Pediatric Synoptic Pathology Reporting Webinars

As part of POGO’s long-range plan for childhood cancer in Ontario, a task force was initiated to determine reporting protocols currently in use, to review/generate/approve reporting templates and conventions, and to recommend future practice in Ontario. The POGO Pathology and Molecular Diagnostics task force identified and endorsed the College of American Pathologists’ (CAP) existing pediatric protocols as the expert consensus-based approach to reporting and is recommending their adoption in Ontario.

To date, there have been three Pediatric Synoptic Pathology Reporting webinars, hosted by POGO,  the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC) and Canadian Association of Pathologists (CAP-ACP), to educate the pathology community on these protocols and encourage their adoption. These webinars provide expert advice for advancing pediatric oncology toward standardized reporting of pathology specimens; optimal pathology investigation; incremental clarity of clinical implications; and unprecedented analytics.

Learning Objectives:

  1. To review the College of American Pathologists’ (CAP) protocols related to pediatric oncology and their use by pathologists.
  2. To understand changes in the latest revision of the CAP cancer protocols and electronic cancer checklists.

Audience:
Pathologists, Pathology Fellows and Residents;
Pediatric Oncologists, Surgeons, Radiation Oncologists;
Clinical Research Associates (CRA’s)
