The Thyroid Cancer 2015: Advances in the Diagnosis & Treatment of Thyroid Nodular Disease and Cancer conference offers participants a unique opportunity to witness experts deliberate and debate how they would manage patients suspected of having thyroid cancer.  This active learning format features critical deliberations regarding patient cases, clinical findings, differential diagnoses and management plan options. Participants will examine cases from multiple perspectives, and gain in-depth understanding to how experienced healthcare providers approach difficult patient care decisions. Keynote Lectures from leading practitioners provide evidence for care decisions discussed in panels.

The combined format of live debate and didactic presentations will allow participants to observe and question faculty practitioners as they deal with real patient problems and demonstrate how to apply new information and evidence based guidelines into their practices.

This course will evaluate the recent advances in diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to Thyroid Nodular Disease and Cancer that have altered traditional management paradigms. The latest evidence-based guidelines from the American Thyroid Association regarding Thyroid Cancer will be reviewed and practitioners will be provided with an array of contemporary management elements with which to approach patients with Thyroid Nodular Disease and Cancer.
