In the past decade, the advent of targeted agents has become a survival benefit for patients with advanced cancers, and they have improved the cure rate in those treated in the adjuvant setting.
Oncology nurses are at the forefront to assist with education, recognition, and management of side effects and supportive care during treatment.
Presented by Ann Calkin, RN, OCN, the webinar will include:
The definition and examples of targeted therapies
Common (and some uncommon) side effects
Useful management techniques
A question-and-answer period following the presentation
As we continue to see advancement within cancer research, tailored patient treatment seems to be the future of oncology care.
