Bone marrow procedures are a common diagnostic tool utilized in hematology/oncology and can be completed in the office by trained clinicians. Currently, there are limited guidelines for appropriate training and competency for bone marrow procedures performed by advanced practice providers (APPs) in a community oncology practice setting. The need to create a standardized training and competency protocol for APPs in this setting was recognized. A comprehensive, standardized educational and procedural toolkit was created. The creation of a comprehensive training toolkit for APPs in the community oncology practice setting helps to ensure a high standard of procedural proficiency and consistency among individual providers and practices. The creation of such an extensive toolkit is time consuming. By adopting and standardizing toolkits such as this one, community hematology/oncology practices can ensure the delivery of high-quality patient care by highly trained and proficient APPs.
