Todd Pickard speaks to cancer at the APAO 2019 meeting in Boston about the role of physician associates (PAs) and nurse practitioners in oncology practice.

He describes oncology as a team-based care model and attributes patient outcomes to this collaboration between healthcare professionals.

Pickard outlines the main points that will be discussed by the panel at this year's meeting - including the adaptable nature of PAs.

He also gives advice to prospective PAs who are interested in specialising in oncology and reflects on the benefits that these APAO meetings provide.
