Advances in Colorectal Cancer – From Screening to Innovative Care

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Colorectal cancer is the #2 cause of cancer death in North America. While we successfully screen for colorectal cancer, many gaps in evidence-based treatment remain. Current practitioners have questions about the role of circulating tumor DNA in the diagnosis and management of early to advanced colorectal cancer; the role of endoscopic microsurgery in the management of colon cancer; and when full oncologic surgery is required to deliver the most appropriate care for colon cancer. For patients with advanced, unresectable disease, how can hepatic intra-arterial (HIA) chemotherapy allow surgical resection of previously unresectable liver metastasis? What are the latest evidence and guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of colorectal cancer? Join our renowned, multidisciplinary faculty for this stimulating day of learning.
