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).

WEBINAR: Learn about how you can use the “Cross-Cohort Harmonization Project for Tomorrow” by Maelstrom Research (Nov 29, 1pm EST, registration required)

 

The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer has teamed up with Maelstrom Research to develop innovative resources to facilitate collaborative epidemiological research at the international level.

Launched in 2015, the Cross-Cohort Harmonization Project for Tomorrow (CHPT) is a research network led by Maelstrom Research to leverage the use of a selected number of existing North American and European cohort studies focused on better understanding the risk factors that contribute to cancer and other major chronic diseases.  The CHPT initiative has brought together the data dictionaries of 13 large cohort studies, including the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project, the UK-Biobank, the Nurses’ Health Study, and the LifeLines Cohort Study and Biobank to create a pool of searchable metadata on over 2.5 million participants.

The Partnership and Maelstrom Research invite the research community to a webinar on November 29th at 1:00 PM EST to learn about Maelstrom Research’s open-source tools, the CHPT initiative, and how to make use of these resources to support current and future research in cancer and chronic diseases.
