Musculoskeletal oncology is constantly evolving with varied treatment techniques applicable to many subspecialties. The providers, while focusing on their specialty, must also be aware of new and evolving technologies and treatment techniques in subspecialties other than their own. The conference is intended to enhance the overall fund of knowledge required for these providers to treat patients in all subspecialties and to inform their colleagues on the availability and quality delivery of these technologies. With such emerging technologies, treatment techniques and clinical research trials, it is imperative that providers are aware of the best options for the patients they may encounter.

This CE will address the gaps in these treatments, protocols and technologies to ensure the resources that are available to all providers is recognized to optimally collaborate care for each patient.

Course Objectives:

  • Recognize and understand the importance of the multidisciplinary approach to the care of musculoskeletal oncology patients.
  • Provide updates on the current clinical practice in musculoskeletal oncology.
  • Provide updates on clinical trials in musculoskeletal oncology.
  • Acquire an awareness and understanding of the minimally invasive options for patients with metastatic bone disease.
  • Assess emerging data and technical information regarding changes and progress in the management of major forms of musculoskeletal oncology.
  • Assess the significance of new musculoskeletal oncology approaches and technologies for the treatment of various patients.
