Emerging Immunotherapeutic Agents for the Treatment of Bladder Cancer Webinar #2 (2nd offering) (2017)

May 30, 2017

Complimentary Educational Series. Registration is required and is FREE to all registrants!

Webinar 1: Immunotherapy: From Research to Practice
Webinar 2: Emerging Immunotherapeutic Agents for the Treatment of Bladder Cancer
Webinar 3: AUA New Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer Guideline
Webinar 4: Complex Patient Cases in Bladder Cancer

Overview

The AUA developed the Emerging Immunotherapeutic Agents for the Treatment of Bladder Cancer initiative to include multiple educational interventions to improve the urologist, medical oncologist, and other healthcare provider's ability to care for patients with bladder cancer. These activities are designed to increase the clinician's competence in the application of new and emerging treatment options, including the sequencing and associated side effects of those options.

The initiative is comprised of five unique activities, including four live webinars and an online, interactive, case-study activity. Each live webinar will be offered as a live webinar twice and then again as a webcast and podcast so that you can participate at a time and location that works best for you. Each live webinar will offer interactive discussion along with Q&A and audience participation.

The goal of this knowledge-based activity is to improve clinicians’ understanding of current immunotherapeutic agents for the treatment of bladder cancer and to increase their ability to improve patient outcomes and the management of adverse events.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be able to:

  1. Appraise clinical investigations into the efficacy of immune system checkpoint inhibitors in the treatment of bladder cancer.
  2. Describe potential drug interactions of immune system checkpoint inhibitors with other immunotherapies and chemotherapies that may improve or diminish anticancer therapeutic efficacy.
  3. Demonstrate an ability to manage side effects of immune system checkpoint inhibitors, including the recognition and response to emergent immune-related adverse effects.
