Oncology Conferences Promote Knowledge and Learning
Annually, St. Luke's Hospital hosts cancer specific conferences to help bring together researchers, clinicians and caregivers to educate them on the latest developments in diagnosis, treatment and quality of life in cancer care. In 2015, our Continuing Medical Education (CME) committee organized two important oncology conferences.

Our Annual Cancer Staging Conference was held on June 19, 2015 on "The Evaluation of Staging and Treatment of Lymphoma." This multidisciplinary conference was designed to educate physicians and other members of the healthcare team on how to identify and determine the initial stage of Lymphoma, describe modern radiation therapy techniques to treat Lymphomas, describe response-based treatment approaches to treat Lymphoma and evaluate the pros and cons of chemotherapy alone versus a combined approach to the treatment of Lymphoma.

On October 21, 2015 St. Luke's Hospital hosted the 33rd Annual Oncology Update: Personalized Medicine for Patients with Lymphoma. This multi-disciplinary oncology conference explored the importance of personalizing treatment regimens for specific types of Lymphoma. The conference also discussed the significance of specific genetic abnormalities for Lymphoma and the response to individual therapies as well as focusing on caring for the patient as an individual as a basis for personalized medicine.

St. Luke's Hospital is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians and is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Midwest Multistate Division, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
