First U.S. PIPAC Training Workshop
Proudly Presented by City of Hope & ISSPP
First U.S. PIPAC Training Workshop Overview
Pressurized intraperitoneal aerosolized chemotherapy (PIPAC) is a novel therapy for patients with peritoneal metastases from gastrointestinal (GI) and ovarian cancers. Few effective treatment options exist for these patients. PIPAC is administered at time of diagnostic laparoscopy and requires certification of surgical oncologists through a PIPAC training course, with quality assurance overseen by the International Society for the Study of Pleura and Peritoneum (ISSPP). No training course has taken place in the U.S. to date, and this will be the first PIPAC training course in America.
PIPAC is a promising novel therapy to address peritoneal metastases of GI and ovarian cancer patients. As this is a novel therapy in the U.S., this is the first U.S. PIPAC training course to train and certify a practitioner to administer this therapy.
WORKSHOP HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:
- Didactics addressing the concept, outlining occupational health measures, demonstrating safety steps and identifying equipment needed to perform PIPAC procedures
- Dry Lab simulation
- Course Exam and Certification
This educational training workshop is directed toward surgical oncologists, gynecologic oncologists, fellows-in-training, medical oncologists, and other medical personnel interested in assisting with pressurized intraperitoneal aerosolized chemotherapy care (pharmacists, anesthesiologists, operating room registered nurses).
- Discuss the concept and rationale of pressurized intraperitoneal aerosolized chemotherapy (PIPAC) for patients with peritoneal metastases.
- Outline steps to ensure occupational health measures during PIPAC procedures.
- Demonstrate safety steps during PIPAC procedures.
- Identify equipment needed to perform PIPAC procedures.
