Target Audience and Needs

Clinical and research faculty, graduate and medical students, clinical and postdoctoral fellows, and research nurses in pediatric hematology-oncology need to be regularly updated on the latest data from clinical trials in pediatric patients with hematological-oncological disorders, on the advances in the development of targeted therapies, on the developments in ethical/legal issues related to end of life care, and on the new practice standards for follow-up care for long-term survivors. The series aims to increase knowledge and skills of the learners in these topic areas in order to enhance the quality of care, increase patient safety, and improve patient outcomes.


Educational Methods

Educational methods will include lectures, case presentations, literature review, and panel discussion.

  • Evaluate drug development in pediatric cancers and blood disorders.
  • Analyze and interpret the significance of long-term survivorship issues in pediatric cancer and hematologic disorders.
  • Develop an understanding of how QI cycles can be applied to a specific and common clinical problem.
  • Learn how to improve communication between clinical teams in different medical settings.
