C5 - What Do I Do Now?: Neurologic Consultations in Cancer Patients I

Event Time: Saturday May 4, 2019 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): Neuro-oncology
Director(s): Jaishri Blakeley MD
Description: Neuro-oncology faculty present high-yield concepts critical for the management of people with medical complications in the setting of primary brain tumor diagnoses and general neurology complications in the setting of systemic cancers. Using the audience response system and case-based presentations to complement didactic lectures, faculty will consolidate several key teaching points for problems such as stroke in a cancer patient, acute mental status changes in transplant recipients, management of systemic complications of drugs used for primary brain tumors and neurologic problems of cancer survivors such as "chemobrain," secondary neoplasms, and infections in an interactive manner. Some cases will address the evolving role of palliative care consultation in the management of these patients. This program complements What Do I Do Now?: Neurologic Consultations in Cancer Patients II, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be aware of the evidence available to guide management of neurologic complications of systemic cancers. They will also recognize systemic toxicities of brain cancer therapy, the neurologic toxicities of drugs used in transplantation, efficiently evaluate patients for CNS infections, and screen for neurologic treatment sequelae in long-term cancer survivors.
