GOAL

The goal of this activity is to enhance the ability of oncology pharmacists, oncology nurses and NPs who manage and or interact with breast cancer patients to provide information, insights, and solutions, applicable at both systems and local levels to identify, address, and rectify inequities in oncology healthcare delivery.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of the activities, the learner will be able to:
