Recorded Presentation from the 2015 NCCN Immuno-oncology Webinar Series for Pharmacists - The Role of the Immune System in Cancer
The 2015 NCCN Immuno-oncology Webinar Series for Pharmacists consists of three webinars that examine the immune system, how immune modulation works and its relevance in treating cancer, dosage and administration preparations of immunotherapeutic options, and safety and efficacy issues related to immunotherapy.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of clinical oncology pharmacists and pharmacy directors who manage patients on cancer immunotherapy.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Define the role of the immune system in cancer
- Discuss the mechanisms of action of immunotherapy as a cancer treatment modality and its place in treatment
- Formulate patient education strategies to increase patient compliance/adherence and improve quality of care

The ACCME/ANCC/ACPE defines “conflict of interest” as when an individual has an opportunity to affect CE content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.
ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC focuses on financial relationships with commercial interests in the 12-month period preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the CE activity. ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC have not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be significant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship. The ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC defines “’relevant’ financial relationships” as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest.
All faculty for this continuing education activity are competent in the subject matter and qualified by experience, training, and/or preparation to the tasks and methods of delivery.
