If you’ve ever been to the Community Oncology Conference, you already know:

This is the one conference where you can bring your whole practice, and everyone will benefit.

Last year, thirty members from across our organization tuned in. Since the Conference is virtual again this year and free for health care professionals, I have encouraged all partner practices at OneOncology to take part in our field’s can’t-miss event.

The breadth of the subjects covered is one of the reasons the Community Oncology Conference is my favorite conference of the year. I love participating in all the tracks, and everyone has something to learn in their area of expertise.

One of the great things about having such a packed agenda is that our team can expand their horizons and learn new things. I encourage people to attend sessions outside of their area of expertise. If you are non-clinical, go learn what’s exciting in the clinical care side of our work. If you are clinical, go to the business or pharmacy sessions to broaden your scope of knowledge of the other departments. The Conference provides all of us the opportunity to become more well-rounded community oncology professionals.

Whether you plan to attend one or 100 conferences this year, the 2021 Community Oncology Conference on April 8-9 needs to be on your list.

The Best Oncology Conference of the Year

The 2021 Community Oncology Conference is a showcase of the resilience, resourcefulness, and innovation that makes community oncology the preferred setting for cancer treatment. At this year’s Conference, we share the lessons we’ve learned, the progress we’ve made, and the amazing new things we’re doing in 2021.

The 2021 COA Conference is two packed days of learning and networking with community oncology practices and allied professionals from across the country. Experts will be sharing insights on how to overcome the challenges faced daily — from providing care to patients, to keeping the doors of practices open, to what is driving drug prices, to integrating new technologies and treatments.

Highlights from the packed #COA2021 agenda include:

  • Washington, D.C. insiders and policymakers sharing their thoughts on the new Congress, the Biden administration, and future cancer policy
  • A deep dive into hospital drug prices and markups
  • An look at how employers are approaching cancer care and benefit design
  • How behavioral health care increases the quality of life for patients
  • Implementing major new coding and reimbursement changes

The Community Oncology Conference is the only conference developed by independent oncology providers, administrators, staff, pharmacists, nurses, and advocates to address the unique issues facing community oncology in the real world. It is filled with actionable intelligence and learnings.

Regardless of your professional role, you will hear and learn from others facing the same challenges you face, and you will take something back that benefits you from the virtual 2021 Community Oncology Conference on April 8-9. Join us!
