Welcome to the Advanced Practice Providers Oncology Summit, the CE conference devoted to providing the latest developments in the multidisciplinary treatment, practical patient management, and interprofessional care of oncology patients.

COVID-19 & Health Safety Precautions
Currently, this summit is planned to be delivered as a live, in-person conference.* In an effort to provide an environment where everyone feels safe and comfortable learning and socializing, we are requesting attendees provide at check-in proof of full vaccination or test results from a negative COVID-19 viral test taken no more than 3 days prior to the program. We recognize this is an added step in the return to in-person, face-to-face meetings but hope you understand that we are doing our best to ensure the safety of our staff and the attendees. We're so happy to have you back.

Documentation is requested to be in the form of a CDC vaccination card or directly from the healthcare provider that performed the test or vaccination. Attendees can display test results or proof of vaccination on their smartphone or present a physical copy. As we monitor the ever-evolving COVID-19 status, we will be following the protocols recommended by the Center for Disease (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and local health authorities to keep our conferences safe (see our safety protocols for complete details).

*In the rare instance that safety measures would bar us from having an in-person meeting, the summit will be held as a virtual (online) program on the same dates the in-person program would have been held. All attendees will be notified before the date of the conference.

Excellent. We’ll need to sort out a few details.

* How did you hear about this activity?
* Are you a Pharmaceutical/Medical Device Industry Employee?

*Space is limited. The reduced registration fee is in place for oncology clinicians who are active in the field and involved in the management of care for their oncology patients. Industry Employees, including employees with a clinical degree (NP, PharmD, MD, PA-C, etc), can register for credit by clicking "YES" as an Industry Employee. 

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PHARMACEUTICAL/MEDICAL DEVICE INDUSTRY EMPLOYEE WITH NON-CLINICAL DEGREES REGISTERING FOR APPOS (Not having a degree as an NP, PA, PharmD, RN, etc…) : In our efforts to ensure space for practicing clinicians, if you do not hold a clinical degree, your registration will be subject to the approval of our Medical Director and planning committee. As a CME conference, we need to ensure an appropriate balance of clinicians and Industry Personnel. Additionally, we also want to ensure that our Exhibitors have the maximum opportunity to interact with our attendees. Our Exhibitors paid a significant fee to support our conference and it would be unfair to them to have Industry Personnel circumventing the exhibit process.  
If your registration is not approved, you will receive a full refund. Thank you for your understanding and reverence to the conference Sponsors/Exhibitors.

ATTESTATION STATEMENT: I attest that as an attendee of the 2022 APP Oncology Summit in the role of Learner, I will not engage other attendees in detailing my company's products/services related to my role as a pharma/medical device industry employee.
