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
- Visual examples
- 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.
