Early identification of irAEs and initiation of systemic immunosuppression can improve outcomes without compromising the efficacy of immune checkpoint inhibition. As front-line caregivers, oncology nurses are optimally positioned to quickly identify such adverse events and employ appropropriate management strategies. The objective of this educational initiative is to provide oncology nurses and nurse practitioners attending Oncology Nursing Society’s (ONS) regional chapter meetings with evidence-based information on the latest developments in the use of cancer immunotherapy and effective management of irAEs.

• Assess the clinical efficacy, unique response patterns, and safety profiles associated with checkpoint inhibitors in various types of cancers. • Evaluate the signs and symptoms of immune-related adverse events (irAEs) associated with checkpoint inhibitors and understand how to differentiate
these from other etiologies. • Review recent ASCO/NCCN guidelines for the management of irAEs and apply these recommendations to optimize patient care. • Using a case-based approach, discuss strategies oncology nurses can employ to overcome real-world challenges to the early recognition and
appropriate management of irAEs.
