Target Audience and Needs

Pediatric oncologists, geneticists, molecular and anatomic pathologists, surgeons, genetic counselors, medical trainees, and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of pediatric patients with cancer need to be regularly updated with the recent advances and guidelines in the field of pediatric oncology. The tumor board aims to increase knowledge of the learners using a multidisciplinary case approach, and encourages learners to implement the advances and guidelines in clinical practice to enhance the quality of patient care and outcomes.


Educational Methods

Educational methods will include case presentations and panel discussion.


Objectives

At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:

  • Apply the results of tumor and germline molecular testing to the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of pediatric cancer.
  • Demonstrate the expanding role of molecular diagnostics in formulating pediatric precision-oncology treatment strategies.
  • Use a multidisciplinary approach in interpreting results of molecular diagnostics.
  • Appraise the molecular tests currently available in pediatric oncology and recognize the limitations and risks of using them.

Evaluation

Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
