Pathology Perspectives: Establishing the Role of Predictive Markers and Testing Strategies in AML Management

Pathology Perspectives: Establishing the Role of Predictive Markers and Testing Strategies in AML Management


March 18, 2019
Breakfast & Registration: 5:45 AM – 6:00 AM
Program: 6:00 AM – 7:45 AM

Gaylord Resort
201 Waterfront St
National Harbor, MD 20745

Activity Overview

This live symposium will bring together a panel of pathologists with an oncologist to discuss the ever-advancing role of molecular techniques in diagnosing and managing acute myeloid leukemia (AML). This activity will address multiple topics in one of the key components of multidisciplinary management of AML- optimizing pathology testing and incorporating that information to guide therapeutic choices. Topics for discussion will include the full spectrum of AML management from the perspective of pathologists and oncologists, from prognostic indicators and the role of molecular pathology in diagnosis to the use of molecular testing during and following each stage of treatment. What to test for and which techniques should be used, as well as which patient samples from bone marrow to lymph tissue to peripheral blood samples are appropriate at different testing stages will be discussed. The satellite will also include a panel discussion designed to help you integrate the latest advances in diagnosis and management of AML into clinical context for the care of your patients.

Benefits of attending:

Identify the key advances in pathology techniques and testing to guide care for your patients with AML.

Gain expert perspective on the latest consensus guidelines for testing and treatment of AML and how to incorporate them into patient care.

An interactive discussion will emphasize the roles of the pathologist and the oncologist in identifying mutations, assessing MRD during treatment, and using pathology results to guide treatment throughout the course of AML.

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward pathologists and medical oncologists who treat patients with AML.

Nurses, Nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other healthcare professions (HCPs) involved in the treatment and management of hematologic malignancies, specifically AML, will also be invited to participate in the activity.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this activity, you should be better prepared to:

  • Identify current best practices in the molecular, karyotypic, mutational analysis of AML in collaboration with pathology colleagues to inform treatment approaches
  • Outline current recommendations in AML as described by the ASH-CAP guidelines
  • Evaluate multidisciplinary strategies to facilitate AML diagnosis and ensure all prognostic and predictive features of these tumors are incorporated into clinical decision-making
