Cancer Survivorship NEW E-Learning Series for Primary Care Providers

In collaboration with the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the George Washington University Cancer Institute (GWCI) is launching the Cancer Survivorship NEW E-Learning Series, for Primary Care Providers.  The E-Learning Series is designed to heighten the awareness of the ongoing needs of cancer survivors, gives primary care providers free continuing education credits with first-hand patient experiences, presentations by national leaders on survivorship issues, and case studies. The series is an integral part of the National Cancer Survivorship Resource Center and will be available to a range of health care providers including general medicine physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses who practice in a variety of primary care settings.

The series is free and addresses the current state of cancer survivorship.  Modules focus on the role of clinical generalists and specialists in providing follow-up care, how to manage long-term and late medical and psychosocial effects of cancer and its treatment, and the importance of survivorship care planning.  Please share this information with your coalition members and stakeholders. For additional information please contact Mandi Pratt-Chapman, M.A., Associate Director of Community Programs George Washington Cancer email:, telephone: 202-994-5502.
