VIDEO: Dr. Hagop Kantarjian, MD, Chair and Professor in Leukemia at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and MD Anderson Physicians Network Symposium Chair, discusses this year's event.
There are numerous educational events that credentialed physicians, nurses and allied health personnel can participate in that are offered through MD Anderson and Physicians Network. Almost all of these educational events are approved for Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) credit.
Multidisciplinary Planning Conferences occur two or three times monthly, and we welcome your participation.
To facilitate clinical collaboration in the care of patients prospectively (ideally before treatment is initiated) at Physicians Network Affiliate Sites; and to discuss the multidisciplinary treatment options for those patients with MD Anderson faculty.
The MD Anderson Clinical Guidelines form the basis for the multidisciplinary treatment planning process. These guidelines are disease site and stage specific, evidence based with references and supported by expert opinion.
For disease sites where no MD Anderson clinical guidelines exist, National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines will be used.
The guideline update videoconferences are designed to educate the physicians and clinical staff at Physicians Network Affiliate sites on the latest changes and updates to the MD Anderson Clinical Guidelines. The expected outcome is that physicians will utilize these guidelines in their clinical practice as a resource in the treatment planning process for patients. Physicians who participate in these videoconferences are eligible to receive up to two Category I AMA PRA CME credits and nurses who document their participation will receive 1.0 nursing content hour of CNE.
