2018 Scofield Advanced Oncology Nursing Conference

This premiere conference will feature a diverse group of speakers including nationally renowned experts from University of Iowa HealthCare and City of Hope National Medical Center in Duarte, CA. On the first day, we will welcome Betty Ferrell, Ph.D., M.A., F.A.A.N., F.P.C.N., a well-known oncology nursing leader from the City of Hope who will discuss the IOM report on delivering high quality care and how it relates to cancer care. Tuesday will also include insightful updates on pharmaceutical and innovative non-pharmaceutical strategies for managing cancer-related pain and other symptoms, new oncology treatment agents, and “chemo brain”, a neurological phenomenon. Dr. Ben Miller and patient “Parker” will also share their experiences and expertise on the topic of treating and surviving sarcoma.

Wednesday presentations will include interesting discussions on current political issues affecting access and payment for cancer care in the United States, the unique challenges when working with the adolescent and young adult oncology patient populations, and cancer in the age of social media. Day 2 will also include a discussion on hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) as a possible treatment option for colon/appendiceal cancers, and haplo-transplants. In the closing session, Jared Reichbaum will provide inspiration to the audience as he describes his “Walk Across Amarrowca” mission to encourage people to join the bone marrow registry “Be the Match”.
