Do you know the best strategies for integrating novel therapeutic approaches into the care of your patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC)? With the rapid expansion of effective treatments, oncology nurses have more opportunities than ever before to provide support and guidance that favorably influences outcomes for their patients with advanced kidney cancer. However, research has shown that many patients are not receiving individualized, evidence-based, and guideline-concordant treatment and those patients who are receiving new therapies are not receiving appropriate nurse-led care. Join PeerView for an interprofessional case-based activity featuring two nurse professionals and an oncologist to get insight on bringing treatment advances, including immune checkpoint inhibitors and combination strategies, into clinical practice. The expert panel will provide learners with a strong understanding of how current therapeutic regimens fit within the current management paradigm. Participants will also be offered tools to help them master practical aspects tied to effective use of therapies and tips on how to create optimized interprofessional care that empowers patients to participate in shared decision-making, provide multidisciplinary AE management, and support clinical trial enrollment for eligible patients. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Appraise recent data on therapeutic advances and updated practice standards, including the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors, TKIs, and combination approaches utilizing these agents, in the management of RCC across the disease spectrum, Update nursing care plans to incorporate practical and team-based strategies to promptly identify, mitigate, and manage AEs associated with novel systemic therapy options for RCC, Develop a team-based education plan focused on novel systemic therapy options for patients with RCC that includes pertinent information on therapeutic expectations, safety considerations, sequential treatments, and clinical trial opportunities.
