Session Overview

This GP education webinar is hosted by Epworth Healthcare and moderated by A/Prof Joseph McKendrick, Oncologist

Cancer management has undergone a transformation with respect to treatment and outcomes as a result of personalised therapy with targeted therapy and immunotherapy.
With these new treatments a unique set of toxicities have emerged impacting on the patient experience. These range from the common to the rare in incidence. As the durability of response has significantly improved over the last decade, an understanding of these emerging toxicities along with the management and impact on quality of life is important for GPs and their patients.

The presentation will include the opportunity for panel Q&A.
