    • Overview

      This presentation will serve as a basic overview of immunotherapy, intended for community pharmacists, in order to increase knowledge and skills between non-oncology pharmacists and patients receiving immunotherapy. The session will include a review of immunotherapy indications for use, mechanism of action, and commonly experienced immune-related adverse events. While recognizing that community pharmacists will not be dispensing immunotherapy to patients, it is still critical for community pharmacists to be aware of the needs of patients receiving immunotherapy in order to create a pharmacy environment that encourages patients to share information about their cancer management, especially when they are receiving medications from outside of the community pharmacy. Information on the management of immune-related adverse events will incorporate evidenced-based guidelines so that community pharmacists are well positioned to make recommendations/referrals for the commonly encountered immune-related adverse events. Key concepts that community pharmacists would need to know will be reinforced and applied through application-based cases in order to highlight counseling points that should be communicated to patients.
