More than ever, advanced practice providers are taking a more active role with their patients throughout the cancer care continuum. This expanded role has led to a need to improve clinical practice and develop a better understanding of optimizing care for individuals. Advanced practice providers must stay abreast of treatment advances and their integration into clinical practice as well as the ever changing health care climate.
Scripps Cancer Center’s Advanced Practice Oncology Providers Symposium is designed for nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, physician assistants, and other experienced health care professionals dedicated to the field of hematology-oncology. This newly designed two day conference aims to update advanced practice providers on a wide variety of topics affecting practice today. The 2013 program will delve into the biology of ALK inhibitors, mutation-directed therapies in melanoma, photodynamic therapy, PTSD in the oncology environment, and nutrition and exercise for cancer patients.
