The 2021 CGA Annual Meeting will be directed to colorectal surgeons, medical oncologists, gastroenterologists, internists, gynecologists, researchers, geneticists, nurses, colorectal cancer registry coordinators, genetic counselors, psychologists and other professionals involved in the care of individuals with hereditary gastrointestinal cancer, including colorectal, esophageal, pancreatic, gastric, and small bowel cancers.
After completing this activity, participants will be able to do the following:
Summarize recent research on the basic biology of gastrointestinal cancer development, including modifiers of the hereditary phenotypes
Describe potential implications for clinical practice
Implement new approaches to screening and preventing gastrointestinal cancers
Summarize the evidence for new diagnostics, devices, and pharmaceuticals
Describe the impact of newly discovered genes and the use of recently introduced gene panels to diagnose and manage hereditary gastrointestinal cancer syndromes
Institute use of clinical and genetic modifiers of the hereditary cancer risk in their clinical practice
Define the changing care models for diagnosis and management of various hereditary cancer syndromes
List the surgical approaches to hereditary gastrointestinal cancer syndromes for both treatment and prophylaxis
Describe patient criteria for referral for surgery that offers optimal outcomes
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the New Mexico Medical Society (NMMS) through the joint providership of Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services (RMCHCS) and the Collaborative Group of the Americas on Inherited Colorectal Cancer. RMCHCS is accredited by the NMMS to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
RMCHCS designates this live activity for a certain amount of predetermined AMA PRA Category 1 Credits (TBD). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) will authorize CGA-IGC to offer up to a certain amount of CEUs or Category 1 contact hours (TBD) for the activity 2021 CGA-IGC Annual Meeting.
