As the need for oncology services increases and the predicted shortage of oncologists draws near, the number of locum tenens positions is expected to increase. How can advanced practitioners help with the hiring and onboarding of locum tenens physicians while supporting patients and ensuring their continuity of care? In this episode, we address checklists for locum tenens, how to explain the AP role to physicians, and keeping an open line of communication with patients and the entire health-care team.
