The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) published it's first clinical practice guideline (CPG) on immunotherapy for the treatment of Renal Cell Carcinoma in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer on November 15, 2016.With the many advancements in immuno-oncology for the treatment of renal cell carcinoma, the SITC Renal Cell Carcinoma expert panel reconvened, developed and published an updated CPG on immunotherapy for the treatment of Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer on December 20, 2019. SITC's Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines program is a collection of CPGs developed by multi-disciplinary panels of experts who draw from their own practical experience as well as evidence in the published literature and clinical trial data to develop evidence- and consensus-based recommendations. SITC uses as a model the Institute of Medicine's 2011 "Standards for Developing Trustworthy Clinical Practice Guidelines" to ensure the recommendations are unbiased, transparent and balanced will aid oncologists in effective clinical decision-making concerning patient selection, toxicity management, response evaluation, and the sequencing or combination of therapies, among other topics. The Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma CPG was developed collaboratively through the efforts of an expert panel that convened to discuss the current therapeutic landscape. This CPG provides updated recommendations on the use of FDA-approved immune checkpoint inhibitors for advanced clear cell renal cell carcinoma, both as monotherapies and in combination regimens, with additional guidelines on patient selection, toxicity management, sequencing of therapies, and the treatment of non-clear cell pathology.
Published December 20, 2019 in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer (JITC) as “The Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer Consensus statement on immunotherapy for the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC).”
SITC is pleased to offer free webinars featuring Expert Panel members from SITC's Renal Cell Carcinoma Immunotherapy Guideline. These educational offerings are designed for healthcare providers who treat cancer patients including oncologists, physicians, disease specialists, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists and physician assistants. The live webinars include a dedicated question-and-answer session providing the opportunity for attendees to converse with the faculty and ask questions about the guideline recommendations.
In this introductory webinar, Expert Panel members provide attendees with an overview of the published guideline and highlight selected recommendations that are applicable to some of the most common scenarios clinicians may encounter while treating their patients with immunotherapy. After attending this webinar, learners will be better able to implement immunotherapy treatments effectively and in accordance with the recommendations in the SITC CPG.
This advanced webinar is designed so that attendees will know how to appraise and classify organ-specific considerations for immunotherapy agents and toxicities, identify and manage clinically significant uncommon toxicities, and determine optimal sequencing of immunotherapies in relapsed and/or refractory disease.
Faculty engage attendees through a combination of case presentations with a “virtual tumor board” discussion and Q&A with diverse sub-specialty experts based on the needs of each particular case. This high-level webinar is designed so attendees will be able to execute the use of immunotherapy with increased confidence, plan management strategies for difficult cases, and identify and discuss areas of controversy in the immunotherapy field.
