SITC TOXICITY MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP
March 31, 2017 • Washington, DC
SITC invites you to attend the consensus-building Toxicity Management Workshop from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. to address two pressing needs for the advancement of the field:
Creating treatment algorithms for managing immunotherapy-related toxicities
Developing standardized templates for adverse event management in protocols for clinical trials
The workshop will be a multi-stakeholder effort of 100 thought leaders from government, academia, industry, scientific organizations and other related entities. These stakeholders want to move quickly and convene to address the growing need for standardization to provide better treatments and ultimately, improve patient outcomes. Register today, as space is limited. Onsite registration is available, provided there is space.
The Toxicity Management Workshop is supported in part by grants from AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Merck & Co., Inc.
