Program Description: 

Pituitary Case Conference:  A collaboration among Endocrinology, Radiology, Pathology and Neurosurgery to discuss patients with sellar masses in more detail. This conference deals with post operative care, pathology reviews, pre-operative evaluation planning and follow up scheduling and planning.

 

Key Words: Pituitary, Endocrinology, Radiology, Pathology, Neurosurgery

 
Target audience: 
  • Physicians
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Physician Assistants
  • Nurses
Learning objectives: 
Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:
  • Streamline care for patients with operative pituitary neoplasms: this will be done by allowing an open dialogue between endocrine and neurosurgery to address needs and work up needed pre-operatively and post operative for pituitary patients. The hope is that as we continue with this conference the routine will no longer need to be presented and we can focus on more outlier patients
  • open format for “zebra’ patients: patients with unique pathology are often only seen at academic medical centers and we would be able to discuss and present to medical learners how to work through these cases to best serve the patient
  • Discuss pathology: Pitutary neoplasms have different pathology markers which can change how patients are cared for. By having a formal time for us to discuss the details of pathology, we can to best understand moving forward what tests to order.
