AMP Horizons Series: Applications of Molecular Diagnostic Modalities in Tumors of the Central Nervous System

This contains the webinar and continuing education credit (CME, CMLE, and SAM) 


This webinar provides an overview of the major updates from the 2016 WHO CNS Classification and subsequent cIMPACT-NOW recommendations. An algorithmic approach to routine management of common CNS tumor types will be discussed, along with current and future treatment considerations. Additional content will cover optimal approaches for challenging and unusual cases.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review new molecularly defined entities from 2016 WHO and cIMPACT-NOW updates
  • Discuss best practice testing algorithms, including implications for treatment planning
  • Discuss methodology for synthesizing molecular data with histologic information in common and unusual tumor types

Accreditation Statements
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. 

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).
