FDA-ASCO Public Workshop: 2019 Clinical Outcome Assessments in Cancer Clinical Trials

The one-day workshop will bring together international regulators, payers, industry, academia, and patients to advance the science of clinical outcome assessments – measuring how patients feel and function.

Improving how we quantify how patients experience symptoms and their impact on important functional outcomes is a critical addition to standard endpoints of survival and tumor measures. This year’s workshop will explore how physical function assessment can be incorporated into oncology trials and analyzed for regulatory decision making, with the goal of generalizing what can be learned to other forms of clinical assessments. There will be sessions on:

  • Exploring the value of electronic PRO assessment to facilitate learning healthcare systems
  • Systematically defining research objectives and framing questions using the estimand framework
  • Efforts to standardize an analysis framework for physical function in medical product review and labeling
  • Generalizing physical function learnings.

Breast Cancer: New Horizons, Current Controversies

Breast Cancer: New Horizons, Current Controversies encompasses the full range of breast cancer care from the pathogenesis of disease, to innovations in identification and treatment, to the management of breast cancer survivors. Breast cancer research has led to many developments in cell biology and genetics that offer new opportunities for diagnosing, treating, and defeating breast cancer. These advances simultaneously lead to knowledge, comprehension and implementation gaps for our target audience, which includes Medical Oncologists, Surgical Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, Breast Surgeons, General Surgeons, Internists, Physician’s Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Oncology Nurses and other clinicians interested in the care of women with breast cancer.

The primary goal of the conference is to assist health care professionals who care for breast cancer patients in reducing the disparities in breast cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment and long-term monitoring by helping them integrate evidence-based information into their practices. This engaging three-day course offers a convergence of clinical experts in medicine, surgery, radiology, and radiation oncology who will reinforce a multidisciplinary approach to translating scientific knowledge into practical applications in medicine. Interactive learning formats such as group case discussions, Q&A and panel presentations will assist clinicians in solving challenging clinical cases, addressing controversial topics, and developing practical treatment strategies.
