Activity Description

Advances in the understanding of the science of pancreatic cancer have led to improved outcomes for patients with this traditionally difficult-to-treat malignancy, along with greater opportunities for oncology nurses to partner with patients and members of their cancer team to implement new standards of care. This CNE-certified activity, presented by PeerView in collaboration with Let’s Win, an affiliate of the Lustgarten Foundation, will focus on effective management strategies with novel chemotherapy platforms, personalizing care with PARP and checkpoint inhibitors, and preparing for emerging multimodal approaches, such as tumor-treating fields (TTFields) therapy. Pancreatic cancer nurse expert, Gayle Jameson, will provide practical guidance on recognizing and managing adverse events associated with established and emerging treatments, counseling patients and their families on personalizing treatment plans, and addressing issues related to clinical trial enrollment.
