Identified Practice Gaps/Educational Needs

There is often discordance between specialists on the ideal treatment strategies for patients with spinal tumors. This is evident in conferences, in rounds, and in workshops. This course aims to address this gap by having these specialists discuss their treatment paradigms in one setting to improve the quality of patient care and communication among the various providers.
