The Consortium in Action: A Presentation from The Survivorship Action Team
NYS CANCER SURVIVORSHIP: IMPROVING CARE, BOLSTERING OUR WORKFORCE
The Cancer Survivorship Action team will provide an overview of models of care in cancer survivorship and a framework to support care delivery systems. We will review our ongoing projects, including education and future training opportunities. We will discuss our ongoing pilot Advanced Practice Provider (APP) training program that offers opportunities for APPs to rotate among rural and urban settings, including member institutions (Columbia University, Bassett Health, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center), and our upcoming Project ECHO with opportunities for training primary care provider teams about cancer survivorship.

Participation with the NYS Cancer Consortium since its inception has strengthened my commitment and provided me with colleagues and resources to ensure that diverse communities throughout NYS have the highest quality of cancer care.
