Synoptic Reporting Webinar: Pediatric Patients with Ewing Sarcoma (22-Mar-2017, 1pm EST, free registration requi

Presented by:

Dr. Dina El Demellawy, MD, PhD, FRCPC
Pediatric Pathologist, Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO)
Associate Professor, University of Ottawa and the University of Northern Ontario School of Medicine

Wednesday, March 22, 2017
1:00 – 2:30 p.m. EST (60 minutes presentation; 30 minutes Q & A)

Learning Objectives:

  1. To review the College of American Pathologists’ (CAP) protocols related to Ewing Sarcoma and its use by pathologists specializing in pediatric oncology.
  2. To understand changes in the latest revision of the CAP cancer protocols and electronic cancer checklists.

This webinar will provide expert advice for advancing pediatric oncology through optimal pathology investigation, moving toward standardized reporting, and incremental clarity of clinical implications.

Background:

As part of POGO’s long-range plan for childhood cancer in Ontario, a task force was initiated in 2012 to determine reporting protocols currently in use, to review/ generate/ approve reporting templates and conventions, and to recommend future practice in Ontario. The task force identified and endorsed the College of American Pathologists’ (CAP) Ewing Sarcoma protocol as the expert consensus-based approach to reporting and is recommending its adoption in Ontario. The task force is co-chaired by Dr. Joseph de Nanassy (Division Chief, Anatomical Pathology, Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario), Dr. Gino Somers (Head, Division of Pathology, Hospital for Sick Children) and Dr. David Malkin (POGO’s Medical Director from 2011-2016).
