Exemplar video presentations from the live Advances in Cancer Immunotherapy™ (ACI) programs are available as an online Video Series course. One video has been selected for each topic of the 2019 ACI program (eight total modules).
The online modules will facilitate understanding of the clinical applications of cancer immunotherapy for disease states with FDA-approved treatments, strategies for overcoming operational and reimbursement barriers to implementing immunotherapy in a community setting and the identification and management of immune-related adverse events.
The Practical Barriers in Cancer Immunotherapy module covers practical barriers to implementing immunotherapy in a community setting (operations and reimbursement).. The module also includes a panel discussion in which experts in the field discuss common challenges they have faced including coverage and reimbursement challenges and adverse event managment.
This activity is intended for physicians, pharmacists, registered nurses and other healthcare professionals engaged in the care of patients with cancer.
