Background

As immuno-oncology (IO) continues to be more fully integrated into cancer practices across the country, oncology advanced practice providers (APPs) are taking on a growing role in IO patient care. This multidisciplinary group of providers, however, may be underrepresented in IO-specific education activities. As such, we examined the results of an online survey to assess how IO knowledge, behaviors, and challenges for oncology APPs have changed over time, and how this group can be engaged in future educational initiatives.
