As part of ASCO’s work to reduce the global burden of cancer, the Society is collaborating with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) to expand its NCD Academy to include a cancer course. The NCD Academy, which is geared toward primary care physicians, aims to boost screening for and prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
The cancer course, “Cancer Care: Insights for Primary Care Providers,” developed with ASCO, is intended to hone the clinical skills for primary health care providers to be an active participant in cancer prevention and management by explaining how the disease evolves and portraying interactive patient cases.
Latest courses, like all NCD Academy content, are available for free to all health care providers worldwide via the NCD Academy app and website.
The academy is part of ACC’s Global Prevention Program, which is established in nine countries at this time (Argentina, Egypt, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam), with a reach of approximately 70,000 clinicians and 69 million patients.
