Our Story

Learners asked, and we listened

In 2013, The Oncologist launched the Conference Perspectives series of in-depth reporting from major oncology conferences. In 2017, the Society for Translational Oncology (STO) surveyed more than 34,000 clinicians to ask what additional features would best support their evidence-based oncology practice.

In total, 65% requested even more conference news analysis from expert faculty, and 56% asked for patient cases to illustrate conference take-home messages. Further, 66% expressed an interest in obtaining CME credit by engaging in online patient cases.

Conference Perspectives: Lessons Learned is the new CME-certified companion to Conference Perspectives. In Lessons Learned, leading faculty provide case-based guidance for applying new research findings to oncology patient care.
