Focusing on the Role of the Advanced Bladder Cancer Care Team: Case Studies on Managing irAEs

Join Drs. Neal Shore, Gautam Jayram, and Nurse Tanya O’Neal as they discuss clinical considerations for managing immune-related adverse events that may occur at any time during therapy and, as of yet, there is no reliable means to predict who will develop them. If irAEs do develop, it is essential to arrive at an early diagnosis and use aggressive systemic corticosteroids when necessary to prevent life-threatening consequences. Therefore, it is paramount to educate patients, caregivers, and other providers involved on what to expect and follow up with patients often to ensure optimal outcomes for patients on immunotherapy agents. 

This activity is presented by Creative Educational Concepts and Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network and supported by independent educational grants from AstraZeneca and Genentech.
