Texas Society of Clinical Oncology (TxSCO) Annual Conference - 10/26/2021

The field of oncology is rapidly evolving with the constant release of new cancer-related research. Health care professionals who care for patients with cancer can find it challenging to stay update to date with the latest best practices in cancer care. They may not be aware of the growing number of ways that immunotherapy and targeted therapies are revolutionizing care for patients with a variety of different cancers, including lung cancer and kidney cancer. In particular, chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy, a revolutionary advance that harnesses T cells to fight cancer, is providing hope for treating some types of cancer that no longer respond to other treatments. 

 

Target Audience

Pharmacists, Physician Assistants, Nurses, and Nurse Practitioners who are interested in the field of Oncology

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Summarize new research and best practices for treating lung cancer.  

  1. Use new knowledge about the role of immunotherapy in managing kidney cancer.  

  1. Describe the latest innovations in the use of CAR T-cell therapies.
