The Fredric G. Levin Lung Cancer Symposium is organized by Harvard Medical School (HMS) and will be held from Apr 02 - 03, 2020 at Sanders Beach-Corinne Jones Resource Center, Pensacola, Florida, United States of America. Target Audience: This course is targeted to Primary Care Physicians, Specialty Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants . This course may also be of interest to physicians who practice in emergency medicine, internal medicine, nuclear medicine, oncology and hematology, pathology, pulmonary medicine, radiology, surgery, and thoracic surgery. Accreditation: Physicians: The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 12.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Nurse Practitioners and Registered Nurses: This activity is approved for 12.25 contact hours, of which 1.50 are eligible for pharmacology credit. Program Overview: The dynamics of lung cancer treatment are changing as our understanding of the unique biology of the disease improves. Despite the establishment of evidence-based guidelines, significant variation exists in the management of lung nodules. A recent study demonstrated that up to 44.7% of patients received care inconsistent with guidelines, resulting in both over-evaluation and under-evaluation. Our course will outline the National Comprehensive Cancer Network’s (NCCN) accepted guidelines, and highlight updates to staging, treatment and indications for neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapy. In addition to providing vital updates in perioperative care, the course will also offer general topical lectures regarding the role of immunotherapy in treating lung cancer patients, and will supplement didactic material with hands-on sessions to support and improve attendees’ technical skills. Learning Objectives Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: • Review the guidelines established by the Fleischner Society and American College of Chest Physicians regarding the evaluation and management of pulmonary nodules • Identify the spectrum of radiologic appearance of pulmonary nodules and the range of differential diagnoses that may guide the choice of imaging • Analyze the current role of strategies for lung cancer diagnosis and staging • Evaluate the advantages and limitations of limited resection for early stage lung cancer • Determine the various approaches to minimally invasive pulmonary resection • Analyze the technical challenges and results of extended pulmonary resection • Assess the current role of stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) in the management of early stage non–small cell lung cancer • Utilize state-of-the-art tools to diagnose and stage lung cancer • Demonstrate the use of new treatment technologies • Review new research related to pulmonary nodules and lung cancer

Tips on how to efficiently and predictably capture perfect impressions and eliminate remakes will be offered. A cementation protocol will be put forward to assist the practitioner in obtaining the retention wanted on fixed restorations of feldspathic porcelain, lithium disilicate, and zirconia. And finally, some real world practice management ideas will be introduced that can make a difference with handling broken appointments and staff issues. Objectives: • The steps involved in creating the perfect posterior and anterior restorations • A simple process to mass produce anterior composites • What it takes to prepare, impress, and cement or bond a fixed prosthesis • Practice management ideas on how to deal with some of the most stressful aspects of running a small business Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
