Intervention Management: A New Approach to Ongoing Issues

Nurses often start by looking at the patient’s symptoms that need to be managed. How would your practice change if you flipped your mindset and thought about evidence-based interventions first, and then how they can be used to manage frequently-experienced symptoms? Take a look at evidence-based interventions from the Oncology Nursing Society Putting Evidence Into Practice (PEP) resources to see how to use them across multiple symptoms. You’ll learn about the PEP resources for anxiety, depression, sleep, and fatigue straight from the experts who developed them, how you can use the resources to improve quality, and what quality measures are related to them.

Dental Oncology

Oral health and dental hygiene are often overlooked before, during, and after cancer treatment. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and other drugs used in the treatment of cancer can have compounding effects on the oral mucosa and dentition, resulting in increased risk of infection, delayed wound healing, dental caries, and chronic periodontal disease. Increase your knowledge of dental oncology, an expanding area of dentistry focused on prevention, treatment, and maintenance of oral and dental health in both patients with cancer and survivors, to increase quality of life during and after cancer therapy.




6:00pm

The Evolving State of Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma Treatment
In 2015 four new agents were approved for the treatment of multiple myeloma (MM) in the salvage setting, equipping oncology health professionals with more therapeutic options than ever before. But for oncology nurses, this progress also brings the challenge of managing new treatment-related toxicities. Through the use of iPad-based–learning elements, this interactive symposium will provide current information that will help oncology nurses maximize treatment outcomes for patients with relapsed/refractory MM.

Support for this activity has been provided through educational grants from Amgen, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Janssen Biotech, Inc., administered by Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC.

Improving Patient Outcomes Through Personalizing Care in the Management of Chemotherapy-Induced Nausea and Vomiting
CINV impairs quality of life, negatively impacts nutritional status, can delay treatment, elevates the risk of nonadherence to chemotherapeutic therapy, and increases the use of healthcare resources. Therapeutic advances have resulted in better understanding of CINV pathophysiology and how therapy for CINV can be personalized. Join us to learn the most up-to-date therapies for managing CINV as well as expert insights into the pathophysiology and classification of CINV.

Complex Pain Management in Oncology

Patients with cancer often face acute pain in addition to chronic pain. On top of multiple types of pain, they may experience spiritual or existential suffering. Poor management of pain is not uncommon, with both provider and patient/family factors contributing to the situation. The holistic approach of APRNs has significant potential to ease suffering and provide evidence-based care for these patients. In this case study-based session, you’ll receive an overview of how to perform a complete pain assessment and discuss both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical strategies to provide palliative pain management.

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.
