Mission: To champion the highest standards for cancer education through evidence- based practices to achieve quality outcomes.
Programs: The association collaborates with two other organizations to host an annual international cancer education conference. This conference has been developed to meet the changing needs of oncology professionals who educate others as part of their practice. By focusing on integrating theory into practice, it is the intention that the conference will equip all participants with the necessary tools to improve patient outcomes through efficient and effective education. In 2014, this meeting was held in clearwater beach, florida and participation included approximately 235 persons.
the association hosts a listserv to support communication among their members and operates a professional, peer-reviewed journal to provide cancer education professionals an opportunity to present and share their professional knowledge with their peers. In 2014, the association had 108 members from 28 u. S. States, the district of columbia, canada, united kingdom, saudi arabia, and isreal.
