Activity Description and Educational Objectives

The spotlight is on cancer in emergency medicine—why now, and why should you care? The oncology treatment landscape is changing—what does the increasing role and use of cancer immunotherapies mean for those working in the ED? Emergency medicine specialists are often called upon to evaluate and manage patients with a wide variety of oncologic emergencies—what are the latest recommendations and best practices for recognition and management of adverse reactions associated with cancer immunotherapies and how can we improve outcomes in these patients? These and many other interesting topics will be addressed in this interactive and engaging CME/CE activity based on a recent satellite symposium led by Dr. Daniel Pallin.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
  • Discuss the evolving immuno-oncology treatment landscape and the basics of cancer immunotherapy
  • Characterize the spectrum of potential immune-mediated adverse reactions (IMARs), including organ systems impacted, presenting symptoms, and timing of occurrence
  • Describe the latest recommendations for evaluation, grading, and management of IMARs, inclusive of special considerations for emergency care settings
  • Implement recommended strategies for IMAR recognition/detection and management in emergency care settings, while following best practices for team-based, multidisciplinary, patient-centric care
