PER Pulse™ Recap
Coping With Confidence: Tips and Techniques for Managing Treatment-Induced Rash, a CE/CME-certified activity, was held as an ancillary symposium to the 39th Annual Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) Congress on Saturday, May 3, 2014, in Anaheim, CA. This symposium featured a multidisciplinary panel of world-class experts in the care of dermatologic rash encountered during the treatment of cancer, including oncology nurses and a dermatologist. Faculty discussed targeted agents that result in rash and other dermatologic events, assessment and grading guidelines, mitigation and management strategies, and patient communication and quality-of-life issues. Additionally, case scenarios reflecting common clinical challenges were presented, followed by an interactive Q&A session. A dermatologic assessment and grading tool was developed as an aid that participants can use to integrate the information into their practice.
