Overview

Response to oncologic emergencies is a critical component of patient care, and continued research has the potential to improve responses and outcomes. This symposium will feature an expert panel of oncology nursing specialists who will highlight best practices in identifying patients at risk of oncologic emergencies, strategies to recognize and treat associated symptoms, and applications of nursing management strategies across a continuum of care. In addition, our panel will review recent clinical trial data for the prevention and management of oncolytic emergencies. Topics for discussion will include tumor lysis syndrome, febrile neutropenia, venous thromboembolism, hyperkalemia, and other oncologic emergencies. An emphasis on case studies and audience participation throughout the program will assist in the integration of cutting-edge data and guideline-based care into the plan of care for your patients.
