2017 Caring for Kids With Cancer Symposium

Miami, FL US
December 8, 2017 to December 9, 2017

This day-and-a-half symposium will highlight a spectrum of new developments and innovative advances in current pediatric oncology practice. The faculty — including leading experts from the top local and national cancer care institutions — will review the latest technologies and therapeutic approaches to challenging clinical problems, and will focus on evidence-based approaches to the special physical, emotional and psychological needs of pediatric cancer patients and their families.

Working in partnership to provide the best possible care for the communities they serve, two local leaders in healthcare – Miami Cancer Institute, part of Baptist Health South Florida, the area's largest, not-for-profit healthcare provider, and nonprofit Nicklaus Children's Hospital, part of Miami Children's Health System and the leading provider of children's healthcare services in South Florida – are collaborating to improve healthcare through continuing education.
