The Advanced Practice Providers (APP) Oncology Summit is a two-day continuing medical education event created with APPs, for APPs. The goal of this summit is to provide learners with a broad overview of the latest developments and important current concepts in the multidisciplinary treatment of oncology patients. We aim to foster collaboration, share best practices, and build a forum for peer-to-peer interaction among Advanced Practice Providers who are actively engaged in the care of oncology patients. The summit offers an intimate learning environment to facilitate interaction between learners and expert faculty, as well as create opportunities to discuss patient management issues and practical application in the clinic.
|In 2015, oncology Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) based in Portland, Oregon, contacted Horizon CME seeking to develop an accredited educational conference to facilitate peer to peer interaction, foster community networking, and collaborative learning among APP learners actively engaged in the care of oncology patients. As a result, the 1st Annual APP Oncology Summit was held in Portland, Oregon, in September 2015.|
