th ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Dear Oncology Professional:
Register nowfor a continuing education event hosted by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network – NCCN 14th Annual Conference: Clinical Practice Guidelines & Quality Cancer Care™. This NCCN Conference will include a special roundtable discussion on cancer survivorship issues. The oncology health care system is facing a growing number of cancer survivors. With an estimated 12 million cancer survivors in the U. S. today and a documented shortage of oncologists, these survivors are challenging the capacity of our health care system. They are reluctant to leave their oncologist after treatment has concluded and go back to their primary care physician for follow-up.
