Focus Under Forty CME Courses - Since 2009, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), Conquer Cancer Foundation, and the LIVESTRONG Foundation, utilizing partial funding from a CDC grant, have partnered to develop and offer Focus Under Forty an education curriculum for healthcare professionals. This curriculum series (currently 11 courses) is designed to build awareness of and provide training to address the challenges and unique issues involved in treating adolescent and young adults (AYAs ages 15-39) who have been diagnosed with cancer. Courses are offered free, online through ASCO University and through free podcasts on iTunes University.

The Focus Under Forty curriculum topic areas include cancer care, supportive care, role of the primary care provider, survivorship, diagnosis, treatment, fertility preservation issues for males and females, clinical trials, melanoma, breast cancer, and Hodgkin lymphoma. During 2013, two new self-assessment CME courses were added to this curriculum series: Cancer Risk Reduction Review and Cancer Survivor Care Review. These self-assessment courses are designed to help oncology professionals, including fellows, nurse practitioners and physician assistants assess their knowledge related to cancer risk reduction in the adolescent and young adult (AYA) population.  This review covers the major topic areas related to cancer prevention and supportive care in the medical oncology certification and comprehensive MOC exams and offers 25 self-assessment questions not included in ASCO-SEP®.

Fertility Preservation Videos for Oncology Care Providers
- Two new video shorts on discussing male and female fertility preservation were created by ASCO and the LIVESTRONG Foundation to raise the awareness of oncology care professionals about starting the conversation around fertility preservation with their patients before cancer treatment begins. The videos encourage care providers to be ready and able to assess and discuss reproductive risks and patient interest in fertility options. This initiative was also supported by CDC funding. The videos can be viewed by both provider and patients through ASCO YouTube.

Disparities in Cancer Care – Courses will launch in October 2013 - By October 2013, three free, new, accredited CME courses will be offered to address disparities in cancer. These will be made available for healthcare professionals in oncology, including fellows, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

Continuing Education (CE) for Nurses and Other Healthcare Professionals Currently Available - The LIVESTRONG Foundation offers free, accredited nursing education through collaborative sponsorships with two continuing education providers: Nurse Oncology Education Program (NOEP.org), which is affiliated with the Texas Nurses Association; and Nurse.com, a Gannett Company. Partnerships developed and offered continuing education (“CE”) opportunities around best practices for cancer care at no cost to nurses and other healthcare professionals.

NOEP Video CE Courses

  • At the Crossroads: Cancer in Ages 15-39 is a 1-contact hour accredited CE video course for nurses about the unique issues faced by adolescents and young adults (AYA) with cancer. NOEP and the LIVESTRONG Foundation reaccredited and continued to offer this course recognizing that nurses, no matter the field of practice, can positively affect treatment of adolescents and young adults affected by cancer. The videos are also available on NOEP's YouTube channel for those viewers not in need of CE.
  • Advancing Care: Cancer in Hispanic/Latino Populations is a 1-contact hour accredited CE video course about cancer issues experienced in the Hispanic/Latino population.

Nurse.com CE Courses for Nurses and Other Healthcare Professionals - During 2013 (mid-February through mid-August), the LIVESTRONG Foundation is sponsoring 10 free, accredited CE courses in partnership with Nurse.com. The CE initiative, Become the Bridge that Unites Patients and Survival, addresses disparities in cancer care that affect access and quality of care across different populations. This series of free, accredited (8 captured webinars and two print) CE courses is designed to help nurses learn about healthcare disparities, the populations most at risk and what they can do to help close the gap.
