Overview:

This symposium will provide pediatricians, adolescent medicine specialists, internists, family practitioners, hematologists, oncologists, Emergency Room providers, psychologists, social workers, nurses and nurse practitioners with the most current information about the identification, etiology and management of common hematologic and oncologic problems that affect adolescents and young adults (AYA). A potpourri of topics will be presented by renowned specialists from a variety of disciplines. Attendance offers participants an opportunity to update their knowledge regarding the management of AYA patients with both common and complex hematologic and oncologic diagnoses, as well as the care of survivors of cancer. A section focusing on supportive care will address AYA-specific issues that providers often find difficult to discuss with their patients. Participation in this educational offering will result in better identification, diagnosis, decision-making, communication and treatment when AYA patients present with hematologic or oncologic disorders. Networking breaks will enable attendees to interact with faculty and forge new collegial relationships that will improve their patients’ experiences.
