Cancer Survivorship E-Learning Series for Primary Care Providers

The Cancer Survivorship E-Learning Series for Primary Care Providers is a program of the National Cancer Survivorship Resource Center, a collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the George Washington University Cancer Institute funded through a 5-year cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Cancer Survivorship E-Learning Series is a free continuing education program that provides a forum to educate primary care providers (PCPs) (e.g., general medicine physicians, geriatricians, gynecologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses) who may have patients who are cancer survivors about how to better understand and care for survivors in the primary care setting.
