The Association of Pediatric Hematology/ Oncology Nurses (APHON) Pediatric Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Provider Course provides a comprehensive review of the knowledge needed to administer cytotoxic and biotherapeutic agents. Upon successful completion of the course and post-test, participants will receive an APHON Pediatric Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Provider Card. This card validates that the participant has completed the education and demonstrated the knowledge needed to administer chemotherapy and biotherapy agents to pediatric patients. It is the responsibility of the participant to ensure their provider status is renewed with APHON every 2 years on or before the provider card expiration. Information regarding online renewal process is found on the APHON website at www.aphon.org.
The APHON Pediatric Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Course is NOT a certification course, and is not intended to measure competency. Individual institutions are responsible for determining their own requirements for assessing clinical competency.
This program contains discussion of off-label uses (products used for a purpose other than that for which it was approved by the FDA). All disclosures will be mentioned at the beginning of the course.
Participants must be licensed registered nurses. This course content is appropriate for nurses who are new to pediatric and adolescent chemotherapy and bio-therapy administration, as well as for those who want a comprehensive review.
The Association of Pediatric Hematology / Oncology Nurses (APHON) is accredited as a provider of continuing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. 13.75 contact hours will be awarded. We urge you to be aware of the continuing education requirements of your own state board of nursing, especially for those states in which CE is mandatory.
