Summary:

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. While a majority of patients are diagnosed before their disease has metastasized, a fifth of patients have advanced disease at the time of diagnosis. Early detection and screening have been shown to significantly reduce CRC mortality, and screening is widely recommended for average-risk adults beginning at age 50 years, (as well as earlier for individuals at higher risk). Since the mid-1990s, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, American Cancer Society, and other groups have recommended several modalities for screening: fecal occult blood testing (FOBT), flexible sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, and barium enema. Recent years have seen the addition of newer screening technologies, including stool DNA, computed tomographic colonography, and capsule endoscopy.

By the end of the session the participant will be able to:

  • Describe present the current practice guideline recommendations with respect to colorectal cancer screening, including colonoscopy preparation, and apply them to patient cases
  • Identify the treatment modalities currently available for management of mCRC and apply them to patient cases using evidence-based medicine
  • Evaluate a treatment plan for a specific patient with mCRC to optimize safety, efficacy, and tolerability, suggesting modifications for improvement
  • Describe the challenges and barriers to care associated with treating patients with mCRC

Summary:

This comprehensive course is developed to update your clinical knowledge foundation as well as to help you pass your Pathology AP and/or CP exams (certifying or MOC). Emphasis is on fact-based practice and board-relevant standards of care, integrating new concepts and testing strategies in addition to quality control and laboratory management skills. Numerous previous participants found the course offered them with enhanced diagnostic and evaluation skills and helped them recognize weaknesses for further self-study. The program includes didactic lectures with review questions at the conclusion of each topic, esyllabus (containing all PowerPoint® presentations), and designated Q&A sessions covering Blood Bank procedures and Clinical Chemistry. Sunday through Wednesday discussions cover Anatomical Pathology Topics. Wednesday through Saturday discussions cover Clinical Pathology Topics. Wednesday is an overlap day and consists of both Anatomic in additin to Clinical Pathology topics scattered throughout the day.

The Pathology Course also offers an optional day of glass-slide review before and after the seven-day lecture seminar. There are seven sets of twenty-five slides to explore self-study style which are the same for both lab days. The Saturday slide lab before to the course opens at 1:00 pm and closes at 8:00 pm. The Sunday slide lab, which is the Sunday following the lecture presentation is open from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm. If you choose not to attend one of the extra slide lab days you can still rent a microscope to use during the lecture course. The hours of the microscope room are 7:00 am to 11:00 pm and the hours of slide check out are 9:00 am to 8:00 pm. A Clinical Photo room with question and answer pack is available throughout the course.
