FCACC-FLASCO  CARDIO-ONCOLOGY COLLABORATIVE

Through a grant funded by the ACC Board of Governors, the Florida Chapter, American College of Cardiology and the Florida Society of Clinical Oncology developed a joint program to assess gaps in knowledge and then create educational materials about the emerging field of cardio-oncology. The results of the work of the joint group are a series of educational materials aimed to close the knowledge gaps.

COLLABORATION among health care providers is becoming increasingly important. To assess the gaps in knowledge of Cardio- Oncology, the Florida chapters of the ACC and ASCO have partnered to create joint educational materials.

DECIDING who needs a Cardio-Oncology consult is still a moving target and we hope to be able to increase awareness of cardio-toxicities and bridge the gap to make sure patients are cared for in a streamlined, efficient fashion.

IN THE FUTURE, we encourage participation of others as this field continues to grow, and hope you get involved with FCACC and FLASCO Cardio-Oncology sections as well as the National sections.

SURVEY RESULTS

Thank you to FCACC members who took the cardio-oncology survey. 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

These timely educational materials are reviews of important clinical subjects, brief outlines of what to be aware of, and a few selected references that can be reviewed in a matter of 10 minutes to help increase awareness of cardio-oncology issues. View or Download them today.

COVID-19 Impact Survey

A multi-state and international cardio-oncology collaborative network from the American College of Cardiology (ACC), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and International Cardio Oncology Society (ICOS) has prepared a brief survey.

Please take three minutes of your time to complete it: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/C8ZDYNW

The results will help us all to understand what our main needs are so we can ask for support based on real data.
