2017 NCCN Case Manager and Medical Director Program: Cancer 101

September 25, 2017

Join Michael Ka Keu Wong, MD, PhD,  The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center as he presents Cancer 101.

As multidisciplinary cancer care teams become increasingly common, it is important for all members of the care team—including case managers, nurses, pharmacists, and primary care physicians—to understand the basics of cancer biology, diagnosis, and treatment in order to best care for their patients. Informed healthcare providers at all levels can help facilitate smooth communication between a patient with cancer and their healthcare team by answering questions and providing support and resources. In turn, informed healthcare providers can also better communicate important information to other key members of the healthcare team so that the team overall can provide the best possible care.

Target Audience

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.
