Overview

Early identification of irAEs and initiation of systemic immunosuppression can improve outcomes without compromising the efficacy of immune checkpoint inhibition. As front-line caregivers, oncology nurses are optimally positioned to quickly identify such adverse events and employ appropropriate management strategies. The objective of this educational initiative is to provide oncology nurses and nurse practitioners attending Oncology Nursing Society’s (ONS) regional chapter meetings with evidence-based information on the latest developments in the use of cancer immunotherapy and effective management of irAEs.
