ABSTRACT

Introduction

As the official publication of the Advanced Practitioner Society for Hematology and Oncology (APSHO), JADPRO is pleased to offer Part 1 of an accredited educational activity based on the recently concluded APSHO Regional Lecture Series. Hosted in collaboration with major cancer centers around the country, the APSHO Regional Lecture Series brought case-based didactic presentations and skills workshops to advanced practitioners.

In the spirit of JADPRO, three accredited Grand Rounds articles by Beth Eaby-Sandy, MSN, CRNP, OCN® (non–small cell lung cancer) and Sandra E. Kurtin, PhDc, ANP-C, AOCN® (multiple myeloma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia)—program chairs for the regional lecture series—offer the same practice-changing information and strategies for advanced practitioners.

In this Grand Rounds article, essentials skills of interpreting pathology reports and imaging studies are reviewed. Images from patient cases supplement the article.

Keep an eye out for Parts 2 and 3 in future issues of JADPRO, and be sure to check out apsho.org/lectures for information on registering for upcoming JADPRO Regional Lectures starting this spring.
