You’re always looking for opportunities to develop and advance in your career. Banner Health is committed to helping you do just that. Join Banner Health’s Santosh Rao, MD, Staff Physician at Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center for the presentation: Concept of Integrative Oncology and Cancer Prevention.
Oncology care is very complex for patients and staff. Care coordination for optimal patient outcomes necessitates not only coordination of care between the patient and the multiple providers, but also an understanding of the type of care that is available. Gaining a better understanding of an integrated approach for the oncology patients is important for this coordinated and holistic care. This presentation will provide education on the integrated approach that is now available to many patients. The overall outcome is to ensure providers/staff are supportive of the patients’ unique medical and personal needs by becoming more knowledgeable about integrated oncology.
