Cancer Survivorship: A Personalized Precision Approach

Activity description

This activity consists of recorded presentations from the 28th Annual National Conference held in Minneapolis, Minn., on Oct. 16, 2019.

Numerous genetic and environmental factors influence cancer prognosis and outcomes. The interaction between genetic and environmental risk factors for cancer is complex, but understanding how they influence cancer risk and prognosis can lead to personalized treatment and a more precise prediction of outcomes. Risk prediction models for certain types of cancers based on environmental and genetic risk factors are currently being developed. Furthermore, with continually rising BMT rates and improving outcomes post-BMT, survivorship issues post-BMT are becoming increasingly important.
