    Good evening,

    I’m curious to learn more about institutions who employ APPs in your infusion center and have a few questions regarding what that model looks like for your institution.

    1. Is your infusion center separate from your Hem/Onc clinic or combined?
    2. What are the daily responsibilities of the APPs in the infusion center?
    3. What hours do the APPs staff the infusion center and how many are typically there at one time?
    4. Is the infusion center APP or the primary team responsible for ordering the infusions?
    5. What type of orientation did they undergo prior to functioning independently?

    Thank you so much for any help! Happy to connect by phone or email with anyone currently utiziling this type of model.
