CRANBURY, N.J.--Physicians’ Education Resource® (PER®), the leading resource for oncology and hematology continuing medical education (CME), will offer oncology nurses credits to apply toward their Individual Learning Needs Assessment (ILNA) during the School of Nursing Oncology conference, Aug. 4-5, 2017, at the Lowes Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.
“PER® is thrilled to expand its oncology and hematology CME offerings by presenting ILNA credits during the 1st Annual School of Nursing Oncology,” said PER® President Phil Talamo. “Keeping in mind the ever-changing world of oncology nursing, we aim to discuss the emerging treatment options and newest case studies to help nurses now and in the future.”
ILNA is a primary certification renewal method for nurses. This renewal method ensures that certified nurses have the most current knowledge to apply in the field. To successfully complete the assessment, candidates are required to complete one or more development activities such as CME academic education, publications or presentations.
Dedicated topics for the two-day event will include gastrointestinal (GI) cancer case discussion, key concepts and management strategies in GI cancer, clinical foundations of gynecologic cancer, updates in leukemia and lymphoma, management of toxicities associated with immunotherapy, and lung cancer essentials for oncology nurses.
