Course Rationale and Goals

Multiple organizations have teamed up to bring new evidence-based guidelines for physicians to implement in tumor work ups. These guidelines may be frequently updated as more evidence becomes available; pathologists need to add these guidelines to their practice and understand the rationale behind their development.

New classification guidelines for rhabdomyosarcomas are available. Pathologists are provided up-to-date information about sensitivity and specificity of immunohistochemical staining for soft tissue tumors.

Making an early and accurate diagnosis of ILD is key to improving patient outcomes. This is a case-based approach to address knowledge and practice gaps in ILD presentations and diagnoses.

Format

This live CME activity combines lecture with opportunity for discussion during a half-day session.

This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

CME Accreditation

The Indiana Association of Pathologists (IAP) is accredited by the Indiana State Medical Association to provide continuing education to physicians. The IAP designates this activity for 3.0 AMA PRA Category 1TM credits. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with their participation in the activity.

The collaborator session is a live activity offered for 1.0 CME AMA PRA Category 1TM credit-- Jointly provided by PCME and Rockpointe. This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Building Bridges

Physicians who are not pathologists may recognize that the learning opportunity of this seminar may help close a practice gap of their own. Non-pathologist phycians are generally not eligible for membership with the IAP. However, we welcome these physicians and they may attend the meeting at the IAP member price.  Email iap@indianapath.org.

Note: While offering the CME credit hours listed in these pages, these activities are not intended to provide extensive training in a field.
