CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Urology Times®, the leading multimedia platform for urologists and allied health professionals, is pleased to announce a partnership with Large Urology Group Practice Association (LUGPA). Through this partnership, Urology Times® and LUGPA will produce a monthly virtual tumor board titled “Around the Practice,” commencing January 2021.
“As an organization that provides unequaled support and resources to integrated urology practices, LUGPA serves as a cornerstone of specialty,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, parent company of Urology Times®. “We look forward to evolving our partnership with LUGPA to expand upon our venues of information dissemination, with content derived from industry expertise and clinical perspectives.”
The virtual tumor board will focus solely on genitourinary (GU) cancer and explore all relative facets. The objective is to allow providers across the United States the ability to submit actual challenging cases for management discussion across all GU malignancies that are encountered on a routine basis.
Raoul S. Concepcion, M.D., FACS, and Jason Hafron, M.D., will co-moderate the multidisciplinary program, which will feature guest panelists such as community urologists, oncologists and other members of the integrative cancer care team. Each “Around the Practice” tumor board will present didactic discussion with live interaction between the registered viewing audience and selected guest discussants representing urology, radiation oncology and medical oncology. Scheduled cases (to be solicited or submitted) will include the following:
- Muscle-invasive bladder/urothelial cancer (MIBC)
- Upper tract urothelial carcinoma
- Incidentally discovered adrenal mass
- Non–muscle-invasive bladder/urothelial cancer (NMIBC), bacillus Calmette-Guérin unresponsive
- Oligometastatic prostate cancer
“Around the Practice” will broadcast on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 5:00 P.M. EST with 2 cases presented for each tumor board. These virtual events will be available for LUGPA members and the Urology Times® audience.
