170 Tumor Genomics and Cancer Genetics Tumor Board: "NCI MATCH Clinical Trial on Genetic Testing: The rationale behind mutations selected, testing methodologies used, and logistic challenges" (111615)
Discuss the clinical implications of somatic/tumor genomic testing in oncology care. Discuss the management of patients found to have potentially "actionable" somatic mutation in a multidisplinary setting. Multidisciplinary review of somatic genomic testing results to discuss prognosis and potential alternative therapeutics, clinical trials etc. Recogonize the implications of incidental germline mutations that can be identified with tumor genomic testing and discuss further testing and mangement.
Medical Radiation, and Surgical Oncologists; Radiologists; Pathologists; Urologists; Neurologists; Genetic Counselors; UTSW Faculty, Fellows and Residents in training; and private practice oncologists.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to: 1. Understand how genomic testing may alter treatment decisions and provide full follow up of tumor genomics testing. 2. Interpret a tumor genomic report. 3. Identify incidental germline findings in a genomic report. 4. Plan and implement clinical management of patients with a germline genetic mutation. 5. Explain how to properly consent a patient undergoing tumor genomic testing.
