CTCA to offer PC CME course in Newnan on 2/25
Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is encouraging physicians to register for an ‘Advancements in Cancer Management in Primary Care’ CME course that it will host at the Southeastern Regional Medical Center in Newnan on Saturday, February 25.
CTSA explains that, “The demand for cancer care is predicted to increase by 40 percent during the next 20 years, whereas the number of oncologists will grow by only 25 percent…[this means that] there will be a gap in which the primary care provider will play a larger role in a patient’s oncology care team.”
CTCA says the course is an “educational forum designed to foster dialogue between primary care providers (PCPs) and the oncology team and to provide strategies that contribute to integrative cancer care for patients. Topics such as screening and diagnosis, managing comorbidities and treatment-related side effects, immunotherapy, pain management and palliative care and survivorship will be covered for PCPs to expand their knowledge and transform their practices in cancer care.”
The event will get underway at 7:30 a.m., and it is scheduled to conclude by 1 p.m. A complimentary breakfast will be available beginning at 7 a.m.
