Activity Rationale and Purpose
Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers, with melanoma the most aggressive and lethal and basal cell carcinoma the most common. The incidence of each is increasing worldwide; aging populations, changes in sun exposure habits, and environmental changes are possible reasons. Improved understanding of the mechanisms by which melanoma evades the immune system and the molecular pathways utilized has led to advances in the development of both targeted agents and immunotherapies that favorably impact morbidity and mortality. Newly emerging agents for locally-advanced and metastatic basal cell carcinoma may increasingly improve survival rates. However, these therapies may be associated with severe, and potentially lethal adverse events, which warrants judicious monitoring by the full multidisciplinary team.
The intended audience for this enduring internet activity is physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, advanced degree nurses, oncology and hematology nurses, and pharmacists who specialize in the field of oncology.
After completing this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Demonstrate increased understanding of the MOAs of targeted and immunotherapy agents used in the treatment of advanced/metastatic melanoma and/or basal cell carcinoma, including the impact these unique agents have on patient outcomes
- Apply new skill sets to guide and manage treatment expectations of patients and their families
- Recognize and manage adverse events that occur with use of targeted therapies and immunotherapies in the treatment of advanced/metastatic melanoma and/or basal cell carcinoma
- Discuss the pivotal role and necessary expertise of the AP as a vital part of the collaborative oncology team treating these skin cancers
