Turning on the Light Switch: A Model Immunotherapy Program at an Oncology Practice
The nursing team at Advocate Medical Group initiated a program that aimed to provide consistent, optimal care for patients receiving immunotherapy. Components include patient and staff education materials, peer-to-peer training, policy and procedure guidelines, toxicity assessment tools, and EHR documentation templates. The result is the creation of tools and procedures that standardized and improved care of immunotherapy patients.
