To provide updated diagnostically relevant information on predominantly immunohistochemical markers, useful antibodies, optimal clones and optimal antibody panels applicable in diagnostic pathology as well as highlight the possible laboratory and diagnostic pitfalls. The session on molecular pathology has been extended in this edition.
The course will consist of series of lectures focusing on broad fields in diagnostic pathology and selected relevant topics, as well as case presentations based on virtual slides. The special virtual microscopy session with live evaluation of slides and comments on submitted cases from the leading experts in gynecological and soft tissue pathology is also organized. Given recommendations will be based on the results of the relevant epitope assessments conducted in EQA programs and focused on protocol optimization and standardization.
The applications to European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®, https://eaccme.uems.eu/) for CME credits (ECMEC®s) and EthicalMedTech (https://www.ethicalmedtech.eu/medtech-apps/cvs/view-event/EMT7756) will be submitted.
The course is organized in cooperation between Jagiellonian University and Maria Skłodowska-Curie National Research Institute of Oncology, Kraków Branch with support of Stavanger University Hospital, NordiQC, Polish Society of Pathology and Norwegian Society of Pathology.
