Quillan Huang, MD
Target Audience and Needs
Medical oncologists, hematologists, geneticists, and other healthcare professionals who treat patients with cancer need to receive regular updates on recent advances in tumor sequencing, identification of actionable mutations, and targeted treatments of tumor pathways. The tumor board aims to bridge the current practice gap between the tumor sequencing information currently available to clinicians and the potential for on-label or off-label targeted therapies especially through clinical trial referrals. The goal of the tumor board is to advance the knowledge of learners regarding the application and interpretation of next-generation sequencing results ultimately to improve oncology patient care.
Educational methods will include lectures, case presentations, literature review, and panel discussion.
At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:
- Interpret molecular pathology reports and identify recommended guideline-supported therapy.
- Assess the literature for promising off-label therapies or clinical trial avenues.
- Recognize the strengths and limitations of different facets of molecular testing in oncology (e.g., liquid vs. solid biopsies, RNA-based vs. DNA-based testing).
Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
