Current Paradigms in Interventional Pulmonology | Endobronchial Ultrasound and Advanced Bronchoscopy in the Era of Robotics
Endobronchial ultrasound has quickly become the standard of care in the diagnosis and staging of thoracic malignancy as well as benign diseases. Now with introduction of robotic bronchoscopy, we are on the verge of another major advancement in the role of bronchoscopy for accessing peripheral pulmonary lesions. Optimally performing these procedures, in appropriate patients, is paramount, and requires proper training of the entire team involved. This year, we are placing a special emphasis on teamwork and collaboration during hands-on sessions, as well as providing separate didactic lecture series for the MDs and the RNs/Techs for more relevant topics for each group. If you are interested in attending the RN/PA/NP lecture track, please make your selection at registration as space is very limited. Additionally, we are pleased to offer a team discount available for 1 physician and 1 RN/PA/NP from the same organization (see details below under registration). This well-received annual CME course reviews these crucial advanced diagnostic and staging procedures, how to optimize performance in a multidisciplinary team oriented fashion and provides hands-on workshops with expert faculty. MD Lecture Track: Lymph Node Anatomy and Lung Cancer Staging EBUS and Introducing New Technology in Private Practice Surgical Staging in Mediastinum EBUS in Lymphoma, Sarcoid, and TB EBUS TBNA EBUS Practice Tips Cytology and Molecular Analysis Guided and Robotic Bronchoscopy RN/PA/NP Lecture Track (space is very limited): EBUS – Diagnostic and Therapeutic Indications Emergency Management during EBUS Geriatric Considerations Scope Damage and Maintenance Issues Teamwork during Bronchoscopy EBUS TBNA EBUS Practical Tips Cytology and Molecular Analysis Guided and Robotic Bronchoscopy Hands-On Workshops (optional add on): The workshops will be limited to 30 participants to allow for maximum interaction with course faculty and ample hands-on experience. After the 30 hands-on slots are filled, participants may register for the lecture-only portion. Workshop topics include: EBUS-TBNA Cytology & Specimen Processing Radial EBUS Navigation Robotic Bronchoscopy Team Workshop Live Simulcast Available (Lectures Only): We are pleased to offer a live simulcast option for the lecture portion of this course only. CME credit will still be offered for the live simulcast and active participation is required throughout the course. We do hope you will attend in person but understand that can sometimes be a challenge so we are happy to offer the live simulcast as an option. Registration for the simulcast is required; to register, please select the "Live Simulcast" option during course registration.
