Statement of Need

CME is integrated into the process for improving professional practice with educational strategies implemented to remove, overcome or address barriers to physician change. Physicians are unable to consistently integrate new information into their practices because of the ways new medical knowledge is structured and disseminated, and the time it takes to completely scan for new information. Practical Reviews publications select and translate peer-reviewed literature for practical use, therefore diminishing the barrier of time.

Intended Audience

Pathologists and others interested in anatomic and clinical pathology.

Special Prerequisites for Participants:

There are no prerequisites for participants.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will demonstrate the ability to:
  • Analyze the most current, clinically useful information available in the monthly journal literature covering both anatomic and clinical pathology
  • Discuss advances in the pathologic diagnosis of disease entities including diseases of the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, respiratory, nervous, reproductive, reticuloendothelial-hematopoietic and integumentary systems
  • Evaluate where controversies exist in pathology
  • Discuss the latest basic science findings and their potential impact on clinical problems
