Global Cancer Academies from Aptitude Health are a series of virtual educational meetings and corresponding websites featuring renowned clinical experts. These disease-specific programs are designed to positively impact patient outcomes by promoting collaboration among clinicians from around the world.
Academy presentations focus on how emerging therapies and practical concepts are being adapted and implemented globally. Experts share treatment regimens and supportive care guidelines used by key clinical centers to improve outcomes. They also address potential barriers to adopting state-of-the-art, innovative approaches to patient care.
Each Global Academy website features a disease-specific resource library, as well as an “Ask the Expert” tool. This tool enables direct engagement with program chairs, so participants can receive insights and best-practice experience from the experts.
Disease-specific academies improve collaboration and communication among treating physicians and clinicians around the world.
