Minding the Behind: Anal Cancer Epidemiology and Screening

September 14, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM CDT

Program Description:
As HIV care providers, understanding your patients’ risk for anal cancer and current recommendations for screening HIV positive and negative individuals can be very confusing! Attend this interactive training to gain an understanding of our current knowledge base about anal cancer epidemiology and screening and gain an understanding of the evidence at hand, the natural history of anal cancer, high risk populations for anal cancer, how to screen, when to appropriately refer patients for further diagnostic testing, and the current gaps that are present in our knowledge base about this rapidly changing topic.

Presenters:

  • Brian Hilgeman, MD, AAHIVS (he/him/his), Assistant Professor of Medicine, Medical College of Wisconsin
  • Alan Nyitray, PhD (he/they), Associate Professor of Epidemiology, Medical College of Wisconsin
  • Sarah Lundeen, RN, MSN, ACNP (she/her/hers), Nurse Practitioner, Division of Colorectal Surgery, Medical College of Wisconsin

Learning Objectives:

  • Utilize the natural history of anal HPV infection to understand the rationale for screening and prevention of anal cancer
  • Understand current epidemiology of anal cancer risk in different high-risk populations and the sensitivity and specificity of cytology and HPV testing to detect high-grade lesions of the anal canal
  • Understand limitations and evidence gaps in current recommendations for anal cancer screening
  • Know how to properly complete a digital anorectal exam and anal PAP smear and when it is appropriate to refer for sub-specialist management

Intended Audience:
Physicians, physicians assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, epidemiologists, researchers, and those involved in HIV clinical care.
