Immunotherapy: Nibs and Mabs

The development of new therapies aimed at the immune system to control cancer is exploding. It seems as if every day new drugs are being tested and released. Oncology APNs need to understand what these therapies are, how they work, and who should be receiving them. In this session, you’ll get the very latest information on monoclonal antibodies, cancer vaccines, immune checkpoint inhibitors, and more.

Grand Rounds: Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia (APL) and Unique Blood Product Requirements

When administering blood products is an everyday occurrence, nurses need to be aware of the potential risks and adverse outcomes of transfusions. Understand the difference between and treatment requirements of a potential transfusion-associated circulatory overload and transfusion-related acute lung injury as well as other adverse reactions. What does the evidence show regarding thresholds of transfusing blood products? What is the importance of understanding the need for irradiated, CMV-negative, or washed products? You’ll see an APL patient in disseminated intravascular coagulopathy requiring multiple blood products to gain knowledge on how you can recognize and manage adverse events of blood product administration.
