This initiative is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, oncology pharmacists, oncology nurses, and other healthcare professionals and teams involved in the management of patients with cancer who are treated or eligible for treatment with immunotherapy.


  • Review the clinical utility of currently identified immune-related biomarkers and the benefits and limitations of different immune biomarker testing methodologies
  • Incorporate immune-related biomarker testing to identify patients most likely to benefit from cancer immunotherapies administered alone or in combination
  • Describe immune-related biomarker-driven pan-tumor studies, their designs, and the implications of their results for patient management
  • Critically evaluate clinical data on current and emerging immune checkpoint inhibitors, with a focus on the unique type, incidence, and classification of immune-related adverse events (irAEs) across tumor types
  • Describe how to diagnose irAEs associated with immunotherapies and current recommendations for their management
  • Explain patient-centered SDM approaches aimed at optimizing cancer care and survivorship, including the role of multidisciplinary teams and emergent care considerations in the diagnosis and management of irAEs
