This course is intended for endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, otolaryngologists, radiation oncologists, neurologists, ophthalmologists, neuro-oncologists, family medicine and internal medicine physicians, physicians in training and other allied health professionals who treat and manage patients with pituitary diseases. We also invite patients with pituitary disease and their caregivers to attend this educational activity and participate in our interactive afternoon breakout sessions.
Overall this course aims to improve patient care and outcomes through evidence-based discussion of clinical practice guidelines and emerging therapies. Our goal is to assess and update current practices to promote earlier diagnosis and treatment of pituitary diseases. The multidisciplinary nature of the course will allow for the dissemination of knowledge across the variety of practitioners caring for pituitary patients, and for the patients themselves.
Pituitary patients will be able to review treatment options, learn about ongoing clinical trials, and discuss their comprehensive care with providers and other patients. The educational objective of this patient session is to provide a forum for pituitary patients to discuss treatment options and new therapies with providers and other patients.
Patients with pituitary disease and their caregivers are invited to attend this educational activity FREE of charge. If you are a patient or caregiver interested in attending, please email [email protected] to register (registration is required in order to attend).
Medical Professionals who wish to attend must register online: mskcc.org/PituitaryCourse. PLEASE NOTE: Early registration ends March 27, 2020.
