PTCE and NCODA to Partner in Bringing Oncology-Focused Continuing Education to the NCODA Membership

 The industry-leading continuing pharmacy education provider becomes sole provider for association’s three major meetings through 2021

(CRANBURY, N.J. – August 26, 2020) – PTCE proudly announces it is now the exclusive continuing education (CE) provider for the National Community Oncology Dispensing Association, Inc. (NCODA) 2020-2021 meetings.

NCODA provides its medically integrated dispensing pharmacy team members with the opportunity to attend their two national marquee meeting events, the NCODA Spring Forum and the NCODA Fall Summit. These meetings allow the NCODA membership to share best practices and discuss the present-day oncology landscape. Through this partnership, NCODA’s members will gain access to targeted CE programming that supports positive clinical outcomes, interventions, and patient care by exploring treatment and management considerations for patients receiving oncolytics.

“We’re very excited to join forces with NCODA to provide their audiences with high-quality content as their national meeting CE provider,” said Jim Palatine, R.Ph., MBA, president of PTCE. “NCODA’s annual meetings have been a driver of change to improve and advance the medically integrated dispensing pharmacy services for oncology practices. We look forward to using our platforms, as well as expert speakers and resources, to help achieve its goals to enhance education for health care professionals who provide care to patients with cancer.”

PTCE will have exclusivity to provide six CE-accredited sessions to NCODA physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and pharmacy technician members at each of the following NCODA meetings:
  • 2020 NCODA National Fall Summit Virtual E-Meeting, Oct. 22-23, 2020.
  • 2021 NCODA National Spring Forum, location, and date TBD.
