Fall 2019 the committee will present Phase 1 of the project with the surveys to the FCACC membership and FLASCO membership at the Global Cardio Oncology Summit 2019, this year in Brazil. The committee also plans to submit a manuscript for publication soon.
Phase 2 of our platform is advancing with targeted education for cardiologists in Florida that the committee hopes to launch before the end of the year via the FCACC website.
ACC’s newest JACC Journal, JACC: CardioOncology, is now online, providing a comprehensive new resource to better understand and apply evolving research surrounding the cardiovascular health of cancer patients and survivors. Click hereto read this quarterly journal.
Thank you to FCACC members who took the cardio-oncology survey. The committee is shifting through the data and how that will impact our education process. A few advanced highlights of the results are below.
50% said there are no Cardio Oncology Services in their community, 42 % said yes, 8 % didn’t even know.
From those who said yes (they have CO services in their community), 66 % have not referred any patients to them.
90% said CO services are of value to their communities
