GoCART Webinar Series for Nurses

January 20, 2022 @ 4:30 pm

GoCART and the EBMT nurses group are launching a monthly live and interactive webinar series on CAR T-cell therapies. Each of our invited nurse experts will focus on a specific topic area with an introductory presentation explaining the theoretical background followed by a case study to highlight the ‘in practice’ learning. Join us for our first webinar ‘CRS and neurotoxicity’ with Ruth Clout from Christie Hospital, Manchester. These live ‘coffee-break’ sessions are just 30 minutes including Q&A. The first session will take place on 20 January 2022. Registration is now open and free! Register in this link.

Learning objectives for the session CRS and neurotoxicity are:

·        Explain what is Cytokine Release Syndrome (CRS) and Immune Effector Cell-Associated Neurotoxicity Syndrome (ICANS)

·        Identify patient risks factors

·        Recognise what the signs of the CRS & ICANS are

·        Understand how and when to assess, grade and treat

·        Discuss and reflect on the patient case example

·        Apply to your practice and patient care
