COA Advanced Practice Provider Network (CAPP)
The COA Advanced Practice Provider Network (CAPP) supports oncology nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other advanced practice providers who play a larger part in care for patients with cancer.
Launched in response to requests from COA member practices, the CAPP Network consists of a private, peer-to-peer-only information sharing website and listserv; monthly conference calls to review important practice issues and discuss solutions; and opportunities for in-person meetings. Participation in the network is open and free of charge to all qualified advanced practice providers. Vendors and other industry representatives are not allowed access to join this private network.
The goal of the CAPP Network is to keep oncology advanced practice providers up to date on the latest news and developments, such as patient support strategies; health reform initiatives; the newest drugs and therapies; and strengthening advanced provider leadership roles in practices.
The CAPP Network is led and organized by advanced practice providers in community practices with technical support from COA. The inaugural co-chairs are Sarah Alexander, MSN, nurse practitioner at Cancer Care, Western North Carolina; and Diana Youngs, RN, MSN, ANPC, nurse practitioner at New York Cancer & Blood Specialists Cancer Center in Long Island, New York.
