Conference Brochure

10th Annual Multimodal Treatment of Spinal Tumors Course is organized by Seattle Science Foundation (SSF) and will be held on Apr 04, 2020 at Seattle Science Foundation, Seattle, Washington, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Intended Audience:
The sessions are targeted towards physicians, physician extenders, and nurses in practice and training, in the fields of internal medicine, family practice, palliative care, neurology, medical and radiation oncology, interventional and diagnostic radiology, pain management, physiatry, neurosurgery, and orthopedic surgery who are interested in advancing their understanding of primary and metastatic spinal tumors.

Course Description:
The 10th Annual Multimodal Treatment of Spinal Tumors Course focuses on the diagnosis and multidisciplinary management of patients with metastatic spine tumors. Experts in neurosurgery, radiation oncology, neuro-oncology, medical oncology, pain management, and radiology will explore the multimodal management of primary and metastatic spinal tumors.

Needs Statement:
Advances in surgical techniques and radiation delivery modalities have dramatically improved our ability to decrease local tumor recurrence rates, improve pain control, and provide more durable spinal stability. Modern day spine tumor resection and reconstruction techniques have been shown to improve and prolong patients' ability to ambulate, maintain continence, and reduce the need for pain medications. Spinal radiosurgery, the focused delivery of radiation to a target in the spine, has significantly enhanced the ability to provide a high degree of local tumor control in a non-invasive manner, even for tumors that are deemed radioresistant by conventional radiation therapy standards. In most patients, a combination of treatment modalities, including both surgery and radiation, is the mainstay of any comprehensive treatment plan for metastatic spinal tumors.

The literature suggest that providers not only need education, but collaboration in treatment modalities. Words that reappear in the literature suggesting the need for more collaborative education often include: combination, treatment modalities, surgery, comprehensive treatment, in conjunction, minimally invasive surgical techniques, nonsurgical modalities, cross-functional, maximization of treatment options. By optimizing care plans via the most up-to-date education, surgeons and other specialist can work together to create a better quality of life for their patients.

By attending this course, the participant will provide better patient care through an increased ability to: 

• Recommend the most recent diagnostic, surgical, and pathological advances in the evaluation of patients with metastatic spinal tumors
• Summarize standard and emerging treatments for patients with metastatic spinal tumors
• Describe multimodal management of spinal metastases, including surgery, radiation, and pain management
• Review the diagnosis and treatment of primary and metastatic spinal tumors
• Discuss the decision framework developed for the treatment of spinal tumors
• Summarize the radiology, radiation and medical oncology, surgery and pain management treatment options available for patients with spinal tumors.
