ACCC 37th [Virtual] National Oncology Conference


The leading conference for innovation in care delivery went virtual! Registrants elevated their perspective and discovered pioneering ideas that addressed the challenges of providing cancer care in our new reality at the ACCC 37th National Oncology Conference. Continue to access these transformative presentations, practical takeaways, and collaborative discussions from the comfort of your office or home.

After the challenges we’ve faced this year, it was more important than ever to take the time to recognize and learn from our successes. That’s why a major focus of our first virtual meeting was the 2020 ACCC Innovator Award Winners—a select group of Cancer Program Members that demonstrate significant achievements in enhancing oncology care. Winners presented their groundbreaking strategies in cancer care delivery throughout this five-day virtual conference.

Selected by a group of their peers, these forward-thinking ACCC Cancer Program Members shared actionable strategies that brought their innovations to fruition and offered practical takeaways for tailoring a similar innovation at your cancer program or practice.

Alternative Payment Models in Cancer Care Workshop

As part of ACCC’s new Alternative Payment Model Coalition, we hosted a three-hour virtual workshop after the last session of #ACCCNOC that took a deep dive into the current landscape of alternative payment models—including OCMs, MIPS, ACOs, and more—to address concerns about lack of preparation to perform in these payment models, patient and provider access to the latest treatments, infrastructure considerations, and long-term sustainability. Participants learned from experts in the field, as well as their peers, through a program which incorporated didactic presentations and interactive breakout sessions.

Learning Objectives

After participating in the ACCC 37th [Virtual] National Oncology Conference, participants will be better able to:

  • Review leadership strategies to enhance resilience among teams and organizations in response to adversities and to review strategies to improve the quality of cancer care
  • Integrate innovative approaches for onboarding experienced non-oncology nurses to address staffing shortages
  • Use targeted management algorithms to identify patient co-morbidities aiming to reduce hospital and emergency department admissions
  • Discuss the benefits of creating and implementing a collaborative pharmacist practice agreement to improve oral oncolytic workflow and reduce treatment delays
  • Explore the use of a 3D-printed lung nodule educational tool to help providers educate patients, reduce distress, and engage in shared decision-making
  • Outline approaches to implement a nurse navigator-led community-based cardio-oncology clinic to manage cardio-toxic side effects in oncology patients and improve patient quality of life
  • Identify clinical variables associated with increased risk of hospital and emergency department admissions using predictive modeling and proactively manage patients to reduce readmissions after chemotherapy
  • Adapt a transition plan to administer chemotherapy in the outpatient setting to improve care, lower infection rates, improve quality of life, and reduce cost of care
  • Investigate the role of prehab, rehab, and prospective surveillance in improving patient experience, reducing hospital stay, early identification of physical impairments, functional limitations, and/or treatment restrictions, and in palliative care for patients with advanced cancer
  • Examine strategies to address the disparities faced by women in oncology
