Adverse Events Management and Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Detection Project
Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is an issue in many cancers and cancer treatments. With the development of immunotherapies, it has become a focus of attention, but it is an historical issue related to radiation, busulfan and bleomycin.
Many treatments in various disease areas have ILD as a potential toxicity. Early diagnosis is crucial to avoid irreversible damage or even death of the patient.
The aim of this project is to expand awareness and knowledge among HPCs about:
- The frequency of ILD with various oncological treatments
- Patients at major risk and methods, if any, to avoid ILD
- The appropriate methods for the early diagnosis of ILD, with or without sophisticated radiological methods
- Treatment of ILD and possible reinstatement of the oncological drug
Project Target Group
HCPs - Medical Oncologists – Haematologists - Radiation Oncologists – Pulmonologists - Radiologists
Project Approach and Outcomes
This multi-step project will consist of:
- An online Task Force
- A Scientific Position Statement, to be published on the Cancerworld magazine
- Five Podcasts
- A series of Educational Webinars
- A Virtual Event
The materials - free of charge and accessible to the audience by registering on SPCC's OncoCorner e-learning platform - will remain available on-demand on the platform.
Task Force - 25 April 2022
An online Task Force (closed session, not accessible to the audience) organized to discuss new strategies to tackle adverse events on Interstitial Lung Disease cancer.
Renowned experts were be invited to join the faculty:
- Experts from ESR (European Society of Radiology)
- Authors of recent publications in the field
- 1 Cancerworld journalist
Scientific Position Statement
Five Podcasts, consisting of short contributions on the topic by Task Force experts, will be developed.
The podcasts will be free of charge and accessible to the audience by registering on SPCC's OncoCorner e-learning platform.
The materials will remain available on-demand until obsolete, or at maximum for 1 year.
A series of three Educational Webinars will be organized to develop the outcomes of the Task Force. The specific topics will be proposed by the Task Force faculty.
It will focus on the main topics of the Task Force and previous webinars.
Timelines, faculties, programmes and further information about this project will be available soon.
