The National Academy of Medicine report, The Future of Nursing 2020-2030: Charting a Path to Achieve Health Equity, challenges nursing leaders and other stakeholders both within and outside of health care to prioritize addressing the structural inequities that have fueled persistent health disparities. The report lays out a series of recommendations to help meet the need for a stronger, more diversified nursing workforce that is prepared to provide care and promote health and well-being among nurses, individuals, and communities. Key takeaways from the report and discussion on how urologic nurses can help to advance the report recommendations will be presented in the session.

Workup of Adrenal Masses


Thomas Cangiano, MD

Adrenal masses are present in 5%-10% of all individuals and the gross majority are benign. Most adrenal masses are found incidentally on abdominal imaging performed for unrelated reasons. Occasionally, patients present with symptoms of a functional tumor and an adrenal mass is discovered as part of the workup. This session will discuss the diagnostic workup of adrenal masses which consists of blood tests, sometimes urine tests, and imaging to determine if the adrenal mass is producing hormones and if it has suspicious imaging features.
