Best Practices in NSCLC Small Specimen Management for Laboratory Professionals




Speaker:

Dara Aisner, MD, PhD

Moderator:

Sinchita Roy-Chowdhuri, MD, PhD

This webinar is a recorded presentation of a live broadcast and includes the presentation, handout, and the audience QA.


Description:

This session will focus on the approaches to management of small tissue samples in the pathology laboratory. These will include diagnostic approaches minimizing use of immunohistochemistry, best practices for maximizing tissue preservation for ancillary studies, and technical considerations for optimal sample use. Additional practices which can be deployed for further tissue maximization will also be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify key obstacles to ensuring adequate tissue availability for molecular analysis in new diagnosis samples of NSCLC.
  • Elaborate on technical approaches to the specimen handling and laboratory processes which can maximize tissue preservation for molecular testing while maintaining diagnostic integrity.

AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) and Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP). The American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The ASCP designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This continuing medical laboratory education activity is recognized by the American Society for Clinical Pathology for 1.0 hours of CMLE credit. ASCP CMLE credit hours are acceptable for the ASCP Board of Certification (BOC) Certification Maintenance Program (CMP). CMLE credit hours meet the continuing education requirements for the ASCP Board of Certification Credential Maintenance Program (CMP) and state relicensure requirements for laboratory personnel. Participants should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

To earn SAM credit, all learners must watch the webinar, achieve a minimum score of 80% on the online quiz, and complete an online survey.

This course is approved by the American Board of Pathology for 1.0 SAM credits.Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Participants must successfully complete the online modular exams (answering at least 80% of the questions in a topic module correctly).

* You may not submit SAMs and CME/CMLE credit for the same content.

This webinar is part 3 of a five-part series aimed at breaking down barriers to NSCLC testing and treatment.
