Recorded Presentations from the NCCN 2021 Virtual Annual Conference
The NCCN 2021 Annual Conference is designed to fill real and important medical educational needs of cancer care providers to improve the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of cancer care so that patients can live better lives. The Annual Conference focuses on the practical management of patients with cancer, provides updates of NCCN Guidelines, and includes other educational sessions on new treatments, therapies, and trends, and their application in patient care. As knowledge about the management of cancer is being developed more rapidly and has become more complex, education on treatment decisions has become increasingly important and valuable. We are excited that the NCCN 2021 Annual Conference will include multiple format changes that will focus on additional stakeholder groups, enhance the learner experience, and increase the interaction with key NCCN faculty.
The program is designed to meet the needs and improve the competence and performance of the interprofessional oncology care team, including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, and other relevant health care professionals who manage the care of patients with cancer.
The goal of the NCCN 2021 Annual Conference is to ensure that members of the interprofessional oncology care team, including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, and other relevant health care professionals, have the knowledge and skills necessary to:
- Apply the current standards of oncology care and key updates in the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) to optimize the management of patients with cancer.
- Evaluate new, emerging, and novel therapeutic agents and treatment strategies and incorporate these into the management of patients with cancer.
- Communicate with members of the interprofessional oncology care team to improve collaborative performance in the management of patients with cancer and the delivery of oncology care.
