September 29, 2018 DC1907: Liver Tumor Symposium: Challenges in Primary and Secondary Liver Cancer Management
Register   Details

In 2018, colorectal cancer (CRC) is estimated to affect 140,250 individuals in the United States and over one-half of these patients will develop liver metastases. Although surgical resection remains one of the major curative treatment options available to patients with colorectal liver metastases, it continues to be a controversial and evolving topic. As medical management and surgical techniques continue to advance in safety and efficacy, patients initially deemed unresectable can now be identified and have the potential to become resectable through preoperative treatment measures. In addition, given the extensive molecular and clinical heterogeneity of CRC, it is essential to individualize therapy on the basis of molecular profiling to avoid treatment-related toxicities without a recognized survival benefit.

Both primary liver cancer (HCC) and cholangiocarcinoma (CC) pose numerous clinical challenges. Over the last two years, the treatment landscape and biologic understanding of primary liver tumors has shifted dramatically with significant advancements in, loco-regional and systemic therapies rapidly being developed. Several large randomized phase III trials of novel treatments have resulted in new drug approvals and the increased knowledge of specific pathways implicated in tumor growth has shifted the focus of many clinical trials and treatments.

In light of these exciting new developments, this conference has been customized to provide the latest evidence based practice to health care professionals. Each session will address how expanding treatment choices and research studies will influence individual treatment plans and impact patient management in the future. Don’t miss out on this important and informative symposium.

November 2 - November 3, 2018 MJ1905: 11th Annual John D. Loeser Pain Conference: Strategies for Chronic Pain Management
Register   Details

The John D. Loeser Pain Conference provides cogent, evidence-based and useful information for primary care providers of all kinds. Chronic pain is a very common complaint, and many providers find treatment challenging with or without opioid prescribing. The lectures this year will address many aspects of pain care, including the complexities of chronic opioid use and weaning from opioids, followed by a panel discussion on this topic. There will also be didactics on related topics including neuropathic pain, joint pain, headaches, and back surgery which are commonly encountered by primary care providers in all settings.

Those who may benefit from this educational offering are primary care providers (PCPs) working in clinic settings where they manage and work with acute or chronic non-cancer pain patients. Other interested parties may include providers in rehabilitation medicine, occupational medicine, psychiatry, physical therapy, and trainees in all of the above fields. All presentations will be provided in a didactic format using Powerpoint slides to provide evidence-based, actionable information that can be used by the primary care provider without additional consultation of staffing. There will be question and answer sessions after each block of lectures. The syllabus will be available online (for conference registrants only).
