Current Concepts in Hematopathology is organized by Harvard Medical School (HMS) and will be held during May 19 - 20, 2018 at Folkman Auditorium at Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is Specialty Physicians who practice in Pathology. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Course Description :
This course will provide pathologists with a review of diagnostic issues encountered in everyday clinical hematopathology practice and present up-to-date diagnostic approaches utilizing the recently revised WHO Classification. Topics will include an in-depth discussion of microscopic evaluation of hematolymphoid disorders, as well as the appropriate use of a broad range of ancillary studies. The course will address common pitfalls in the morphologic interpretation and immunophenotyping of hematolymphoid proliferations and discuss how to use cytogenetics and molecular testing to inform the diagnosis, using evidence-based guidelines. Material will be presented in lecture format by leading experts in the field and will include interactive sessions consisting of case-based presentations that illustrate common diagnostic pitfalls and underscore points made during the lectures.
Learning Objectives :
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
• Recognize common hematopathologic entities using evidence-based diagnostic criteria
• Incorporate the revised WHO classification of myeloid and lymphoid neoplasms into their practice
• Correctly and cost-effectively use morphologic criteria and ancillary studies to diagnose a broad range of lymph node and bone marrow pathologies
• Distinguish hematologic malignancies from non-neoplastic mimics of malignancy
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
