CTCA Offers CME Course Around Multidisciplinary GI Cancer Care


Toufic Kachaamy, MD, discusses an upcoming course that teaches the multidisciplinary approach for clinicians who have a hand in treating gastrointestinal cancers.

Toufic Kachaamy, MD, Enterprise program leader, Interventional Programs and Medical Director of Gastroenterology at Cancer Treatment Centers of America Phoenix, discusses an upcoming course for clinicians who have a hand in treating gastrointestinal (GI) cancers.

The continuing medical education course titled "Interventional Gastroenterology and Multidisciplinary Gastrointestinal Cancer Care" will be held on Saturday, April 23, 2022, in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Kachaamy explains that this course was developed to fill an education gap for clinicians who treat GI cancers. Considering this, the intended audience includes medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists and surgeons, gastroenterologists, advance practice providers and nurses, palliative care providers, and interventionalists.


0:07 | We realized a gap in multidisciplinary care, especially as it relates to the expanding capabilities of interventional gastroenterology. There is nothing out there that serves to bridge that gap to educate the multidisciplinary oncology team on the capabilities of gastroenterology, especially therapeutic endoscopy and also to educate community therapeutic ambassadors as to what the oncologist, radiation oncologists, and surgical oncologists need from them.

0:44 | So, realizing that gap, we decided to build a CME course with that focus on the innovation in gastroenterology and the needs of the multidisciplinary team from the interventional GI world. And our inaugural CME will be on April 23 in Phoenix. We're very excited about it. There's been a lot of enthusiasm about it. And we're hoping to be able to bridge that gap in knowledge and skills.
