Live Webcast: COVID-19 and Cancer Care: What Oncologists Need to Know Today, A Webcast Series – Week 2

Live Webcast: COVID-19 and Cancer Care: What Oncologists Need to Know Today, A Webcast Series – Week 2

Monday, March 30, 2020

Live Webcast: 8:00 PM EDT

Activity Overview

The novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 infection is rapidly becoming one of the most challenging public health crises in modern history. With hundreds of thousands of cases confirmed worldwide, including more than 50,000 cases in the United States (as of 3/25/20), this virus has the potential to infect individuals of all ages.

However, older individuals and patients with underlying health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and pulmonary disorders, seem to be the most vulnerable to infection and to developing more severe illness. Patients with cancer must also be considered in this vulnerable and high-risk population.

But how is this pandemic specifically affecting cancer care, and what do clinicians need to know today to ensure they are providing the best care to their patients with cancer?

On March 23, 2020, 4 experts in cancer care came together to discuss some of the most pressing issues regarding caring for patients with cancer during this pandemic. This initial webcast was so impactful that PER® has decided to transform this into a regularly occurring series, held each Monday evening at 8 PM ET, and featuring new experts each week.

Participate in this ongoing live webcast series and join the discussion on this fast-moving topic.
