Course Overview
The goal of the summit is to foster collaboration, share best practices and provide a forum for peer-to-peer interaction among Advanced Practice Providers (APP) in clinical practice who are actively engaged in the care of oncology patients.  This summit will provide APP learners a broad overview of the latest developments and important current concepts in the multidisciplinary treatment of oncology patients.  Additionally, the summit offers an intimate learning environment to facilitate interaction between learners and faculty so that clinicians can discuss practical patient management issues and then apply their learning once they return to practice.

Intended Learners
Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Clinical Nurse Specialists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of oncology patients.

Activity session Understanding Biosimilars and How They Fit in Practice is supported by an independent medical education grant from Sandoz Inc., a Novartis Division.
