Managing Cancer Immunotherapy Adverse Effects
This third annual Managing Cancer Immunotherapy conference will be focusing on adverse effects providing a learning and networking platform to share good practice and resources. Designed for Clinical Oncologists, Medical Oncologists, Lead Nurses and Nurse Specialists from Acute Oncology and Cancer Services, and Chemotherapy and Respiratory Units, this is a great opportunity to increase understanding across your service of both the short and long-term side effects and put the right systems in place for appropriate escalation and care.
Is your oncology team up to speed? When changing mindsets from chemotherapy to immunotherapy can be challenging, this conference will look at how to develop your team, link specialities, front line and oncology staff into the care of patients on immunotherapy treatments.
Previously described as an “excellent day, very informative and relevant” with “enthusiastic speakers, able to motivate desire for change”, this year’s conference will focus on:
- Toxicity management: insight into the current research and evidence, patient treatment case studies and side effects assessed
- Service development: staff education, taking a team approach and working with endocrinologists and gastroenterologists
- Appropriate escalation: when patients arrive in ED and MAU and delivering immunotherapy treatments for patients with lung cancer
- Patient care and education: nurses role in increasing knowledge and understanding in patients, and what does the patient think?
With limited budgets and opportunities to expand, you need to be creative in tackling the adverse effects of immunotherapy and educating both front line and ward staff. Now in its third year, this is a great opportunity for you to network with:
- Lead Nurses, CNS, Matrons and Sisters in Cancer, Acute Oncology and Chemotherapy
- Clinical Nurse Specialists in Lung Cancer, Gynaecology and Palliative Care
- Consultant Clinical Oncologists, Consultant Medical Oncologists and Speciality Doctors
- Pharmacists, Medical Managers and Service Managers
