This symposium should be of interest to gynecologic oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and advanced practice providers in gynecologic oncology practices.
Agendas are subject to change because we are always striving to improve the quality of your educational experience. MD Anderson may substitute faculty with comparable expertise on rare occasions necessitated by illness, schedule conflicts and so forth.
Please let us know what specific topics, issues or questions you wish to see addressed or emphasized in this activity. Fax CME/Conference Management at 713-794-1724 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. All responses will be forwarded to the Program Chair for consideration.
This annual meeting of the Felix Rutledge Society will provide medical education for academic and community practice gynecologic oncologists. There have been significant advances in the care of women with gynecologic malignancies over the last year. In a busy practice, it can be difficult for providers to keep up with the new research and the more global changes in the landscape of medical practice. Additionally, novel research in education has identified improved methods for adult education. This meeting will review best practices and novel research in these areas. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of these topics and an ability to implement what they learned within their own practice. Further, attendees will have the opportunity to develop research collaborations within the Felix Rutledge Society.
After attending the conference, participants should be able to:
Incorporate latest research findings and apply to their clinical practice in terms of the role of surgery in minimally invasive cervical cancer and recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube and primary peritoneal cancer with a goal of maximizing patient survival and minimizing morbidity (Knowledge, Performance, Competence, Patient Outcomes);
Interpret side effects from immunotherapy and apply management strategies to ameliorate side effects of therapy (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes);
Illustrate ways in which patients can make changes to their lifestyle to improve their health. Illustrate strategies where learners can apply these changes to their own lives (Knowledge, Competence,
Performance, Patient Outcomes);
Demonstrate novel methods of medical education (ie. Flipped classroom) (Knowledge, Competence, Performance);
Incorporate new aspects of professionalism into individual and group practices (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes).
