    Blood Cancers

    Wednesday, August 14, 2024

    12p-1p CST

    About the Webinar: 

    Blood cancers are a heterogenous group of disorders with very variable prognosis. Correct diagnosis is the key. Treatment options have significantly changed in the last decade and prognosis has improved significantly, for most patients. Living with the disease, survivorship and integration into the community remains integral to success.

    Learning Objectives: 

    1) Describe the different types of blood cancers.

    2) Identify national and local blood cancer incidence and mortality.

    3) Review the historical and current landscape of blood cancers.

    4) Illustrate the impact of blood cancer survivorship.
