CME Online: A case of a coal worker with pneumoconiosis
18 November, 2019
A new CME module is now available that focuses on a patient with coalworker’s pneumoconiosis who is also diagnosed with lung cancer.
Led by Professor David Baldwin and Dr Torsten Gerriet, this module features a panel discussion, interactive case simulation and suggested readings, which will help to teach participants to:
- Identify radiological features of coalworker’s pneumoconiosis and when further investigation is warranted
- Understand the recommended series of investigations in diagnosing and staging non-small cell lung cancer
- Understand the meaning and significance of anthracotic pigmentation in lymph nodes
- Describe the factors influencing the assessment of fitness for surgery in patients with lung cancer and the alternative treatments available
Participants with a myERS account will also be able to take a test on the topic at the end of the module, which is accredited with one CME credit. A CME certificate will be awarded upon successful completion of the CME test.
