Over the next decade, there is projected to be a significant shortage of both oncologists and surgeons to meet the needs of the aging US populations. To help offset the growing workforce demands, more Advanced Practice Providers (APPs, including physician assistants and nurse practitioners) are being employed in surgical oncology practice to care for patients afflicted with solid tumors. In order to enable the best possible patient outcomes, it is critical that cancer care professionals are apprised of these latest advances in treatment and management, as well as understand and implement best practice models to optimize team-based cancer care. This activity is geared specifically towards the educational needs of surgery APPs that care for cancer patients. However; the content is appropriate for those practicing in multiple oncology disciplines, and thus the target audience includes physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physicians in general practice, and other healthcare professionals in either private practice or academic settings.
After attending the conference, participants should be able to:
- Describe recent advances in the surgical management of solid tumors originating from the following organ and/or disease sites: brain, spine, oropharynx, lung, breast, stomach, colon, rectum, liver, pancreas, prostate, kidney, ovary, skin, and bones.
- Describe fundamentals of solid tumor imaging, and how to review and interpret pertinent findings from computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the head, neck, and abdomen.
- Examine and illustrate the changing role of the advanced practice professionals in the delivery of oncology care for surgical patients.
- Case Presentations
- Question and Answer Session
- Panel Discussion

A course evaluation link will provide participants with the opportunity to comment on the value of the program content to their practice decisions, performance improvement activities, or possible impact on patient health status. Participants will also have the opportunity to comment on any perceived commercial bias in the presentations as well as to identify future educational topics.
