These courses are intended for internal hospital staff.
Given the rarity and heterogeneity of sarcoma cancers, there are limited treatment options for many patients and many treatments/drugs are given off label. Identifying targetable molecular alterations can open further treatment options for patients and potentially lead to better patient outcomes. However, it is important to take a multimodal approach and have detailed discussions regarding discordant pathology results such that the group can reach consensus on what treatment(s) to proceed with for optimal patient outcomes. It is also crucial that decisions and outcomes be tracked so that positive outcomes/results can be reproduced for future patients with similar disease characteristics. There are several journal articles and good clinical evidence supporting the benefits of multimodal tumor boards including data showing that molecular tumor boards for sarcoma specifically can improve patient outcomes.
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.
At the conclusion of this Regularly Scheduled Series, participants should be able to:
- Identify discordant, complex, or rare molecular and histopathological findings and describe how these findings may impact treatment approach.
- Review therapeutic agents and treatment strategies and incorporate these into management of sarcoma patients discussed, including on-label, new/emerging, clinical trial, and off-label options where clinically indicated.
- Improve communication and the collaborative performance of the multidisciplinary oncology care team in the management of sarcoma patients
