Individuals diagnosed with cancer experience psychosocial or emotional distress to some degree.

Workshop W-03 – Advanced Practice Nursing Skill Building
(in collaboration with APN SIG)

Please join us for our first national CANO Advanced Practice Nursing (APN) workshop.  The focus of this workshop will be on practical topics, building of hands on skills, along with engaging with your APN colleagues from across Canada. Begin by learning to how to approach and interpret common findings on chest x-rays and CT scans. This practical skill build will leave you with improved radiology confidence and is suitable for novice or experienced APNs.  We then will move into a case based approach to assessment and management of Immuno-oncology PD-1 and PD-L1 inhibitors. Finally, we will end with a world café where we hope to learn more about the Canadian landscape of APN practice. This workshop is geared for CNS and NPs with varied levels of experience.  You will leave with practical tools and an opportunity to build your Canadian network of colleagues.
