The symposium will provide case based presentations focusing on common ICU problems in the areas of medical, surgical, neurologic, and cardiac critical care, as well as didactic lectures on advanced therapies. The case-based discussions will utilize an audience response system which will stimulate audience participation and interaction with the speakers. Two keynote talks will give a more global perspective on critical care practice today. Program topics have been selected based on query of past attendee suggestions, multispecialty critical care expertise input, recent guideline changes, and review of similar conferences nationally.

    The 3rd Annual Jefferson Lung Cancer Symposium 2015

    Friday, March 6, 2015

    Course Location:
    Bluemle Life Sciences Building
    Home of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University
    233 S. 10th Street
    Philadelphia, PA 19107

    In keeping with Jefferson's integrated approach to education and care, this Symposium is organized through the collaborative efforts of:

    Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Thomas Jefferson University,
    Jane and Leonard Korman Lung Center at Jefferson,
    and
    Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University.

    The 3rd Annual Jefferson Lung Cancer Symposium is specifically designed for specialists whose practice focuses on the screening, diagnosis, management, and treatment of lung cancer utilizing a multi-disciplinary approach.

    Lung cancer is ranked as the leading cause of cancer-related mortality both in the US and worldwide. However, there have been dramatic advances in our understanding of the benefits of careful screening of high-risk individuals, the molecular biology of lung cancer, novel targets of importance, and the development of targeted therapies. The Course Directors, led by Dr. Mani S. Kavuru, MD, Professor of Medicine, Director of the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, and Director of the Jane and Leonard Korman Lung Center at Jefferson, have developed a multidisciplinary program, offering participants a unique opportunity to witness experts in the fields of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Surgery, and Oncology as they review the most current literature supporting how they manage and treat patients diagnosed with this disease.

    Participants will examine case presentations from multiple perspectives, and gain in-depth understanding to how experienced healthcare providers approach difficult patient care decisions. The program will also emphasize updated approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer and will reinforce best practices through lively interactive case-based presentations, providing the opportunity for in-depth discussions on how the information presented at the conference can impact participant competency and their patient care processes, and allowing for a significant opportunity for audience members to interact with program faculty and discussants.

    Attendees will participate in a "mock tumor board" and a pro-con debate as a multi-disciplinary panel interacts. Experts in the fields of Surgery, Oncology, and Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine will review and analyze cases drawn from practice and develop management strategies to optimize patient care.

    The Inaugural Pulmonary Update Conference: Practical Topics for the Primary Care Provider will present both common pulmonary problems confronting the primary care provider as well as emerging areas that these providers need to be aware of. Educational sessions during the conference will address the knowledge and performance gaps of the target audience in the complex areas of screening and diagnosis of pulmonary disease, providing expert guidance for the management of abnormal testing results. Specific attention will be paid to the appropriate approaches to vexing cough syndrome, community acquired pneumonia and cryptic dyspnea and its role in vascular disease. The conference features a keynote address on sleep disorders by Dr. Naresh Punjabi, Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at Johns Hopkins. A key feature of the conference lies in the round table discussion, which will provide the opportunity for in depth discussions on how the information presented at the conference can impact participant competency and their patient care processes.
