Improve patient satisfaction through efficient use of anatomic pathology.

Registration Details

Registration is not required.

Description

At the conclusion of the activity, learners will be able to:

1)    understand the anatomic pathology process and be able to explain it in layman's terms to patients

2)    know how to use FNA as a tool for diagnosis/triage of superficial tumors, and how to make high quality smears in the office

3)    explain how immunohistochemistry can identify Lynch Syndrome probands

Professional practice gap to be addressed: 1) Anatomic pathology exposure has been largely phased out from undergraduate and post-graduate medical training, and this has left a void of understanding in how best to utilize anatomic pathology services; 2) Pathologists may be consulted to perform superficial FNA biopsies; 3) Mismatch repair protein (MMR) defects are responsible for Lynch Syndrome cancers.

Overall goal of presentation: Improve patient satisfaction through efficient use of anatomic pathology.

Target audience: Physicians, mid-level providers, nurses
