Primary care providers are seeing an increasing number of cancer survivors in their practices. They are more likely than oncologists to manage chronic pain, address psychosocial concerns and refer appropriately to hospice. However, general medical training in cancer primarily focuses on the acute phase in the inpatient setting. This year’s conference will present evidence-based approaches primary care providers can incorporate into their practice to ensure that patients living with advanced cancer receive the high quality care they deserve.

Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive telehealth lecture with Jenny Hanspal, RN, BNS, OCN, and Cindy Rogers. They will discuss and share those resources that they find to be most helpful for cancer patients, during and after treatment. They will also provide tips on finding credible cancer information on the internet. Lunch and Learn lectures are geared toward cancer patients, survivors, family, friends, and care givers/supports but anyone interested in learning more about cancer is welcome to join us. Every lecture has a question and answer (Q & A) section at the end so feel free to ask the presenters for clarification or more information! While these lectures are viewable online, we recommend watching them at one of our Lunch and Learn sites. Please contact us for more information and for assistance locating a site near you.
