This conference expects to provide current information on identifying oncologic emergencies, the best practices when treating cancer patients with emergencies, the significance of palliative care in the patients presenting to the emergency department, symptom and pain management, toxicities associated standard of care therapies as well as immunotherapies, and other topics that are critical to supporting and treating cancer patients. Our conference aims to continue to fill the knowledge gap by providing information in an interactive forum that in turn enhances medical decisionmaking by healthcare providers.
Our conference will cover a variety of topics including: • Immunotherapy Panel Discussion (Understanding; GI Toxicities; Pulmonary Toxicities) • CAR-T Cell Panel Discussion (Mechanics; Neurotoxicity) • Side Effects of Conventional Chemotherapies • Cardiac Toxicities • Pulmonary Embolism Response Team • Cancer Prevention in the ED • Malignant Bowel Obstruction • Oncologic Observation Units • Palliative Care in the Emergency Department & Advance Care Directives • Depression, Suicide & Neglect • Pain Management & Symptom Control • Neutropenic Fever • Ultrasound in Cancer Patients in the ED
