ICI-irAEs CPG Mini Module - Special Patient Populations
The SITC Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines Webinars connect clinicians with leading experts in the field and provide education about the evidence- and consensus-based recommendations in the clinical practice guidelines. To complement the advanced live webinar series, three on-demand, mini modules will assist learners in applying lessons learned on specific topics within the use of immunotherapy in their own practices and locate additional resources to continue their education.
This module features a discussion from faculty member David E. Gerber, MD - Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, on immune-related adverse events in patients typically considered high-risk, specifically those with pre-exisiting autoimmune disease and transplant recipients. Considerations for weighing risks versus benefits of checkpoint blockade in these patients are presented.
Clinicians and advanced practice providers who treat cancer patients are the target audience, including community physicians, oncologists, emergency room physicians, disease specialists, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, physician assistants and radiologists.
