Immunotherapy Treatments - Overcoming Adverse Reactions
This fourth annual immunotherapy conference will be focusing on improving treatments in immunotherapy. By providing a learning and networking platform, you will be able to hear evidenced case studies and share good practice, discuss adverse reactions and share resources. Designed for Clinical Oncologists, Medical Oncologists, Lead Nurses and Nurse Specialists from Acute Oncology and Cancer Services, 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” and leave feeling “inspired and enlightened through “listening to the presentations and experience sharing”, this year’s conference will focus on:
- Latest developments: hear from evidenced case study examples to help your team develop their management plan to tackle adverse effects
- Service development: taking a team approach by sharing updates with your multi-disciplinary team to tackled complicated cases
- Appropriate escalation: when patients arrive in ED and MAU and delivering immunotherapy treatments for patients with lung cancer
- Education and specialisation: increasing knowledge and understanding in staff and patients and developing nurse led immunotherapy monitoring
With limited budgets and opportunities to expand, you need to be creative in ensuring the continued development 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
