There is an urgent and ongoing need to provide cancer care professionals with guidance, training, and support during the COVID-19 pandemic as they respond to unprecedented challenges in maintaining high-quality patient care. Members of the care team are challenged by the rapidly evolving data and recommendations surrounding COVID-19, successfully utilizing telehealth services, and determining how to ensure clinician and team well-being during this difficult time. To successfully overcome these challenges, clinicians who care for patients with cancer must be able to initiate action plans to implement strategies addressing cancer care guidelines and recommendations, organize teams to ensure integration and utilization of telehealth in their oncology practice, and promote practices to support care team well-being during the pandemic. The goal of this educational experience is to establish meaningful, virtual small-group interactions between health care providers that will, through a variety of collaborative educational experiences, help oncology care teams maintain high-quality patient care in light of the pressing demands of the COVID-19 pandemic.
