First annual Canadian Cardiac Oncology Network conference

S.F. Dent, N.A. Graham

Abstract


The inaugural Canadian Cardiac Oncology Network conference was held at the Ottawa Convention Centre, Ottawa, Ontario, May 13, 2011. The learning objectives of the meeting were to
  • understand and appreciate the importance of cardiac toxicity in the treatment of cancer patients.
  • review current guidelines, recommendations, and ways to prevent and treat cardiac toxicity in cancer patients.
  • develop potential research initiatives and collaboration across Canada.
Although the cardiac toxicities associated with conventional systemic therapy agents are well established, the short- and long-term cardiac toxicities associated with targeted agents are less understood. In addition, the effects of exposing patients to multiple targeted therapies, and potentially compounding multiple cardiac toxicities, are unknown. This meeting report includes highlights from presentations at the conference?
