Course Overview

The purpose of this symposium is to refine the knowledge base of medical practitioners who treat children with regard for common pediatric hematologic and oncologic disorders.  Participation in this program should provide the attendee with practical information that will help them in day-to-day patient management.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be
able to:

  • Describe the diagnosis and management of genitourinary
    tumors and neuroblastoma, which combined, constitute the
    second most common form of solid tumors during childhood.

  • Be able to better counsel and assist patients and families who refuse specific treatment recommendations offered by the primary care physician or subspecialty consultant.

  • Confidently discuss how and why children with a variety of systemic disorders are associated with hematologic abnormalities that may be diagnostic clues or complicate the management.

  • Make management decisions regarding common mild
    hematologic abnormalities such as anemia, leukopenia,
    lymphadenopathy, and thrombocytosis.
