Doing What’s Best for Your Patients: Putting the Latest Findings from the 2022 ASCO Annual Meeting Into Practice in LMIC Settings

To guide physicians in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in putting the latest science and evidence from the 2022 ASCO Annual Meeting into practice, ASCO is offering two free webinars in the weeks following the meeting. Each webinar will be 30 minutes long, with one focusing on breast cancer abstracts and one on gastrointestinal cancer abstracts.

During each webinar, an expert with knowledge about resource-limited settings will summarize selected abstracts on that session’s topic, and panelists will discuss how to apply the abstract findings to resource-limited practice settings. The discussion will include practical considerations in applying the research and how to assess the research critically, including its impact on quality of life and overall survival.

Registration is required to attend, but registration is free and open to all. The link for each webinar will appear on this page in advance of the meeting. Recordings of each webinar will be available afterward on this webpage for on-demand viewing.
