Program Overview
This program is a 1-hour, ACPE-accredited, live virtual satellite symposium at the 2022 Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) Health Disparities Summit that is designed to educate HCPs on the latest evidence-based cancer immunotherapy treatment and immune-related AE (irAE) management and to increase awareness of and provide educational resources and training to recognize and address cancer health disparities based on specific drivers of inequity, including racial, socioeconomic, sex, gender identity, and geography.

Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge and competence of learners in providing inclusive and equitable care for all patients with cancer, including those patients eligible for or receiving immunotherapy.

Target Audience
The target audience for this activity is pharmacists, including managed care, specialty, and clinical pharmacists, who care for patients with cancer as well as pharmacy directors, chief pharmacy officers, and other stakeholders in pharmacy practice.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify patient populations and social determinants of health that increase risk for poor prognosis secondary to health disparities
  • Discuss management of immune-related adverse events in patient groups affected by inequalities and poor healthcare access
  • Incorporate health disparity mitigation strategies into the care of all patients receiving immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy and experiencing immune-related adverse events
  • Describe education, quality improvement, and other support strategies to ensure patients with cancer receive optimal and equitable care
