Community Practice Connections™: Addressing Clinical Gaps in Thyroid Cancer Management: New Agents, New Testing Paradigms, and Methods to Facilitate Multidisciplinary Care and Coordination

Release Date: July 22, 2021
Expiration Date: July 22, 2022

Activity Overview

Thyroid cancer is the most common malignancy of the endocrine system, and it represents a broad heterogeneity of disease. In the past several years, a greater understanding of the pathogenesis of these thyroid cancer subtypes has led to a number of new and emerging agents that have revolutionized the treatment of these malignancies.

This Community Practice Connection™ program provides an in-depth review of some of the key highlights from the 2021 ASCO Annual Meeting, held in June 2021. This unique and engaging multi-media activity is ideal for the community-based clinician and focuses on the practical aspects of managing patients with thyroid cancer, putting recent clinical trial data into clinical context. The program is designed for those who did not attend the live meeting and to help reinforce learnings for those who did.
