Please join the conference at least 5 minutes before the scheduled start time for important announcements.

Target Audience

This continuing pharmacy education activity was planned to meet the needs of pharmacists in a variety of practice settings including large and small health systems, ambulatory care clinics, managed care organizations, and academia. The activity is particularly beneficial for pharmacists, clinical specialists, managers, leaders, and educators who are interested in oncology.

Webinar Overview

Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) is one of the adverse effects most feared by patients undergoing cancer treatment. Pharmacists are ideally situated to minimize this serious adverse effect. This webinar will provide pearls in overcoming challenges in the management of CINV using a case-based format. 

 

Clinical cases for this live webinar are based in part on questions raised by participants in a recent educational symposium on this topic.  The audience will participate in working through these cases, followed by a review of the evidence supporting the recommendation.  Time for questions and answers from the webinar audience will be provided at the end of the presentation.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this application-based educational activity, participants should be able to

  • Devise a chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) prevention and treatment strategy for a patient receiving highly- or moderately-emetogenic chemotherapy.
  • Compare the efficacy of intravenous versus oral antiemetic formulations.
  • Evaluate the evidence for the use of ginger in the prevention and treatment of CINV.
  • Discuss the role of olanzapine in the management of CINV.
