Agenda:It is widely acknowledged that the ASCO Annual Meeting is one of the premier oncology meetings at which key findings from practice changing studies and the latest clinical data are presented and discussed. This information is of vital importance to the improvement of patient outcome. Physicians need to be provided with the context with which to integrate this relevant information into their practices. This review of key clinical data has been designed specifically to meet this need for those busy physicians who are unable to attend ASCO 2015. Due to budgetary and time constraints, many oncologists and researchers are unable to attend the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting.
