HealthTrust presents…”Oncologic Emergencies & The Role of the Pharmacist”

With the incidence of cancer continuing to rise, the risk of oncologic emergencies also increases. An oncologic emergency is a unique complication that occurs in cancer patients, which could be a result of disease progression or from its treatment. These emergencies require immediate medical attention, often in an intensive care unit. When pharmacists understand the management of the emergencies associated with cancer care, they have an ability to play a more active role in the treatment and care of these patients. This session will address the pathophysiology, treatment and management of oncologic emergencies, including tumor lysis syndrome, hypercalcemia of malignancy, and febrile neutropenia.

Learning Objectives for Pharmacists  |  At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Recognize the types of oncologic emergencies and the risk factors associated with them
  2. Explain how to manage of patients with oncologic emergencies
  3. Create an individualized treatment plan for patients with oncologic emergencies
