  3. A Chef’s Husbands View

  4. What’s changing that will require pathologists to transform? • Patients • Primary Care Physicians • How Care is Delivered & By Whom • Technology

  5. What does the consumer want? • High quality • Convenience • Fast & accurate information • Trust & confidence

  6. What does the patient’s treating physician want? Help! • Fast and accurate results • Understandable and useful information • Direction on therapy

  7. …and sometimes that primary care provider isn’t a physician “Nurse practitioners with master’s degrees are already filling the primary care shortages and providing quality, cost-effective care, many times in places that physicians are unwilling to practice.” Wendy Vogel Nurse Practitioner, Oncology Blue Ridge Medical Specialists, TN WSJ, April 2, 2008

  8. Patients & physicians want a full course meal, not just the appetizer Surveillance Treatment Monitoring Has my cancer come back? Treatment Selection Is my therapy working with acceptable toxicity? Prognosis & Staging What are the most effective & safe therapies for me? Differential Diagnosis Has my cancer spread and how aggressive is it? Screening Risk Assessment Do I have cancer today and what type is it? Is there a chance I have cancer today? Am I at risk of developing cancer?

  9. Are we defining our contribution to patient care too narrowly? “…but all I know how to do are liver biopsies!”

  10. What barriers exist? • Payment • Information • Technology (e.g., gene patents) • Lack of agreement on integrating role • Education • Lack of interoperability; software issues, security issues • Mindsets

  11. Are we responsible for the appetizer or the whole enchilada?

  12. Pathologists have the opportunity to fulfill many roles • Innovator • Test Provider • Interpreter • Data Integrator • Clinical Consultant

  13. Pathologists have the necessary ingredients to provide answers, but…

  14. … it’s not about the tools

  15. The Perfect Dish requires the right mindset • Have an open mind to new ideas, technologies, and ways of practice • Acknowledge market forces driving changes in your practice • Engage the change • Be life long learners • Develop new skills and leverage core knowledge

  16. Interact with patients and other clinicians • Broaden your sphere of influence • Expand beyond the tissue on the slide—all diagnostic tools are available to you • Market your services for consults • Expand value by influencing prognosis and treatment …be a part of the treatment team

  17. “Students need to learn how to think critically, how to argue opposing ideas. It is important for them to learn how to think. You can always cook.” ~ Charlie Trotter
