Back to Molecular Testing for Colorectal Cancer: The Importance of Staff and Patient Education, Policies, and Procedures
During this 1-hour case based, online course, 4 multidisciplinary faculty will lead an interactive tumor board and share their perspectives on molecular testing in colorectal cancer (CRC). You'll learn about the significance of educating staff and patients on the importance of molecular testing in CRC, as well as how to develop appropriate testing policies and procedures. The program will begin with patient presentation, with questions and discussion at key points concerning testing, diagnosis, and treatment. The first case will address KRAS, extended KRAS, and BRAF testing, and the second case will address Lynch syndrome and MSI/MSI high testing. The new CRC guidelines will be addressed throughout the presentation as appropriate, and attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a live question and answer session at the end of the presentation.
