Toxicity Management Workshop

There is an urgent need among practicing oncologists and nurses for treatment algorithms that guide management of immunotherapy-related toxicities. Similarly, standardized templates for reporting adverse events in clinical trials are needed in order to facilitate monitoring and reporting of toxicities, an effort which is considered a high priority by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

To this end, SITC took the lead to convene a one-day Toxicity Management Workshop on Friday, March 31, 2017, in Washington, D.C. Click here to learn more about this event.
