OPT 343: Testicular Cancer: Beyond Surgery Barbara H. Zoltick, MSN, CRNP Although uncommon compared to other cancers, testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men between the ages of 15 and 35. Urology nurses are familiar with the surgical management of testicular cancer, however, they may not be familiar with the complex medical management, treatment options and lifelong fol- low-up required for men diagnosed with this highly curable malignancy. The information will enable the urology practitioner to better under- stand the health and psychosocial issues of men before, during and after treatment, includ- ing treatment options, acute and late side ef- fects, surveillance recurrence and late effects.

Formulating a comprehensive approach to support both patients and their family re- quires a team effort. Case studies will be pre- sented. APN 334: Dermatological Manifestations of Urologic Diseases Ajay Nehra, MD Dermatologic manifestations of urologic diseases reflect a variety of conditions that range from benign diseases to malignant tu- mors. Color slides will help enhance identifica- tion of these lesions and help optimize care and treatment of these patients. The importance of the correct steps in the evaluation process will be stressed. A discussion of evidence-based treatment algorithms will round out this session for advanced practice providers. 12:15 pm – 1:15 pm Concurrent Sessions EOC/OFC 341: Let There Be Light: Laser Safety and the Urology Nurse Darla Cleaves, CURN, CNOR, CRNFA, MLSO New A.N.S.I.

  12. 12. To further its commitment to excellence in urologic clinical practice and research, the Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates formed the SUNA Foundation. The Foundation funds research projects related to urologic disease or treatment and awards scholarships for advanced education or specialized training for SUNA members. As SUNA members explore new research ideas, further their nursing education, and advance urologic care and treatment, patients will ultimately benefit from this expanded knowledge and expertise. Support for the Foundation comes from corporations, SUNA chapters and members, and those interested in urologic health care. The Foundation is pleased to offer the seventh fundraising Silent Auction at this Annual Conference. You can help by donating items for the auction and by coming to the conference pre- pared to bid.

The Society of Urologic Nurses and Associates (SUNA) is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses’ Creden- tialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. The SUNA accreditation is reciprocal in the states and specialty organizations that recognize the ANCC accreditation process. SUNA is also a provider approved by the California Board of Regis- tered Nursing, Provider Number CEP 5556. Accred- itation and approved provider status of CE in nursing does not imply ANCC approval or endorsement of any product, advertising, or educational content. SUNA urges all participants to be aware of the CE requirements for re-licensure in the states in which they hold a license. CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION (CME) CREDIT This program is not yet approved for CME credit. Conference organizers plan to request at least 20 hours of AAPA Category I CME credit from the Physician Assistant Review Panel including the pre- conference sessions. PHARMACOLOGY CREDIT At least 4.5 hours of pharmacology credit will be awarded. Total number of approved credits is yet to be determined. CALL FOR SESSION MODERATORS Your help is needed to assist with speaker sup- port during the educational sessions. As a session moderator, you will introduce the speaker from the podium, handle A/V equipment for the speaker, and keep the session on time. To volunteer, mark your conference registration form or contact the SUNA National Office at 1-888-TAP-SUNA. CORPORATE SPONSORED SESSIONS Some states have enacted strict compliance and disclosure requirements for pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers and healthcare professionals. If your state does not permit spon- sors to provide meals during educational sessions, you may attend the session, but you will not be permitted to partake of the meal.
