Continuing Medical Education (CME)
Date: 29th August 2019 | Venue: Panafric Hotel
We took a well-deserved break in July 2019 and came back in August for a mixed presentation on CML and osteogenic sarcoma from Prof Nicholas Abinya Medical Oncologist and Dr Mohammed Ezzi Medical Oncologist. The outcome for patients with CML has significantly improved with TKI therapies, yet challenges persist in adequate monitoring which is expensive. The lack of co-ordinated multidisciplinary care needed for osteogenic sarcoma led to many lost to follow up and incomplete treatments with poor outcomes. MDTs prior to treatment is a potential strategy for reversing this trend.
