These courses are intended for internal hospital staff.
The Tumor Board series consists of case presentations that are led by recognized multidisciplinary experts in the topic area. Multidisciplinary tumor boards bring together health care professionals from multiple specialties to strategize about the best treatments for gynecologic cancer cases. Please note that these tumor boards may only be accessed by qualified professionals directly associated with patient treatment. With the rapidly changing advances in the medical field, this is a forum that will provide clinical staff the opportunity to discuss and share new cutting-edge science, clinical, prognostic, biologic, Radiologic, and treatment information for all who attend. For example, the incorporation of palliative care in the management of advanced stage patients is now a standard ASCO recommendation that will aid in the ongoing review of oncology patients. Communication goals of therapy to patients is also a goal of modern cancer care, and this series will help providers in expressing these goals more clearly to their patients. This series will also aid in decreasing the need to refer to the needed specialties for curbside consults which causes significant lag time and added effort to get real-time advice.
