Advanced practice providers (APPs), a critical component of the U.S. healthcare system, help to address the global provider shortage by increasing patient access to care, reducing healthcare costs, and providing better patient outcomes. APP-led oncology clinics can bridge the gap between primary oncologists and higher levels of acute care services. By providing oncologic symptomatic care and same-day visits, an APP-led care model can improve outcomes for patients with cancer as they receive treatment and support from their oncology team.
