Systemic anticancer therapies including cytotoxic chemotherapies, targeted therapies, and immunotherapies have resulted in improvements in patient survival. Despite this remarkable success, the majority of patients will develop toxicities of various organ systems, which may impact overall health and activities of daily living, resulting in inconsistent antineoplastic therapy, all of which may affect clinical outcome. Therefore, prevention and management of untoward events is critical for the maintenance of quality of life and the optimization of anticancer therapies. This symposium in endorsed by Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC).

The target audience for this symposium includes MDs, PAs, NPs, RNs, Pharmacists, and other professionals involved in the care of cancer patients.

Symposium Highlights

  • Therapy-related adverse events will affect the majority of patients, resulting in increased cost, inconsistent dosing, and decreased quality of life.
  • With increased survival and patients living longer on therapy, adverse events affecting quality of life and clinical outcome command attention.
  • This symposium provides up to date information on adverse event mechanisms and management, from specialists in the most commonly affected organ systems.
  • Practical strategies to maintain patients’ quality of life and dose intensity will be highlighted for the most frequently occurring events.

Attendees can purchase a copy of Dr Lacouture's book through the following link: Dr. Lacouture's Skin Care Guide for People Living With Cancer. Please note the first 50 attendees will receive a free copy at the symposium. We will notify the first 50 attendees on the day of the course.
