S1882 Applying the New AJCC Staging System to Daily Diagnostic Practice: Gastrointestinal Pathology

This Rodger C. Haggitt GI Pathology Society session is an evidence-based update on the new AJCC staging system, specifically with regards to gastrointestinal neoplasms. It will address critical changes that been made to staging parameters and how to apply them to daily diagnostic practice. The course has a didactic component, followed by case presentations that illustrate and reinforce key points. The faculty will explain and demonstrate how to recognize important or challenging pathologic aspects of GI cancers as relevant to the updated cancer staging system and how pathologists will impact the patient’s management. There will be ample time for questions, and discussion between the presenters and participants will be encouraged. The course is intended for practicing surgical pathologists as well as residents and fellows.

You will learn to:
• Identify new staging parameters in gastrointestinal tumors
• Recognize strengths and weaknesses of the evidence behind the changes in staging parameters
• Accurately diagnose pathological aspects of gastrointestinal tumors that may impact clinical management, such as proper grossing, margin assessment, and other staging components
• Identify the latest clinical treatments of GI tumors
