Michele D. Raible Lecture for Residents:
Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 20.20
Henry Rinder, MD, FASCP

Molecular classification of breast cancer and molecular prognostic tests are being used increasingly to guide the management of patients with breast cancer.

This lecture will provide the latest information on the current status and future directions of molecular classification of breast cancer, molecular prognostic tests and next generation sequencing in the evaluation of breast cancers.

Learning objectives:
  • Describe the molecular classification of breast cancer and its clinical implications.
  • Evaluate the uses and limitations of currently available molecular prognostic tests for patients with breast cancer.
  • Describe the emerging role of genome sequencing in the management of patients with breast cancer.
A major factor that influences a quality conscious environment is empowered leaders who have the ability to foster productive outcomes. Leaders must create an organizational culture of empowered people who have the freedom to exhibit self-direction in achieving the institutional mission and goals. In this work environment all staff members are leaders.  

Discussion will center on the elements and benefits of empowerment, influence strategies, and self- empowering tools which promote peak performance that can assure patient safety and thus quality patient outcomes.

Learning objectives:
  • Describe the value and function of empowerment which leads to a culture of pride and quality performance.
  • Apply influence strategies that will promote patient safety and improve patient outcomes.
  • Implement self-empowering tools which maintain leadership skills and peak performance.
The practice of pathology and laboratory medicine is constantly evolving.  Listen in and learn about some of the challenges of maintaining enthusiasm and skills for life-long learning. 

Illustrative cases and conundrums will be discussed with the aims of:
  • Defining the pathologist of the future
  • Examining how you may be practicing after 2020
  • Preparing strategies for the unknown

Learning objectives:

  • Understand life-long learning skills.
  • Appreciate the need for continuous quality improvement.
  • Apply personal goals and interests to the mission of pathology and laboratory medicine
