Multi-Disciplinary Organization Dedicated to Promoting Advances in
Neuro-Oncology Through Research and Education

15th Annual Brain Tumor Update and the 4th International Symposium on Long-Term Control of Metastases to the Brain

 

About the Symposium
Better control of systemic disease and more aggressive treatments have led to
enhanced survival in patients with CNS metastasis. Little focus, however, has been
placed on the long-term control of CNS metastasis and the impact of such control
on the patient. This symposium will examine interventions, controversies, and late
effects associated with long-term control of central nervous system metastasis. The
symposium will also focus on biology of glioma and potential for innovative therapeutic
approaches to treatment of glioblastoma. Discuss the roles of surgery, radiation
therapy and systemic therapy in treatment of gliomas.
 
Learning Objectives
1. Discuss the roles of surgery, radiation therapy and systemic therapy in the long-term
control of CNS metastasis.
2. Discuss the long-term neurocognitive toxicities of treatment of brain metastasis.
3. Discuss the biology of glioma and potential for innovative therapeutic approaches
in treatment of gliomas.
4. Discuss the roles of surgery, radiation therapy and systemic therapy in treatment
of gliomas.
 
Target Audience
Neurosurgeons, Radiation Oncologists, Medical Oncologists, Neuro-oncologists,
Neurologists, and allied healthcare professionals who work with patients with tumors.
