Using Evolve Medical Education's KOL KnockoutTM format, this virtual symposium focuses on the challenges of managing pain in patients with cancer. Key opinion leaders (KOLs) are challenged by the host to diagnose and manage patient scenarios with varying levels of difficulty. After each case presentation, learners vote for the KOL they think answered best, and the moderator declares a match winner at the conclusion. There will be learning, laughter, and only one KOL left standing! *Voting took place during the live symposium.
