Program Purpose

Specifically designed by the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC) for clinical oncologists, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, emergency physicians and the entire cancer care team, the Advances in Cancer Immunotherapy™ (ACI) programs are introductory educational programs. Presented by leading and local authorities in tumor immunology and cancer immunotherapy, these programs will facilitate understanding of:

  • The rationale for common approaches to immunotherapy
  • The appropriate clinical management of common side effects of immunotherapy agents
  • Implementing appropriate cancer immunotherapy treatments for skin, lung, genitourinary, head and neck, hematologic and/or additional solid tumor cancers in clinical practice
  • Overcoming operational and financial barriers to integrating cancer immunotherapy into their practice setting
  • Appropriate implementation of cancer care counsel in the clinical setting

Attendees will also have an opportunity for connecting with regional experts in the immunotherapy field at the live event, through four quarterly webinars, and indefinitely through a dedicated online community forum. These connections will serve as ongoing resources while clinical oncologists and other healthcare providers incorporate immunotherapy into practice.
