    Oakstone CME Comprehensive Review of Radiation Oncology

    Radiation Oncology CME from the Experts

    Comprehensive Review of Radiation Oncology consists of 30 one-hour lectures spanning a wide range of radiation therapy treatments that require a complex set of processes: diagnosis, consultation, simulation, contouring target volumes and normal tissue structures, treatment planning, chart review, treatment delivery, quality assurance, and patient follow-up. Authoritative and clinically experienced faculty guide you to more efficient, safer, and higher quality care for each patient. This online CME program will help you to better:

    • Describe delivery speed and dose rates of FLASH radiation therapy
    • List head and neck tumors for which radiotherapy is beneficial
    • Compare radiotherapy for brain metastases and primary brain tumors
    • Summarize differences in therapy for non-small versus small cell lung tumor
    • Discuss therapy for upper and lower GI malignancies
    • Contrast decision making involved in therapy after mastectomy and after breast conservation

    Learning Objectives

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

    • Define the initial clinical evaluation of a cancer patient – using the physical exam, history, relevant diagnostic studies, and communication with the referring and other physicians involved
    • Describe the delivery speed and dose rates of FLASH radiation therapy
    • List the head and neck tumors for which radiotherapy is beneficial
    • Compare radiotherapy for brain metastases with radiotherapy for primary brain tumors
    • Summarize the differences in radiation therapy for non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer
    • Discuss radiation therapy for upper and lower gastrointestinal malignancies
    • Contrast the decision making involved in radiation therapy after mastectomy and after breast conservation
    • Explain effective treatment delivery for gynecological tumors
    • Differentiate the treatment planning required for Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma
    • Compare the doses and beams of various intensities used in stereotactic body radiation therapy used for primary and metastatic gastrointestinal tumors and spinal tumors

    Intended Audience

    This educational activity was designed for radiation oncologists in practice, radiation oncology residents and fellows.

    Preventing and mitigating skeletal-related events in breast cancer

    Each year, more than 290,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed, making it the leading cause of cancer among females in the United States. Although earlier screening and more effective treatment options have improved outcomes among people with breast cancer, more than 43,000 people die from this type of cancer each year. Throughout the course of breast cancer management, bone health remains an important consideration. In early breast cancer, chemotherapy-induced ovarian failure and endocrine therapy can contribute to BMD loss and subsequent osteoporosis and fracture. In advanced breast cancer, about 70% of all patients will experience bone metastases, placing patients at risk for SREs. In fact, breast cancer is associated with the highest risk of SREs among all tumor types.

    Maintaining bone health in patients with breast cancer requires routine monitoring and proactive management to minimize the risk of BMD loss, osteoporosis, and SREs. Guidelines therefore recommend that patients with non-metastatic breast cancer initiating aromatase inhibitors or other treatment that causes bone loss undergo dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans to assess baseline BMD. Furthermore, patients at risk for osteoporosis should receive regular follow-up DXA scans to monitor for BMD loss. This represents an opportunity for ongoing education about the need for monitoring to ensure maintenance of optimal bone health.
