CheckPath Castleman Disease Activity
Funded by an independent educational grant from Janssen Pharmaceuticals.
To promote continued learning and growth for pathologists participating in the live or virtual educational session, ASCP has developed a set of CheckPath exercises relating to Castleman Disease (CD). The activity provides a way for pathologists to enhance their understanding regarding the diagnosis and management of Castleman Disease.
The CheckPath Castleman Disease educational activity is a virtual slide-based assessment program in which 2 cases of Castleman Disease-diagnostic entities are presented online. Participants will receive peer-reviewed interpretations for each case and demographically-based laboratory and individual participant reports with peer-to-peer comparisons. In addition, participants will be eligible to earn up to 2 CME or Self-Assessment Module (SAMs CME) credits and meet requirements for the American Board of Pathology’s (ABP) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV Improvement in Medical Practice. Upon answer submission, each participant will receive a full diagnostic interpretation focusing on differential diagnoses.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to demonstrate the ability to:
- Identify the contemporary classification of Castleman Disease (CD) based on underlying pathogenesis
- Describe the clinical and pathological features of CD subtypes
- List the laboratory tests required for accurate diagnosis and classification of CD
- Discuss the disease to be considered in the differential diagnosis
- Describe current clinical management of CD/Multicentric Castleman Disease (MCD)
