Todd Pickard PA-C, UT MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, USA

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.
