6th Annual Tulane Symposium on Thyroid & Parathyroid Diseases

  1. 1. 6th Annual Tulane Symposium on Thyroid and Parathyroid Diseases Hyatt French Quarter • February 1 – 2, 2014 Optional Post Sympoium • February 2 & 3, 2014 Tulane has a long history of successful continuing medical education programs and we believe that this program on thyroid and parathyroid diseases will continue this paradigm. We have had a very successful symposium for the last few years. This year, for our sixth annual symposium, the course will offer updates and new insights into a range of topics that cover thyroid and parathyroid diseases and a great hands-on experience. Our symposium will feature world-renowned faculty from Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Cleveland Clinic, and University of Pittsburgh and will also feature Professor Miccoli’s team in Italy performing a video-assisted thyroidectomy, which he pioneered. The course will feature outstanding lectures, as well as • Hands-on ultrasound session • Hands-on fine needle aspiration biopsies with phantoms • Live case observation of robotic thyroidectomy (part of optional post-symposium sessions) • Hands-on Thyroid Cadaver Lab (part of optional post-symposium sessions) • Hands-on Adrenal Cadaver Lab (part of optional post-symposium sessions) I hope that you can join us in New Orleans!

  4. 4. General Program Information Overview This program is designed to increase participant knowledge, competence and performance in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid and parathyroid cancers in order to improve patient diagnosis and management of care. Featuring discussions and debates with experts and a hands-on experience in the surgical laboratory and ultrasound lab, the overall goal of the conference is to impact the diagnostic and selection processes of patients with endocrine tumors and improve surgical outcomes. Statement of Need Thyroid cancers are on the rise in the United States, especially among women. At the same time, mortality rates from early and effective treatment have been decreasing since the 1950s. Today’s patient with thyroid cancer or parathyroid cancer is offered multiple options. The options of minimally invasivesurgery, both video-assisted and robotic, hold great appeal because of their improved cosmetic result, less pain and decreased post-operative recovery time. Goal The overall goal of the symposium is to impact the diagnostic and selection processes of patients with endocrine tumors, improve surgical outcomes and provide counseling and support for the patient who is facing surgery and post-surgical management. Target Audience This course is designed for Surgeons, Endocrinologists, Otolaryngologists, and Radiologists as well as Internists, and Family Physicians, both in training and in practice. Competencies This CME activity address components of the competencies identified by the American Board of Medical Specialties (Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Systems-Based Practice), as well as the competencies identified by the Institute of Medicine (Provide patient-centered care, Work in interdisciplinary teams, Employ evidence-based practice, Apply quality improvement and Utilize informatics). CME Information Learner Objectives At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to … • Determine the appropriate diagnosis and management protocol in the treatment of thyroid nodules. • Demonstrate minimally invasive thyroid and parathyroid procedures in a wet lab using different video-assisted surgery approaches. • Describe treatment approaches and guidelines for hyperparathyrodism, medullary thyroid cancer, and Grave’s disease. • Discuss preoperative and post-operative evaluation protocols for thyroid carcinoma. • Compare the various treatment options for parathyroid and thyroid diseases. Predicted Outcomes Predicted changes in practice as a result of participating in this activity may include the ability to: • Develop a strategy for determining which patients are candidates for surgery versus medical management. • Incorporate the most recent clinical guidelines for thyroid and parathyroid diseases in to my practice. • Increase my competence in analyzing imaging data. • Develop a plan to better educate my patients on the possible health alternatives they have with thyroid or parathyroid disease. • Develop a checklist to weigh the case parameters which determine efficacy of MIVAT, robotic or conventional surgery.
