Recorded Presentations from the 2014 NCCN Oncology Toxicities Webinar Series: GI Toxicities
Patients with gastrointestinal cancers often experience a constellation of symptoms including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, anorexia, cachexia, and mucositis. These symptoms are either toxicities secondary to treatment and/or related to complications of the disease. Even relatively low-grade discomfort, especially when chronic, can have a significan impact on quality of life. Clinicans should be diligent in routinely assessing patients for these distressing symptoms making every effort to maximize available preventative and treatment strategies.
These activities are designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals who manage patients with cancer.
These activities are approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Nursing and pharmacy (ACPE) credits are provided for all activities as well. Complete accreditation information is provided before each activity.
There is no fee for these educational activities.
