Behind the Guidelines: Insights into the Standard of Care in Oncology 2021
Each month, the NCCN Guidelines® Insights will be published in JNCCN – Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
The goal of this project is to ensure that members of the interprofessional oncology care team, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other relevant health care professionals, have the knowledge and skills necessary to understand how and why important decisions are made in the development of NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®), and apply this information to clinical decision pathways in oncology.
This educational series of articles is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, nurses, pharmacists and other health care professionals who manage patients with cancer.
Following this program, participants should be able to:
- Integrate into professional practice the updates to NCCN Guidelines.
- Describe the rationale behind the decision-making process for developing the NCCN Guidelines.
