AP POWER – Advanced Practice Provider Oncology Web Education Resource (formerly ONc-PoWER – Oncology Nursing Practitioner)

AP Power is an educational intervention led by Dr. Rosenzweig to refine and implement a national online oncology educational program for APPs (advanced practice providers – nurse practitioners/physician assistants) in their first year of oncology practice. The original AP Power was funded in 2012 and then renewed in 2017. AP Power includes innovative educational methods and curriculum with on-site mentorship and focusing on patient and communication issues encountered in cancer care. The primary outcome of this intervention is the APP’s perceived level of knowledge and confidence in the delivery of cancer care, which is measured pre and post the oncology educational curriculum.
