BEST OF MASCC Meetings

A Best of MASCC Meeting is a MASCC-endorsed conference held in a region or continent other than that of the Annual Meeting and comprising selected Annual Meeting presentations. The goal of the Best of MASCC program is to disseminate the most recent advances and guidelines in supportive care in cancer to healthcare professionals on a local level, who are unable to attend the Annual Meeting. Holding a Best of MASCC Meeting requires formal application and approval by the MASCC Executive Committee. Criteria include that all speakers be MASCC members, that the content address supportive cancer care topics, and that the meeting be appropriate for a multidisciplinary audience. For criteria and application, see Best of MASCC Policy and Application.
