You Did What?! Controversies in Brain Tumor Management 7th Annual Northwell Health Meeting on Stereotactic Radiosurgery
This activity will allow participants to gain an improved fund of knowledge regarding the best practices, indications and current research pertaining to management of brain tumors with SRS.  In addition, experienced practitioners will broaden their understanding of the indications and outcomes for conditions that they may not have extensive personal experience in treating.

Statement of Need: Physicians who treat patients with conditions amenable to stereotactic radiosurgery do not always have a full understanding of the underlying principles, indications, outcomes, nuances and techniques for SRS. As there are ongoing developments in the fields of neurosurgery and radiation oncology it is difficult for clinicians to remain up-to-date. Conferences such as this aim to resolve gaps by discussing current research, breakthroughs and state-of-the-art treatment modalities. This allows patients the opportunity to take advantage of the latest, safest and most effective treatment options for their condition. As a result of this symposium, practitioners will improve their knowledge base of technical aspects, best practices, potential complications and indications of SRS to improve the clinical outcomes of patients.
Program Objectives:All Northwell Health CME activities are intended to improve patient care, safety and outcomes. At the conclusion of this conference participants should be able to
-Describe advances in SRS technology.
-Implement best practices for SRS treatment of brain tumors.
-Review indications for proton therapy and advances in the management of patients with skull base tumors.  
-Review indications for SRS treatment in patients with multiple metastases.
-Discuss the use of proton therapies for glioma.
Target Audience: Neurosurgeons, Medical and Radiation Oncologists, Neurologists, Radiologists.
