Recorded Presentations from the NCCN 2018 Nursing Forum: Advancing Oncology Nursing in Hematologic Malignancies™
The management of cancer is constantly evolving through the introduction of new developments related to cancer treatment and supportive care. This program will provide hematology/oncology nurses with comprehensive and clinically relevant information to optimize patient education and care. Information is focused on current and critical issues to provide hematology/oncology nurses with practical information that can be implemented in the practice setting. The program content will address the following topics: Optimizing the Care of Patients Receiving CAR T-Cell Therapy; Management of Toxicities Associated with Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors; Strategies to Identify Needs and Coordinate Referrals to a Multidisciplinary Chronic Graft-Versus-Host Clinic, and Transition of Care: Homebound Stem Cell Transplantation.
The goal of this activity is to ensure that hematology/oncology nurses, as members of the interprofessional oncology team, have the knowledge and skills necessary to apply the standards of care to their practice and healthcare setting for patients with hematologic malignancies.
This information was originally presented at the NCCN 2018 Nursing Forum: Oncology Nursing in Hematologic Malignancies held in New York, New York, on September 21, 2018.
