2016 NCCN Oncology Case Manager and Medical Director Program™ - Distress Management: Implementing New Standards of Care
The 2016 NCCN Case Manager and Medical Director Program Live Webinar Series will consist of six webinars on the topics of colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, distress management, CML, ovarian cancer, and multiple myeloma. This educational series is designed to help case managers and medical directors manage patients with cancer based on evidence and according to the recommendations in the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®).
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of case managers, nurses in other roles (i.e., quality management and utilization review), medical directors at managed care organizations, reinsurers, TPAs, and case management and disease management companies who interact with, counsel, and refer patients with cancer to appropriate sources of care and/or make coverage decisions. Programs may also be of interest to nurses, nurse navigators/care coordinators, and physicians who work directly with patients in clinical settings as well as clinical pharmacists in managed care organizations and other settings.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Discuss the prevalence of distress in patients with cancer
- Recognize the need for brief validated measures to assess distress in patients with cancer
- Summarize best practices in psychosocial care that oncology teams can provide to patients and caregivers

The ACCME/ANCC/ACPE defines “conflict of interest” as when an individual has an opportunity to affect CE content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.
ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC focuses on financial relationships with commercial interests in the 12-month period preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the CE activity. ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC have not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be significant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship. The ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC defines “’relevant’ financial relationships” as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest.
