Enduring CME Activity From the June 15, 2020, Live Webcast: COVID-19 and Cancer Care: What Oncology Nurses Need to Know Today, A Webcast Series–Week 13

Release Date: June 18, 2020
Expiration Date: June 18, 2021

Activity Overview

The novel coronavirus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has rapidly become one of the most challenging public health crises in modern history. With millions of confirmed infections worldwide, including more than 2 million cases in the United States (as of June 16, 2020), 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?

This enduring CME activity is an archive of the live broadcast from June 15, 2020, featuring 4 oncology nurses who address the rapidly evolving issues clinicians face when treating patients with cancer.
