ABOUT THE 2018 COMMUNITY ONCOLOGY CONFERENCE
April 12-13 – National Harbor, MD
The Most Comprehensive Community Oncology Conference in the Country
Keeping Patients at the Center
Despite incredible advances in science and technology that have driven historic survival rates, ensuring the delivery of high quality, affordable, and accessible cancer care remains a challenge. With constantly shifting government policy and regulations, groundbreaking but increasingly expensive new therapies, third parties impeding treatment delivery, and other obstacles to patient care, challenges abound. While working to overcome these challenges every day, community oncology practices maintain a constant focus on the patient.
The 2018 Community Oncology Conference will center on keeping patients and their needs paramount in transforming our nation’s cancer care system. Over two days of learning and networking, community oncology practices and allied professionals will gain insights into how to overcome the challenges to patient care that they face on a daily basis.
Patient-centric care will be the focus of conversation at the 2018 Community Oncology Conference across four distinct tracks covering clinical, business, advocacy, and pharmacy issues. Attendees will learn about the latest immunotherapies and precision medicine, managing the growing intrusion of Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs), delivering cancer care through new models, such as the Oncology Care Model (OCM), how advocacy efforts can help drive change in Washington, DC, and much more – all with a packed agenda developed by community oncology professionals for community oncology professionals.
Balancing the many external and internal forces in community oncology requires constant adaption and teamwork. Attending the 2018 Community Oncology Conference will help keep you, your colleagues and staff, as well as payers and industry current with all that it takes to delivery community cancer care, while remaining focused on expert, tailored care for every patient. There is simply no conference or meeting matching the information sessions and networking opportunities among over 1,300 attendees than the Community Oncology Conference.
