Best of Community Cancer Care - October 13, 2022

West Palm Beach, FL US

Community practitioners have reported that an overwhelming amount of clinical information available for cancer therapies was a significant acute and chronic knowledge and competency gap and reiterated the need for additional education on new classes of drugs, updated clinical practice guidelines, side effect management, supportive care services, quality improvement strategies, and optimizing healthcare delivery. Community clinicians often cannot travel to large national conferences, warranting the need for local and regional programs to educate them on the most recent clinical data presented. 

Target Audience

Oncology physicians, oncology nurses, oncology pharmacists, cancer program and practice directors/ managers/ administrators, hospital executives, patient navigators, financial advocates, and social workers.  

 

 

Learning Objectives

  •  Review highlights of the advances in clinical and translational research presented at recent national clinical conferences  
  • Provide opportunities for discussion with leading oncology experts on translation of new investigational clinical and operational updates into patient care strategies 
  •  Establish collaborations between community oncology clinicians and cancer program administrators to address challenges of integrating new data into practice  
  • Evaluate tools and resources in specific areas of cancer management that can be used to achieve effective cancer care delivery and improve the patient experience
