Global Objectives: 

As a result of participation in this educational series, members of the healthcare team will be able to:

  1. Provide collaborative, team‐based care and conduct multidisciplinary research related to cancer control, cancer genetics, chemoprevention, experimental treatments, imaging and radiation, disparities in care, and other areas of the field
  2. Discuss advances in cancer research and practice that fall outside of their usual scope of work, resulting in improved communication with the interprofessional healthcare team
  3. Commit to connecting, collaborating and outreach between Non-UW learners, clinics and physicians in ethical ways to narrow the outreach gaps
  4. Identify health disparities in the oncology sphere, reflect on bias in the clinical encounter, and address challenges and opportunities posed in order to make oncology care diverse, equitable, and inclusive
