Learn about Oncologic Emergencies on Webcast

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Learn about Oncologic Emergencies on Webcast. In the 70 years since Goodman and Gilman gave that first dose of nitrogen mustard chemotherapy, we have come a long, long way in oncologic treatment. Today, we can cure cancers that even 10 years ago were considered fatal. But cancers still make our patients incredibly ill and they still cause our patients to die. On this CME webcast, we’re going to discuss some of the emergencies that cancer creates in our patients, how to recognize them, and how to treat them. Joining Dr. Jim Allen, in the studio, we’re delighted to welcome today’s guests. First, we have Dr. Luca Delatore who is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine from the Ohio State University and is the Medical Director of the James Cancer Hospital Emergency Department. Second, we have Dr. Joseph Flynn. For the past 15 years, Dr. Flynn has been an Associate Professor of Internal Medicine in the OSU Division of Hematology and he has just been appointed as the Physician in Chief and Executive Director of Norton Cancer Institute at the Norton Health System in Kentucky.
