Online Education through NCCN Now Available
NCCN recently launched the NCCN Continuing Education Portal online learning management system. The mission of NCCN's Continuing Education Program is to improve patient outcomes in oncology by educating clinicians on the application of evidence-based medicine. Our accredited educational activities are designed for oncologists (in both community and academic settings), nurses, pharmacists, case managers, and other health care professionals involved in the care of patients with cancer.
The content of our activities focuses on the professional scope of patient care, as continually identified through analysis of professional knowledge and practice gaps, as well as educational needs. Our activities achieve results measured through documented increases in learners' knowledge, competence and performance.
We offer activities in a number of formats including live conferences and symposia, live webinars, online webcasts, flash drives, and journal supplements/monographs appearing in JNCCN — Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. Presentations address a wide range of learning styles, often combining dynamic lectures, interactive group discussions and case studies that allow participants to interact with faculty and provide many opportunities for question and answer encounters with presenters.
Through this system, learners are able register for live courses, participate in free online CE, search for courses in specific interest areas, receive electronic certificates automatically, and track all NCCN CE with a personalized transcript. Current programs available include archived materials from the NCCN 17th Annual Conference and the NCCN Task Force Report: Evaluating the Clinical Utility of Tumor Markers in Oncology.
