CAR T-CELL Therapy: A Road Map for Nurses

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
August 20, 2020

Join The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) on an exciting journey as we explore CAR T-cell therapy from the nurse’s perspective!

Nurses from three cancer centers will discuss the nurse's role in preparing patients and caregivers for the CAR T-cell treatment process, assessment, monitoring for and managing side effects, and communication with the patient's community healthcare team to transition patient care back. Following a patient from initial treatment discussion, symposium attendees will be able to provide feedback on patient care for the case, in this interactive session. With CAR T therapy and follow-up care expanding beyond the major centers, nurses are essential members of the treatment team.

Sign up Buckle up - our trip begins at 9 AM September 10 - don’t be late. This session is provided by LLS with support from Bristol Myers Squibb Company; Kite, A Gilead Company and Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation
