Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Case-Based Lecture Series

Term: 2012
Published: October 15, 2012
Revised: June 9, 2015

The resource is an online case-based lecture that encompasses frequently-seen inpatient scenarios on a pediatric hematology-oncology ward (fever and neutropenia, tumor lysis syndrome, nausea and vomiting, and acute chest syndrome). The content is aimed at those who rotate on this inpatient service: first-year pediatric hematology-oncology fellows and pediatric, medicine-pediatric and family-practice residents. Medical students rotating on the service also could review this resource with guidance from residents or fellows.

While none of the cases should be viewed as an exhaustive discussion of the topic, an effort has been made to focus on areas of frequent discussion (and occasional controversy) among inpatient hematology-oncology providers. The format is ideal for self-study or for teaching from a more senior member of the team (resident or fellow) who has previously looked through the cases. The cases should be used as a supplement to instruction already occurring from fellows and attendings.
