Cancer Survivorship Case Review Form

The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine approves this program for an additional 0.5 hour of AMA PRA Category I and Nursing continuing education credit for completing a case review form and presenting it during an ECHO clinic

Project ECHO Nevada, the Nevada Cancer Coalition, and the UNLV School of Medicine are pleased to offer Part 2 of the Cancer Survivorship ECHO series! This six-part Cancer Survivorship series will empower health care practitioners in Nevada to actively engage in their patients' cancer survivorship journey. Sessions will provide education on best practices to address late and long-term effects of cancer and cancer treatments, treatment preparation, and follow-up care. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to discuss patient cases with experts for feedback and treatment recommendations.

Cancer survivors are individuals living with and beyond cancer. They become survivors from the time of diagnosis through the remainder of their lives. Today, more than two-thirds of those diagnosed with cancer are told they can expect to live at least five years after diagnosis. According to the American Cancer Society, in Nevada there are currently an estimated 120,200 cancer survivors and in 2019, 14,810 people will be diagnosed with cancer. Our health-care system does not yet consistently support the delivery of coordinated care between primary care and oncology specialists. This series hopes to address survivors' ongoing needs with improved outcomes and quality of life for cancer survivors'.

If you would like to submit a case for review during one of our sessions, please use the Cancer Survivorship case review form.
