Course Summary

The field of brain tumor research, diagnosis, and treatment is rapidly evolving. Over 120 types of brain tumors have been identified to date, and that number continues to increase. As the information available about brain tumors expands, so does the ability to target screening and therapies to provide patients with optimal outcomes. It is essential that health clinicians understand brain tumor surgery and treatment options in order to communicate it to their patients and to develop a care plan focused on a positive outcome while respecting the patient's needs and desires.
