Course Preview: Queen Square Multidisciplinary Neuro-oncology Teaching Course

Posted in Courses & Conferences on 23rd Jun 2020

Course Director: Dr Jeremy Rees 

The need for multidisciplinary working in neuro-oncology is well established but a common theme that will be addressed is the need for better understanding between core specialties within the Neuro-oncology Multidisciplinary Team.

To address this, this course has been designed for Trainees, Consultants and Clinical Nurse Specialists in the core specialities of neuro-oncology – Neurology, Neurosurgery, Clinical Oncology, Neuroradiology, Neuropathology and Palliative Care.

The Aims of the Course are:

  1. To introduce the basic principles and recent advances in Neuro-oncological treatments
  2. To develop a standardised approach to the diagnosis and classification of brain and spinal tumours using modern imaging, histopathology and molecular genetic techniques.
  3. To develop an understanding of the multidisciplinary management of patients with primary and metastatic brain and spine tumours, and other rarer tumours of the nervous system.
  4. To develop an understanding of the symptomatic management of the brain tumour patient with neurological symptoms, including palliative and end-of-life care and treatment related toxicity.
  5. To provide an opportunity for multidisciplinary discussion of common and rare cases

The course will be divided into two days throughout 2020-2021 and will be delivered by the consultant staff of the UCLH/UCL/National Hospital Neuro-oncology multidisciplinary team.
