American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Session Code: PS232
Title: Clinical Trial Results and Implementation into the Surgical Oncology Practice Today
Date and Time of Session: Tuesday, October 18: 4:15 pm - 5:45 pm
Description: The immediate challenge to improving the quality of surgical care is not discovering new knowledge but rather integrating what we already know into practice. This panel will present the results from the highest impact surgical clinical trials in cancer that have reported results over the last one plus year; discuss how these results should impact the current management of the surgical oncology patient; provide an overview and familiarize surgeons with state of the art strategies for translating research into practice, and address barriers to successful implementation and how to overcome them. Studies to be covered will depend on the reporting of clinical trial results, but will likely include topics such as neoadjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer and laparoscopic resection of rectal cancer.
