The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the MD Anderson Cancer Network Symposium - Clinical Program: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Individualized Patient Care and Nursing Excellence: Navigating the Changing Landscape of Oncology Nursing is organized by The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and will be held from Oct 12 - 13, 2019 at Marriott Marquis Houston, Houston, Texas, United States of America.
This symposium will be beneficial to Medical Oncologists, Surgical Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, General Surgeons, Internists, Researchers, Physician Assistants, Oncology Nurses and Advanced Practice Nurses.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center designates this live activity for a maximum of 17.00 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The presentation, Increasing HPV Vaccine Confidence and Understanding HPV Vaccine Efficacy and Indications, has been designated by The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for a total of .25 AMA PRA Category CreditsTM in medical ethics and/or professional responsibility.
ABIM Maintenance of Certification:
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 17 Medical Knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
Clinical Program: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Individualized Patient Care
A multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of patients diagnosed with cancer has been the key for delivering high quality of care. A tsunami created by rapidly expanding knowledge in tumor molecular biology and immunology, moreover, new molecular approaches have enabled the development of therapeutics that target specific oncogenic mutations and immune checkpoints. This constant evolution has maintained a dynamic relationship with the disciplines - surgical, radiation therapy and medical oncology- modulating the approach in an individualized patient care. The advances and emerging data is much needed in community settings in order to deliver quality care and to improve patient outcomes.
After attending the symposium, participants should be able to:
• Provide a multidisciplinary approach in the management of melanoma patients (Knowledge, Competence);

Nursing Excellence: Navigating the Changing Landscape of Oncology Nursing"
The Nursing Excellence program focuses on current clinical topics across the continuum of oncology care. After attending this educational activity, the registered nurse will self-report an understanding of patient navigation practices in oncology, principles of cancer genetics and appropriate risk assessment, administration and management of immunotherapy and biosimilars, best practices in cancer care, ethical considerations in oncology, oncologic emergencies management, updates in head and neck cancer treatment, and the use of integrative medicine in oncology. The program will provide an opportunity to collaborate with MD Anderson Cancer Network and national colleagues and the potential to earn up to 13.75 nursing contact hours.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is an approved provider with commendation of continuing nursing education by the Texas Nurses Association – Approver, an accredited approver with distinction, by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
Nurses may earn upto 13.75 contact hours for both days.
