Registration and Breakfast: 5:30 am – 6:00 am

Given the importance of rapid assessment when a patient arrives in the emergency room, you need to have every tool available to provide a timely course of action. New therapies for cancer, such as immune checkpoint inhibitors, have changed the field of oncology. However, these agents can also lead to acute symptoms that can be life-threatening if not correctly diagnosed and managed. The “Don’t Crash” Crash Course in Managing Immune-Related Adverse Events in Oncology will provide you with knowledge about immune-related adverse events (irAEs), as well as optimal differential diagnostic and management strategies towards ensuring that patients can recover from irAEs and continue their therapy.

This symposium will consist of expert didactic presentations on the mechanism of action of immune checkpoint inhibitors, which informs the etiology of irAEs. You will learn about both the common and less frequent toxicities of immunotherapy, and expert panel discussions will provide you with the skills to rapidly recognize and manage irAEs in patients presenting in an emergency situation. Be sure to join us in Denver for this exciting opportunity to improve your practice.

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward the ACEP19 audience, emergency medicine professionals.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the mechanistic characteristics of checkpoint inhibitors in the context of the potential for immune-related adverse events (irAEs) with these agents.
  • Evaluate disease-related, comorbidity-related, and medication-related factors associated with an increased risk for, or impact of, specific types of irAEs.
  • Review potential irAEs, with an understanding of the relative frequency of specific types of irAEs, as well as best practices for toxicity management.
  • Develop evidence-based multidisciplinary approaches to promptly recognize and address potential irAEs associated with immune checkpoint inhibitors.
