Directions in Oncology Pharmacy® 2019 Overview

Constantly evolving use of immunotherapies and targeted therapies has changed the landscape for anticancer treatment. The complexity of new regimens and need for coordination of care across practice and pharmacy settings has reinforced and expanded the roles of pharmacists both clinically and operationally. It is essential for pharmacists across settings to understand the different treatment options and dosing regimens, implement methods to improve patient adherence, educate other health care team members, and counsel patients during onboarding and as treatment is ongoing to manage potential adverse effects associated with these agents to optimize patient care and outcomes. This full-day educational meeting will provide live practical education to pharmacists in the inpatient, ambulatory, infusion, and specialty pharmacy practice settings. Sessions will focus on evolving treatment strategies including use of checkpoint inhibitors and targeted oral and infusion therapies for the care of patients with solid tumors and hematologic malignancies, including topics such as head and neck cancer, melanoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, hepatocellular carcinoma, and acute myeloid leukemia.

Educational Objectives for Attending Oncology Pharmacists

Upon completion of this application-based educational conference, pharmacists should be able to:
• Examine recently approved and expanded indications for immunotherapy and targeted therapies, including evidence for use based on biomarkers as well as efficacy and safety
• Analyze current guidelines for solid and hematologic malignancies, such as head and neck cancer, melanoma, and acute and chronic leukemias, and how these evolving agents fit into the treatment paradigm
• Identify the role of pharmacists in managing adverse effects, educating the health care team and patients, improving patient adherence, and coordinating care to improve patient outcomes

Target Audience
This continuing education program is directed toward pharmacists involved in the treatment of patients with cancer including those in clinical and operational roles in inpatient, ambulatory, infusion, specialty, and retail pharmacy practice settings.

Topics will include:
acute myeloid leukemia, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, head and neck cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, melanoma
