Advances in medicine and technology are emerging faster than ever before. To harness this momentum, ASCO is convening Breakthrough: A Global Summit for Oncology Innovators – a new meeting focused on the intersection of medicine, scientific discovery, and innovations in technology. The inaugural meeting will take place October 11-13 at the Centara Grand Hotel CentralWorld in Bangkok, Thailand.
ASCO recently published standards on the safe handling of hazardous drugs in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. ASCO’s standards largely endorse best practices issued by other stakeholder groups for safely handling hazardous drugs but offer alternatives in several key areas where more research is needed to identify evidence-based safety measures.
ASCO Symposia bring together specialists from around the world to offer educational content and the latest scientific discoveries in the respective fields, while providing ample time for networking and collaboration. Upcoming Symposia include the Palliative and Supportive Care in Oncology Symposium, Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium, Cancer Survivorship Symposium: Advancing Care in Research, Genitourinary Cancers Symposium and more.
