With the integration of immunotherapy in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer, recognition of potential side effects associated with immunotherapy and management of symptoms are essential components of overall care.

After viewing this program, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize the possible immune related toxicities during or after a patient receives immunotherapy.
  • Identify the possible immune related toxicities during or after a patient receives immunotherapy.
  • Distinguish how to counsel patients about what symptoms to relay to their health care team while receiving immunotherapy.

Following the presentation, there will be ample time for discussion and a question/answer session.  Attendees will be able to submit questions and comments to Dr. Brahmer via internet chat.
