Oncology 102: An In-Depth Hematology and Oncology Review for Advanced Practice Providers (Virtual Conference) Fall 2024

October 24, 2024 to October 26, 2024

- This conference will be a virtual (online) event. -

Overview

The demand for cancer care is expected to increase by 40% over the next six years; however, ASCO is projecting a shortage of more than 2,200 oncologists by 2025. To meet the cancer care needs of all patients, advanced practice providers (APPs), whose education and training focus on health promotion, disease prevention, and primary care medical management, have been increasingly sought-after to fill this shortage. However, many new APPs have little background and training in oncology. As a result, oncology practices need to provide new staff with an onboarding program to help further their knowledge of hematology and oncology.

To assist APPs in their new careers in oncology-based practices, Horizon CME, in partnership with APAO, has developed “Oncology 102: An In-Depth Hematology and Oncology Review for Advanced Practice Providers.” In this two-and-a-half-day virtual program, clinicians will gain a greater understanding of cancer treatment, cancer therapies, side effects, supportive care strategies, palliative care, and more. Expert faculty will provide a detailed review of treatment strategies for hematologic disorders and solid malignancies. Participation in the program will allow APPs to build upon the foundational knowledge acquired in Oncology 101 and provide APPs with a deeper understanding of the cancer treatment strategies they need to support and care for cancer patients as part of the multidisciplinary oncology care team.

This program is appropriate for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and pharmacists in hematology/oncology seeking an in-depth review of cancer treatment strategies and therapies.
