Cancer at the Two Ends of the Life Span

Adolescents and young adults (AYAs) with cancer have unique needs that must be addressed to ensure that optimal care is provided as they move through the diagnostic, treatment, and survivorship trajectory. How can you provide care in a culturally-appropriate way for AYAs? How do you deal with the developmental demands of patients who are "too young" to have cancer and who have little to no experience of illness due to their age? At the other end of the spectrum, how can you provide exemplary care to geriatric patients with a number of age-related comorbidities? How can you involve their adult children who have their own age-related illnesses, often including their own cancer diagnoses? Listen as two experts in these diverse populations will educate, challenge, and identify gaps in knowledge and existing evidence.

Cancer and Emergency Medicine: A Unified and Evidence-Based Approach to Emergency Care
What acute events bring your patients with cancer to the emergency department (ED)? How do we adequately triage and manage patients with cancer in busy EDs with competing critically ill patients? What models of care can potentially minimize cancer-related emergencies? Discuss the who and why around ED use among patients with cancer, the gaps in cancer care guidelines in the ED, and examples of emerging models of emergency care. You’ll explore the role of the oncology nurse in clinical and translational research to improve the outcomes of patients requiring emergency services.

Clinic Rounds: Venous Access Devices

Nursing management of venous access devices (VADs) requires knowledge of current evidence, as well as knowledge of situations where evidence is lacking. Do you know which practices we do based on evidence and which we do based on history and preference? You’ll be presented with complex complications and the controversies associated with them. You'll also learn important strategies for identification of issues, learn troubleshooting techniques, and evaluate the evidence related to lack of blood return, scope of practice issues, access and maintenance protocols, and emergency management.
