Session 2: Pushing the Arc Towards “Techquity”: Patient-Centric Virtual Care

Join patient experience experts in discussing ways to bring health equity in virtual care to the next level for patients. Experts will analyze interdisciplinary approaches to improve patient satisfaction. COVID exacerbated the preexisting inequities in care for vulnerable populations, and while virtual care restored access to care for many, in some cases it further deepened these disparities. This session will focus on the interaction between health equity, digital health and the patient experience, and how health systems can design for these challenges.

Description

For more than 40 years, “Advances in Rheumatology” has been influential in educating generations of clinicians on over 100 rheumatic conditions, which now encompass the specialty. A collaboration between Harvard Medical School’s two largest teaching hospitals, the Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the course not only focuses on rheumatic diseases, but offers additional perspectives from other medical disciplines, such as pulmonology, dermatology, oncology, ophthalmology, and endocrinology. “Advances in Rheumatology” targets the practicing clinician seeking to enhance their clinical skills and increase their knowledge with the latest breakthroughs in the diagnosis, treatment, and pathophysiology of rheumatic diseases.

This three day livestream course will be a combination of sessions formatted with lectures by leading experts on topics pertaining to their special areas of interest, curbside consultations and panel discussions. Topics include The Year in Rheumatology, updates on Giant Cell Arteritis, Orbital Inflammatory Disease, Systemic Sclerosis, Hemophagocytic Syndrome, the New England Journal of Medicine Clinicopathological Conference (CPC)  and various disease focused afternoon sessions such as Lupus, Psoriatic Arthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. The full range of rheumatic disease is covered every year over the span of this course.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize the epidemiology and the spectrum of clinical manifestations associated with different types of LVV (e.g. giant cell arteritis, Takayasu’s arteritis).
  2. Differentiate between the strengths and limitations of various LVV diagnostic methods (e.g. biopsy, vascular ultrasound, advanced imaging modalities [CTA, MRA, PET/CT]) while understanding the test performance of each procedure.
  3. Employ the ability to create a comprehensive management plan for patients with LVV including immunomodulation when needed, prevention of treatment-related side-effects (e.g. glucocorticoid-toxicity, immunization), and longitudinal monitoring for disease relapse and disease-related vascular damage.

This is a virtual course

December 1, 2023


This course provides education on acute and chronic aortic conditions to physicians and APPs who might encounter patients with these conditions in their practice but may not have sufficient familiarity with their management. The course will have two sessions – morning and afternoon. The morning session will focus on the fundamentals of aortic aneurysms and chronic aortic disease and will be targeted to PCPs, cardiologists and APPs. The afternoon session will focus on aortic dissection and other acute aortic syndromes, which will be more relevant to ER physicians and APPs.

THIS IS A VIRTUAL COURSE

In the United States, almost 40% of all inpatient procedures are performed on patients aged 65 and older; at MGB trauma centers over 50% of injured patients are older adults, the majority of whom are frail. To prepare our healthcare system to care for growing numbers of older adults who have increasing medical and psychosocial complexity, front line clinicians including Advanced Practice Providers (APPs), surgical trainees, nurses, and surgical attendings urgently need more training in geriatric syndromes and the 5 pillars of Age-Friendly care (Medication, Mobility, what Matters, Mentation and Multicomplexity). This training will address the needs of the growing number of geriatric patients, and avoid hazards of hospitalization such as delirium, falls, infections, and loss of function, and reduce caregiver strain. These issues are particularly relevant in surgery and trauma where mortality, complications, and other adverse outcomes are consistently higher for older patients than their younger counterparts. Moreover, national stakeholders including CMS and the American College of Surgeons are setting standards for geriatric surgical care that clinicians must be prepared to meet. Evidence suggests that geriatric-focused clinical pathways can reduce delirium, ICU stays, length of stay, and readmissions in older surgical patients. Clinicians will benefit from in depth training in geriatric care to enable the implementation of structures and processes to improve outcomes.

Description

Value-based health care focuses on improving patient health outcomes while reducing health care costs over time. Value-based care benefits all stakeholders in health care: first and foremost, patients, but also providers, healthcare systems, payors, and society at large. However, achieving value-based health outcomes for patients remain low and stagnating at unacceptable levels and all stakeholders remain frustrated.

