2020 Annual Meeting - American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) — ASTRO Joint Session on the Multidisciplinary Management of Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Guidelines, Practicalities and a Tumor Board

Liver cancer incidence is growing faster than any other cancer in men and women. It is evident that the optimal care of patients with HCC necessitates the involvement of a multidisciplinary team utilizing evidence-based cancer guidelines. The American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) Guidelines for the Treatment of HCC serves as the benchmark synoptic guideline for the best evidence-based management of HCC, with NCCN guidelines for HCC adapted from the AASLD guidelines. In this joint AASLD-ASTRO educational session, attendees will gain an appreciation for the AASLD guidelines on the optimal multidisciplinary management for patients with non-metastatic HCC. For clinical scenarios where the data for optimal liver-directed or surgical therapy is conflicted, attendees will hear from a multidisciplinary panel consisting of interventional radiology, hepatology, surgery and interventional radiology on best approaches, perils and pitfalls. 

Target Audience

The activity is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, surgeons, diagnostic radiologists, specialists, and radiation oncology residents. 

Learning Objectives

    1. Determine the necessity of a multidisciplinary team in the management of HCC and the expertise each brings to the optimal care of the patient.
    2. Differentiate clinical scenarios where AASLD guidelines have clear recommendations on optimal therapies for the management of HCC.
