Immunotherapies have yielded impressive clinical benefits in a growing number of cancers, and in many cases, they have surpassed the efficacy of existing therapies. Immunotherapy usage is expected to increase in cancer care with the rapid approval of several new drugs and expanded indications for existing drugs in this class. However, the expanding armamentarium of immunotherapies available to treat patients with cancer poses a challenge to community clinicians with respect to integrating this new class of agents into practice. Community cancer programs need guidance regard the practical issues that cancer programs must navigate to provide immunotherapy safely and effectively in their own communities.

Target Audience

The target audience for this initiative includes oncologists, oncology advanced practice providers (nurse practitioners, physician assistants), oncology pharmacists, oncology nurses, and other healthcare professionals (HCPs) involved in treating patients with cancer immunotherapies.

Learning Objectives

   At the end of this educational activity, participants will be able to: 
  • Apply evidence-based practices for the monitoring and management of irAEs in patients receiving cancer immunotherapies         
  • Improve coordination and communication with non-oncology specialists and with patients/caregivers to manage irAEs in patients receiving cancer immunotherapies
  • Review strategies for providing equitable care for underserved patients receiving cancer immunotherapies
