7:00 AM - 8:00 AM
Jag Bhawan, MD, FAAD
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Avoid common CPC associated pitfalls.
- Communicate with the dermatopathologist to improve patient care.
The correlation of pathological findings with clinical data is crucial in arriving at a correct diagnosis and for proper patient management. Clinicopathological Correlation (CPC) through open access dialogue between the clinician and the dermatopathologist is essential for the practice of dermatology and dermatopathology. This session will illustrate the importance of CPC through the discussion of cases in my academic practice as a dermatologist and a dermatopathologist. At the conclusion of the session attendees would know how to avoid common CPC associated pitfalls and how to better communicate with the dermatopathologist to improve patient care.
