ACCC Precision Medicine: Transforming Complex to Clear
Home / Learn / Precision Medicine

Precision Medicine

Precision medicine delivers personalized cancer care based on an individual’s genomics, lifestyle, and environment. Precision medicine implements the use of biomarkers, molecular testing, and targeted therapies to tailor treatment plans that address the unique needs of every patient.

Helping to bring personalized cancer care into focus, ACCC transforms complex science into clear and actionable education that brings clarity to patient care decisions. From essential knowledge on cancer screening updates to clinically impactful biomarker testing and new cancer diagnostic assay development, the ACCC Precision Medicine Library has fundamental resources that match the professional needs and preferred learning styles of the multidisciplinary cancer team.

On-Demand Webinars

  • This webinar will review how the steps in the life cycle of a patient specimen can affect its molecular integrity and molecular analysis results. Our expert speaker will define the roles of stewardship across the specimen chain of custody, discuss common factors that compromise specimen fitness for molecular testing, and describe solutions to improve preanalytics and tissue stewardship.

  • Two thought leaders who have deep knowledge of—and experience in—biomarker testing in patients with hematologic malignancies will discuss best practices for biomarker testing in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and multiple myeloma based on patient case discussions and the latest guidelines.

  • Bispecific antibodies are an emerging class of novel immunotherapy agents that have led to major breakthroughs in treating hematologic malignancies—and have promising applications for solid tumors.

  • This webinar will help participants better understand the role of laboratory medicine professionals and pathologists in biomarker testing and incorporate a review of testing techniques and applications, lab-specific regulations, and the impact of those regulations on biomarker testing.

  • Learn about open opportunities to participate in an ACCC-supported QI project, then see how ACCC's online self-assessment tools can help identify areas of improvement at your program or practice.
