Controversies in Brain Metastasis Management: Interactive Case-Based Discussion - 2020 Annual Meeting

This course will present four challenging brain metastases cases and variations thereof that speak to the following themes: multiple brain metastases, brain metastases responsive to systemic therapy agents, complications of radiotherapy including neurocognitive effects, and large radiotherapy targets. Each case will have input from multiple perspectives including a medical oncology perspective, an international perspective, and an advanced radiotherapy perspective. Audience participation will be encouraged through interactive feedback based on multiple-choice questions to the audience about how they would manage cases. 

Target Audience

The activity is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation physicists, radiation therapists, radiation dosimetrists, nurses, and radiation oncology residents. 

Learning Objectives

    1. Assess treatment options for brain metastases including advanced radiotherapy techniques and systemic therapy options.
    2. Apply their knowledge of radiotherapy and systemic therapy options to provide the personalized care to patients and appropriate referrals.
