COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Hematologic malignancies have historically been at the vanguard among cancers in the use of genetic analyses for diagnosis, classification, prognostication, and therapeutic decision-making. A bone marrow transplant, also known as a stem cell transplant, is a treatment to replace unhealthy bone marrow with healthy stem cells that will make the bone marrow healthy again. During these case studies participants will optimize risk stratifications of patients with hematologic malignancies at diagnosis or disease recurrence, as well as patients who are being considered for bone marrow transplant.  

TARGET AUDIENCE:
Medical Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, General Surgeons, Pathologists, Radiologists, Pharmacists, Nurses, Social Workers, Radiologic Technologists, Patient Care Facilitators and all Personnel involved in the care of the hematology cancer patient.
 
EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES:

  • Analyze risk stratifications in patients with hematologic malignancies at diagnosis or disease recurrence and those being considered for bone marrow transplant.
  • Discuss clinical decisions and optimize timely referral of patients for potential stem cell transplants.
  • Develop comprehensive care plans of complex clinical management of patients.
