Multidisciplinary CNS Metastasis Update 2021

October 9, 2021

This activity will present a multidisciplinary approach to the clinical management of CNS metastasis from various cancers, discuss available innovative clinical trial options, and provide the latest updates on current techniques in neurosurgical advancements in this arena. Using a disease-oriented multiple specialty approach along with panel discussions, the activity will offer a comprehensive update for providers from multiple disciplines. Physicians and other healthcare providers locally, regionally, and nationally will learn from specialists in the field about novel advances in the treatment and management of brain and spine metastasis from common cancers encountered in daily practice. This course is intended to encourage broader collaboration, increase patient base for clinical trials, and bring established providers up to date on the latest developments in the field. Participation is encouraged through question and answer opportunities throughout the program.
