IO Therapies in the Advanced Bladder Cancer Clinic: Aligning Your Team for Success

As the treatment paradigm for bladder cancer continuously evolves, all members of the oncology healthcare team must be equipped to evolve with it to ensure optimal patient care. With this evolution comes many questions for the bladder cancer treatment team. Join Drs. Neal Shore, Arjun Balar, Lidia Lopez, and Nurse Joanie Pfahl as they examine the new paradigm of bladder treatment using ICIs, and discuss the important role of each person on the treatment team.

Consider the evolving roles of ICIs in multimodal and/or combination regimens, including use earlier in the disease course in BCG-unresponsive disease.

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