  • Understand Oncology specific forecasting considerations, and how these can be factored into your forecasts
  • Evaluate the pros and cons of a patient flow-based forecasting methodology, and compare to other approaches
  • Develop an Oncology forecast, taking into consideration the different approaches applicable throughout an Oncology forecast
  • Critically assess existing Oncology forecasts

What will be covered:

This course builds upon the best practice forecast principles covered in our Fundamentals of Forecasting training course, delving more in-depth in the areas specific to Oncology. We would encourage you to enroll on the Fundamentals course first to ensure a comprehensive understanding of these key principles.
