Tumor Board Presentation of MDS and AML
Faculty will identify a clinical case in which MDS transforms into AML and will lead a discussion on the case using a tumor board format. After the case discussion, faculty will review optimal diagnostic and treatment choices.
Participants will rotate through four 30-minute breakout sessions on the following topics:
|30 minutes||Lunch (featuring The Patient Voice)
To incorporate the patient/caregiver perspective, during lunch participants will hear from an MDS and/or AML patient. The patient video will share stories to create the framework and context on issues that are most important to them (e.g., educational needs and psychosocial challenges).
|1 hour||Practice-Based Learning
Participants will be assigned to small workgroups. Each group will work as a team in the time allotted to discuss clinical evaluation, testing needed to narrow the differential diagnosis, bone marrow specimens, and treatment plans as applicable to their role in the diagnosis, evaluation, and management of patients with AML.
|1 hour||Workgroup Presentations and Q&A
Each workgroup will present its patient care plan to the audience for feedback and discussion. Faculty will assess and evaluate each group’s presentation.
|15 minutes||Learners Discuss Key Takeaways and Develop Action PlansParticipants will revisit the key challenges identified at the beginning of the program, discuss what they have learned, and develop an action plan for incorporating the new knowledge and competence into practice.|