This lecture series presented by the Massachusetts General Hospital, Department of Neurology’s Center for Value-Based Health Care and Science will inform how well-established frameworks (implementation science and quality improvement) can address unsolved healthcare problems. Additionally, it will serve as a first step for health care providers to learn about these methods and how they can help improve their practice. As a desired result of this educational activity, providers and teams will be able to design and implement value-based healthcare projects and enhance patient reported outcomes across multiple conditions and care settings.

This course consists of 10 weekly lectures from October 2022 to January 2023. Seminars will feature lectures and interactive activities lead by experts with extensive experience in value-based health care and/or sciences. These leaders in the field will share what they have learned and their own methods for overcoming barriers in traditional health care systems to develop successful health care delivery models. Special emphasis will be places on utilizing these methods to tackle and prevent health inequities.

This is an in-person activity.

The Optical Imaging in Neurosurgery Meeting is a gathering of optical imaging experts and neurosurgeons who share a common goal of improving visualization in surgery. This event aims to function both as a showcase of cutting-edge optical imaging technologies and a forum for addressing unmet clinical needs that could potentially be solved by optics-based methods. Through presentation and organized discussion, this meeting seeks to bridge the gap between technological advancement and clinical requirements.

With several new drug and cellular therapies as well as an expansion of our understanding of the biologic heterogeneity of hematologic malignancies, there is a need for ongoing education in the area of hematologic malignancies. This interactive webinar series will focus on current best practices, and how those are evolving based on major updates in the biology, diagnosis, and management of hematologic malignancies. Attendee interaction is encouraged and promoted through the designated time for audience questions at the end of each webinar. Each 90-minute webinar will have two talks followed by discussion and audience Q&A. Presenters will include internationally-known disease experts from Mass General Cancer Center covering high-yield practice-changing updates in cellular therapies, transplant, myeloma, leukemia, and lymphoma.

Cancer treatment has evolved significantly over the past decade from a treatment paradigm anchored on surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, to one embracing molecularly-targeted therapies disrupting tumor-specific signaling pathways, as well as new approaches to mobilize the immune system. For clinicians trying to keep current with advancing immuno-oncology principles and research, the pace of these developments has brought new challenges. Recognizing these challenges, this course will provide a comprehensive clinical review of the advances taking place in the immuno-oncology field.

This course provides interactive didactic lectures and video demonstration of management approaches in the multidisciplinary care of patients with acute heart and lung failure. While there are other CME courses offered at regional academic centers, no center offers an integrated course on heart and lung support.

Our Short-term MCS course brings together a uniquely multidisciplinary panel of speakers, not only including cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons and pulmonologists, but also respiratory therapists, nurses and palliative care physicians. The course faculty reflects the complexity of care for patients with acute heart and lung failure and illustrates how a team of diverse providers work together to address challenges to improve quality of care.

This all-day event will promote the collaboration and interprofessional discussion regarding current innovative techniques and treatments. It will address the current debate surrounding approaches to the mitral valve: catheter-based procedures vs. open heart surgery. While there is some resistance to the use of catheter-based procedures in the treatment of mitral valve disease, this is mostly due to an existing stigma that assumes the old way is the best way. Historically, mitral  valvuloplasty has been primarily treated with open heart surgery, but advancements in technology over the last century have allowed us to apply new techniques for disease treatment. The ongoing debate of which treatment is better (surgery or catheter based) is present in both fields. By the end of the event, attendees will be able to distinguish between the different approaches to the management of mitral valve disease and utilize procedures from both cardiac surgery and cardiology to better their practice in the future.

This is a hybrid event


Now more than ever, the presence of social inequities in healthcare is evident. This two-day, hybrid event, the Cancer Equity Colloquium, will address the diverse issues that underlie cancer inequities. The goal of the Colloquium is to bring together individuals from healthcare, academia, private/public business sector, and the public at large to develop unique approaches to tackling these inequities. We know that impactful initiatives to promote cancer equity require the skills and experiences of individuals from all these sectors of society. The speakers will reflect a similar mixture of backgrounds. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with each other and the Cancer Equity Colloquium faculty in hopes to develop novel partnerships.

THIS IS A VIRTUAL COURSE

Midlife Women’s Health 2024 provides a multi-disciplinary approach to the care of menopausal women. Advances in research, technology, and pharmacology increase options available for midlife women, but this rapidly changing knowledge-base presents a challenge for clinicians. Care for women at this stage of life is optimized by education on a range of medical concerns provided by experts from a wide variety of medical specialties. Given demographic changes in the US population, midlife women are becoming an increasingly important group served by health care professionals, with needs that cross many areas of medical expertise.

