11th Annual “GREAT STRIDES TOGETHER” with Rapid Integration Course

flasco logo

The Great Strides Together program is a 1-day multi facility represented and planned meeting that includes continuing medical education credits designed for oncology physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, residents and fellows, as well as other healthcare professionals involved in the management of cancer patients. The Great Strides Together program is well established in the state of Florida.  Based on evaluations from the previous 10 consecutive years, this meeting has been able to deliver a state-of-the-art educational experience with an added theme of Team and hence, provide healthcare professionals with the tools to offer the best quality of care to their patients. The overall theme of this conference is Team and how the physician and the support staff work together to provide the best care for the patient.  When possible, we ask that the sessions be presented together with the physician, Advanced Provider Professional, and if possible a nurse.  We believe it is important to include in each presentation how the physician and team work together and the benefits this provides to all. 

Dr. Winston Tan from Mayo Clinic Florida developed the educational initiative, Rapid Integration Course for  PAs and NPs in Hematology/Oncology.  Dr. Tan recognized that APPs are increasingly an important component of the oncology practice. Every year there are new practitioners that enter the practice without a systemic orientation course that would allow basic, practical and rapid integration into Florida practices.  His mission was to develop a course that will include teaching basic skills that are important for a new practitioner in an hematology-oncology practice that will lead to rapid integration into the oncology workforce.
