Recorded Presentations from the NCCN 2022 Pharmacy Updates Webinar Series
The availability of new therapeutic options and emergence of novel therapies continues to dramatically impact the oncology landscape. The rapid integration of these agents into treatment for various tumor types can be challenging for clinicians. Pharmacists are critical to educating the interprofessional oncology care team about the actions and potential adverse events associated with new and existing therapeutic options. Pharmacists also have an important role in patient education, as well as subsequent monitoring and management of treatment-related toxicities.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of pharmacists, physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other health care professionals who manage patients with cancer.
The goal of this program is to ensure that pharmacists, physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other members of the interprofessional oncology care team who manage patients with cancer have the knowledge and skills necessary to:
- Apply the current standards of oncology care and NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology to optimize the management of patients with various cancer types
- Review new, emerging, and novel therapeutic agents and treatment strategies and incorporate these into the management of patients with cancer
- Communicate the importance of a multidisciplinary approach and improve the collaborative performance of the interprofessional oncology care team in the management of patients with cancer
