Live Simulcast Available
We are pleased to offer a live simulcast for day one only. CME credit is offered for the live simulcast and pre-registration is required

This symposium will focus on the neuroscientific mechanisms of acupuncture for pain and symptom management and its application in cancer care.

On the first day, we will connect neuroscience and basic research with clinical evidence for oncology acupuncture symptom management. Our international panelists will also present the progress and challenges of providing acupuncture services in the oncology setting.

On the second day (half-day), we will focus on implementation by opening with a multidisciplinary discussion on integration of acupuncture for symptom management, followed by breakout workshops in the areas of designing and conducting high quality acupuncture clinical trials in
oncology, building clinical oncology acupuncture programs, training oncology acupuncturists, and implementing acupressure interventions for oncology patients.

We will conclude by formulating an action plan for moving forward. Course details and registration: mskcc.org/oncologyacupuncture