In this educational activity, a multidisciplinary group of experts from Massachusetts General Hospital will present on the evaluation and management of gynecologic cancers, vascular disease, parathyroid disease and thyroid nodules, vulvovaginal disorders, lung cancer, cardiovascular health, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, sexuality after cancer, and menopausal hormone therapy to assist clinicians in caring for their midlife patients.

Please Note:
This course has two components you can register for. You can either register for the symposium only, Immunotherapy Toxicities session only, or both 

 


Cancer treatment has evolved significantly over the past decade from a treatment paradigm anchored on surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, to one embracing molecularly-targeted therapies disrupting tumor-specific signaling pathways, as well as new approaches to mobilize the immune system. For clinicians trying to keep current with advancing immuno-oncology principles and research, the pace of these developments has brought new challenges. Recognizing these challenges, this course will provide a comprehensive clinical review of the advances taking place in the immuno-oncology field.

This year we have added an optional session on Immunotherapy Toxicities, focusing on the identification and management of common and uncommon toxicities from immune-checkpoint inhibitors. Attendance at this session, entitled “Sink or Swim: Navigating the Murkey Waters of Immunotherapy Toxicities” is optional and available for an additional fee. It will take place after the close of the general session on the second day. Attendance at the Advances in Cancer Immunotherapy symposium is NOT required to attend this toxicities session, you may register to ONLY attend this part of the program.

THIS IS A HYBRID EVENT
 

Non Healthcare Professionals Registration Instructions: PDF icon Cancer Equity Colloquium 2024_registration instructions.pdf

Now more than ever, the presence of social inequities in healthcare is evident. This two-day, hybrid event, the Cancer Equity Colloquium, will address the diverse issues that underlie cancer inequities. The goal of the Colloquium is to bring together individuals from healthcare, academia, private/public business sector, and the public at large to develop unique approaches to tackling these inequities. We know that impactful initiatives to promote cancer equity require the skills and experiences of individuals from all these sectors of society. The speakers will reflect a similar mixture of backgrounds. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with each other and the Cancer Equity Colloquium faculty to potentially develop novel partnerships.

THIS IS A VIRTUAL COURSE

You will receive the Zoom link upon registering.


More than 10,000 rare diseases are estimated to impact over 30 million Americans. Unfortunately, many individuals remain undiagnosed, leading to prolonged and challenging journeys in pursuit of understanding and proper care. These often place significant burdens on families and strain our medical system. Rapid advancements in genetics have significantly enhanced our diagnostic capabilities and care recommendations, with targeted therapies emerging for select disorders. However, navigating the complex landscape of evaluation and testing options for diagnosis remains a challenge for both families and medical professionals. This program is designed to provide patients, families, and healthcare providers (including both primary and specialty physicians) with the latest insights into a genetic evaluation. Featuring six expert MGH/HMS genetics providers and families of patients, the course covers clinically relevant fundamentals of human genetics, genetic counseling, and the latest technological advancements in diagnostics and therapies.Through engaging lectures and real-life patient perspectives, participants will enhance their understanding of the intricacies surrounding rare genetic disorders. Whether you are a family facing the challenges of diagnosis, a medical provider, or someone with a general interest in the field, this program aims to empower attendees with knowledge to advocate for those affected by these unique conditions.

THIS IS A HYBRID COURSE


Current treatment strategies for patients with complex digestive disorders continue to evolve.  This is largely the result of growing technological advances in surgery and endoscopy. The goal of the Minimally Invasive and Novel Therapeutics (MINT) course is to inform physicians on how best to incorporate these technologies into their practice. Using a video-based format, our goal is technique transfer from world-renowned faculty to the community, hospital, endoscopy suite, and operating room. MINT offers an ideal mix of traditional standard-of-care principles with a balanced and unbiased view of new, cutting-edge information. This hybrid course (in-person and virtual) engages learners through video-based lectures with recordings of surgical and endoluminal therapies, along with lively multidisciplinary panel discussions.

Digestive disease management requires multidisciplinary care. This course intends to break the barriers of subspecialty medicine by bringing together gastroenterologists, surgeons, psychologists, APPs, nurses, and dietitians to learn from each other. Since many surgeons and endoscopists learn best by “doing”, this course offers hands-on skills sessions in both endoluminal therapies and surgical techniques taught by national and international experts.
