Apr 12, 2019 8:30 AM

This course aims to improve patient care and outcomes through evidence-based discussion of clinical practice guidelines and emerging therapies in order to assess and update current practices to promote earlier diagnosis and treatment of pituitary diseases. The multidisciplinary nature of the course will allow for dissemination of knowledge across the variety of practitioners caring for pituitary patients, and for the patients themselves.

After completion of this didactic and case-based educational activity, participants will be up to date on the latest developments in ongoing basic and translational science as well as the clinical management of patients with pituitary conditions. Participants will be able to review available and emerging medical therapies for Cushing’s and acromegaly, discuss new therapies for aggressive and malignant tumors, understand decision making involved in surgical intervention for pituitary tumors, get an overview on potential surgical complications, describe the role of radiation therapy for pituitary tumors,  review neuro-ophthalmological findings in pituitary disease risks, discuss treatment of immunotherapy-related pituitary dysfunction, and assess advances in neuroimaging and tumor markers that may predict tumor behavior and clinical outcomes.

This course is intended for endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, radiation oncologists, neurologists, ophthalmologists, neuro-oncologists, family medicine and internal medicine physicians, physicians in training and other allied health professionals who treat and manage patients with pituitary diseases.
