Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant will be able to do the following:

  • Summarize the molecular genetics and epigenetics of inherited colorectal cancer syndromes and the impact of those genetics and epigenetics on the treatment of these conditions;
  • Describe emerging research in the etiology and prevention of colorectal cancer and review some of the chemoprevention treatment options for inherited colorectal cancer syndromes;
  • Summarize the newest research in the behavioral, basic science, and clinical aspects of hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes;
  • Identify and resolve difficult case management issues in the treatment of hereditary colorectal cancer;
  • Discuss the role of genetic counselors, primary care physicians, and public health initiatives to improve identification and treatment of patients and their families with hereditary colorectal cancer syndromes;
  • Summarize the endoscopic identification and medical, endoscopic, and surgical management of individuals with familial polyposis and other inherited colorectal cancer syndromes;
  • Describe the ethical implications of testing for hereditary colorectal cancers, including in the prenatal and pediatric realms, and summarize some of the current available methods for this testing.

Special Breakfast Sessions

MONDAY
OCTOBER 10

Cases with the Experts
This multidisciplinary session provides the opportunity for participants to present challenging hereditary colorectal cancer cases to the CGA experts. Cases will be solicited via email prior to the meeting, and the experts will also present their own cases for discussion. This breakfast provides a small-group setting for in-depth discussions with those used to handling difficult cases.  

Genetics Primer for Nongeneticists
Going beyond the basics, these CGA experts will present an advanced discussion on genetic testing, modern sequencing, and genetic techniques for those meeting participants who aren’t immersed in these issues on a day-to-day basis or those interested in a brief but thorough review. This will serve as an excellent primer prior to the CGA meeting.

How to Establish Reflex Testing at Your Institution
Trying to get reflex testing for hereditary colorectal cancer set up at your institution but don’t know where to start? These CGA experts with extensive experience with establishing reflex testing at their institutions will present their advice on getting it done. Participants are encouraged to describe their personal challenges including issues with consent, multidisciplinary buy-in, and results reporting.

 

TUESDAY
OCTOBER 11

Not CME Accreditated

These working group sessions will assist the attendees by providing a small group setting for discussing  current challenges and providing insight into common themes from multiple institutions. Proposed working groups topics (subject to change) are as follows:

  • Registry working group              
  • Serrated polyposis working group                                               
  • Genetic counseling working group
