V-Learning: Targeting MET with an emphasis on NSCLC

Solange Peters, Lecturer of the new V-learing module on MET

ESMO’s strategic goal is to continually develop on-line educational tools for professionals in the field of Medical Oncology and foster new challenging CME opportunities for ESMO Members

What is ESMO V-Learning?

Recent scientific discoveries in cancer and signalling pathways for which an update of knowledge is needed and for its complete understanding additional video material is beneficialScience in cancer is moving rapidly and to keep in pace with rapid progresses, more complete understanding of molecular biology/pathology, or technological advances is needed. The V-Learning platform is ideal to present such novelties end enhance understanding of clinicians by additional visual components beyond classical slide presentationIt present in more realistic way what’s going on at the cancer cell level and provide in more details the mechanistic aspects involved in different cancer processes

Relatris‘s insight:

The European Society for Medical Oncologists has many great resources for (continued) education. The newest family member are V-Learning lectures: slides and video sections combined (with questionnaires). Video lectures with slides are the format of the widely popular MOOCs, providing a more personal way of teaching than just hearing a voice from the off while seeing some slides. This integration of new trends in education into their continued education lectures is an innovative way of ESMO to further improve their programms.

Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Oncology Volume 04, Issue 06: Advances in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Benign and Malignant Brain Tumors.

The goals of this program are to improve management of brain metastases and review recent and ongoing research on immunotherapy for gliomas. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Compare the efficacy of different dosing strategies for whole-brain radiation therapy (WBRT) in the treatment of brain metastases.
2. Determine whether a patient with brain metastases is likely to benefit from the addition of radiosurgery or conventional surgery to WBRT.
3. Evaluate the effect of WBRT on neurocognitive function in patients with brain metastases.
4. Explain principles of immunology that are manipulated in new approaches to immunotherapy.
5. Recognize the advantages of a patient-specific in vivo approach to immunotherapeutic induction vaccination.

Relatris‘s insight:

New audio programm for continued education- learn while driving a car or cleaning your house!
