C190 - Neuro-oncologic Predicaments in the Hospital Setting

Event Time: Thursday April 26, 2018 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Neuro-oncology, Neurohospitalist
Director(s): Na Tosha Gatson MD, PhD
Description: Emergent issues in neuro-oncology are variable and require timely recognition of their level of acuity. Delays in management and transitions in care could lead to costly outcomes that impact hospital stay as well as patient neurologic function and rehabilitation. This course is formatted as a combination of cases and didactic learning with audience participation to cover relevant acute inpatient issues in neuro-oncology. Topics covered will address the following clinical presentations: increased intracranial pressure, salt-balance, autonomic dysregulation, immunosuppression, cancer treatment effects, stroke, seizure, and acute decline in mental status. Each topic will have a representative case presented, followed by a didactic approach to working through a three-tiered differential, and finish with an evidence-based discussion of management and identification of areas for quality improvement.
Completion Message: Participants should be familiar with the differential diagnoses and inpatient management of common and uncommon neuro-oncologic clinical presentations in adults, and identify areas for process improvement in these conditions.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Systems-Based Practice
