TORONTO (PRWEB) March 26, 2021
Treating cancer patients with cell and gene therapy products, especially autologous products, is a process that must account for the needs and perspectives of patients, caregivers and treating physicians. Each of these stakeholders faces their own unique concerns and challenges, for example, with decision making, enrolling, scheduling, post-infusion management and long-term follow up.
Join this educational webinar to learn about the experiences of evaluating CAR T treatment options and the role of a multi-disciplinary team in enhancing a patient-centric approach. The discussion will examine critical considerations for nurses and physicians as well as the logistical hurdles that patients and caregivers face.
The speakers will also cover the additional challenges of ensuring trial continuity, pretreatment management and patient safety during the COVID-19 era as it relates to decentralized clinical trial solutions, such as telemedicine, home nursing and eConsent, which can help minimize risks in these complex trials and help support patients in their journey.
