The innovative peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma curriculum developed by ASCP also includes online multimedia cases that live and virtual educational session participants can access prior to the session for a convenient, flexible way to further their knowledge in order to improve patient outcomes.
The peripheral T-cell Lymphoma Multimedia Case Studies challenge participants to apply new information in realistic patient scenarios. Case studies focus on appropriately diagnosing and classifying patients with various types of peripheral T-cell Lymphoma (PTCL), as well as communicating information with the health care team. Participants review four interactive case studies featuring knowledge checks, image reviews and podcast discussions between hematologists and clinicians expanding on each case. In addition, participants are eligible to earn up to 2 CME or Self-Assessment Module (SAMs CME) credits and meet requirements for the American Board of Pathology’s (ABP) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part III Cognitive Expertise requirements.
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate accurate PTCL classification/subclassification that reflects expert guidance and takes into account common overlapping or overlooked features.
- Describe new developments that may affect approaches to or outcomes of the PTCL classification process.
- Identify potential barriers to accurate peripheral T‐cell lymphoma diagnosis that can arise from inadequate acquisition or handling of specimens or insufficient communication between disciplines.
- Identify mechanisms and practices within the health care system that can help to minimize suboptimal specimen management and interdisciplinary communication.
- Review key patient and disease characteristics that affect appropriate PTCL treatment selection.
