This educational activity is based on case presentations and subsequent small group discussions of patients with hematologic malignancies that are being evaluated, treated and followed in the Department of Hematology and Oncology, and that have diagnostic or follow-up material evaluated in the Division of Hematopathology. The goal of this multimodality approach is to ensure that the best patient care is being delivered by both Hematologists/Oncologists and Pathologists.
Key Words: CME, MCW, Pathology, Clinical Pathology, Molecular Pathology, Hematologic Neoplasms, Hematologic Tests, Hematologic Diseases, Morphological and Microscopic Findings, Diagnostic Techniques and Procedures, Clinical Laboratory Techniques, Hemic and Immune Systems, Differential Diagnosis, Pathological Processes, Neoplastic Cell Transformation
Learning objectives are identified for Hematologists/Oncologists and Hematopathologists.
Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:
- Identify appropriate ordering of expensive, ancillary diagnostic testing
- Describe the salient morphologic, immunophenotypic, cytogenetic and molecular features of common hematologic malignancies
- Discuss emergent therapeutic options and availability of clinical trials, and how they apply to patients diagnosed in our service
- Utilize and constantly update themselves with the clinical practices of the Department of Hematology and Oncology, in order to continue to improve outcomes and provide optimal patient care
