Recorded Presentations from the NCCN 2021 Virtual Oncology Fellows Program: New Horizons in Quality Cancer Care
The NCCN 2021 Virtual Oncology Fellows Program is a half-day informative and interactive program with clinical program content focusing on issues and tumor types that medical oncology fellows, surgical fellows, and radiation oncology residents confront on a daily basis. The program will provide an opportunity for early career physicians to understand the thought processes of experienced experts as they manage patient care and allow them to discuss the application of their training with some of the leading experts in the United States in a relatively small and informal setting.
The goal of this program is to educate future oncology practitioners about the application of the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) and other evidence-based treatment principles in the management of significant cancer types, and supportive care and professional development issues. In addition, it's to ensure that oncology fellows, as members of the interprofessional oncology care team, have the knowledge and skills necessary to apply the standards of care to their practice and health care setting for patients with cancer.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who manage patients with cancer.
Following this program, participants should be able to:
- Evaluate advances in the management of patients with cancer and key updates in the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) and apply appropriate treatment and supportive care strategies to optimize patient education and care.
- Review issues related to telemedicine and cancer care: lessons for the future; optimal management of VTE in cancer patients; survivorship: from AYA to older adults; multidisciplinary management of early-stage lung cancer; and, multidisciplinary treatment of prostate cancer; and the importance of mentorship.
