OVERVIEW

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology professionals are given the rare opportunity to view the oncology space, its future and its current operational issues from the provider and payer perspective. Participants will improve their working knowledge of key business, policy, coverage, reimbursement, informational, and operational issues in oncology and will gather valuable insights material to developing effective strategies for navigating the various constituencies in cancer care. Through this interactive program, pharmaceutical and biotech professionals will learn from key stakeholders what they view to be the most pressing issues in oncology today and how to apply this knowledge to create mutually-successful working relationships.

Professionals from marketing, sales, medical affairs, clinical research, policy and government affairs, and other business areas will better be able to serve their customers with improved knowledge of real-world oncology issues after completion of this program.
