The 2nd Annual School of Nursing Oncology™ will provide the latest information on key topics in oncology that can readily be applied to nursing clinical practice in a variety of settings. Our faculty will discuss strategies help to optimize patient management and provide insight into the evolving treatment landscape. Nursing professionals frequently encounter barriers to the optimal delivery of care for patients with cancer, and this program is designed to answer questions in a manner that will facilitate the overcoming of those barriers. This will be a dynamic experience, allowing participants to engage with faculty as they share their perspectives and personal experiences on clinical challenges commonly encountered in nursing practice. A variety of formats will be used to generate an exciting learning environment, including a mixture of didactic presentations, interactive discussion, and case-based learning opportunities.
This educational program is directed toward nurses interested in the management of patients with cancer. Other health care professionals interested in the management of patients with cancer are also invited to attend.
