    January 23-25, 2015

    Conrad Miami, Miami Florida

    FLASCO Members Luis R. Raez, MD & Caio Rocha Lima, MD, invite you to attend this Meeting.

    This is a two day course designed for medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNP), physician assistants (PA), oncology nurses, registered pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and radiation therapists. General practitioners (internal medicine and family medicine) will have the benefit of a state of the art review of the standard of care and new developments in cancer therapy. Residents in training and fellows from these specialties are encouraged to attend. Topics in solid tumors and hematological malignancies will be reviewed; that will include topics in breast cancer, gastrointestinal (GI) malignancies, head and neck cancers, hematological malignancies (i.e. multiple myeloma, CLL and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma), genito-urinary cancers (GU), brain tumors, malignant melanoma, and non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) will be presented. There will also be a special session devoted to the area of supportive care in oncology, with emphasis on bone metastases, hypercalcemia, and management of chemotherapy related side effects like febrile neutropenia. The areas of focus for this conference will include the review of current standards of care in the treatment of all of the aforementioned malignancies and new developments in these areas of cancer care.

    Emphasis on the molecular diagnosis and individualization of cancer therapy based of molecular profiling. Presentations from latest national (ASCO or ASH 2014) and International (ESMO 2014 and IASLC 2014) meetings will be reviewed and guidelines for cancer care will be emphasized. The participants in the meeting will have the opportunity not only to hear outstanding reviews of these topics but also engage in personal interactions with our oncology experts in the field that have national and international recognition during our questions and answer sessions.
