SITC's Cancer Immunotherapy Guidelines program is a collection of Clinical Practice Guidelines (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. CPGs 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 head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) CPG was developed collaboratively through the efforts of an expert panel that convened to discuss the current therapeutic landscape. This CPG provides recommendations for FDA-approved immunotherapies for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma, as well as discussion of promising emerging treatment modalities and patient quality of life issues.
The HNSCC CPG originally published in The Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer (JITC) on July 15, 2019.
SITC continuously evaluates the field for practice-changing data and new FDA approvals. When needed, the HNSCC CPG Expert Panel will guide the development of updates within this CPG. Updates will appear in the SITC CPG Mobile App and as annotated text accompanying the original publication in JITC.
SITC is pleased to offer companion education resources in support of the published Head and Neck Cancer CPG. These activities feature faculty comprised of the guideline expert panel and are designed to provide a deeper understanding of the recommendations in the SITC guidelines and how to apply them in various clinical scenarios. The education available features webinars which are a longer-format recording that takes a deeper look at the guideline recommendations as well as mini-modules which are brief videos on a specific topic within the guideline content. Below is a list of the available educational resources for this CPG available free and on-demand.Webinars:
