2020 Virtual Innovations in Urologic Practice
Saturday, September 26, 2020
This conference focuses on innovative diagnostic and treatment strategies for some of the most common urologic problems, as well as current challenges faced by urologists, urologic oncologists, medical oncologists, and other healthcare providers who treat patients with urologic diseases and conditions. The rapidly changing healthcare environment and pace of technological innovations in medicine requires healthcare providers to keep abreast of state-of-the-art diagnosis and management of urologic disease.
The 2020 Innovations in Urologic Practice Virtual CME Symposium will provide a detailed review and commentary on multiple genitourinary and urologic diseases. Among the featured oncological topics are a description of bladder cancer and immunotherapies, as well as descriptions of upper tract cancer management and prostate cancer management, including discussions of state-of-the-art imaging, focal therapy, and MRI. Experts will also discuss new tools and techniques for nephrectomy and treating advanced renal cell carcinoma. In terms of general urological approaches, symposia sessions will educate attendees on pelvic reconstruction and trauma, men’s health topics like male infertility and sexual dysfunction, and ways to diagnose and treat infections in the urology patient.
This activity is designed for urologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, primary care specialists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and management of urologic diseases.
At the conclusion of the conference, participants should be able to:
- Diagnose and manage patients with renal stones
