Monthly Oncology Tumor Boards
The NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) are a set of step-by step evidence-based, consensus-driven recommendations to ensure that patients receive preventive, diagnostic, treatment, and supportive services that are most likely to lead to optimal outcomes. The NCCN recommendations are applicable to about 95% of patients. Clinicians need to consider the current clinical status of the patient, including general health, disease specifics, concomitant conditions, current and previous therapies, and the patient’s preferences when applying the guidelines to ensure optimal care for the individual. The multidisciplinary team discusses how to best apply appropriate standard of care including identifying circumstances where appropriate management requires adapting the NCCN Guidelines® to the needs of the individual. This activity series will discuss the specific recommendations in the NCCN Guidelines as well as unique patient circumstances that impact how the guidelines might be best applied.
NCCN will offer a series of twelve multidisciplinary case-based webinars on the management of patients with various cancer types: acute myeloid leukemia, B-cell lymphomas, bladder cancer, brain cancer, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, melanoma, multiple myeloma, non-small cell lung cancer, ovarian cancer, and renal cell carcinoma.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals who manage patients with cancer.
The goal of this project is to ensure that members of the multidisciplinary oncology team, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other relevant healthcare professionals, have the knowledge and skills necessary to:
- Apply the current standards of oncology care and NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) 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 in the management of patients with cancer.
