  • Describe management approaches for difficult or refractory immune-related adverse events.

Target Audience

The Advances in Cancer Immunotherapy™ (ACI) programs aim to reach practicing clinical oncologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, advanced practitioners, pharmacists, emergency physicians, and other allied health professionals who wish to learn the basic principles of cancer immunotherapy and the most up-to-date clinical data for these treatments, in a multitude of disease states/therapeutic areas, in order to inform and integrate into their own clinical practice. In-training oncologists and hospital administrators will also find the program beneficial.
