I agree that this educational programme:

This e-learning will help nurses and physicians alike better understand skin reactions to targeted therapy in GI and liver cancers. The course aims to support the prevention, diagnosis and management of these dermatologic adverse events and encourages a multidisciplinary team approach to optimise patient care.

Targeted therapies lead to more dermatologic adverse events than are seen with non-targeted therapies. Skin toxicity may lead to changes in dosing, physical and psychological discomfort or pain, therefore increasing the risk of total treatment interruption, potentially leading to exacerbation of the patient’s cancer. Pre-emptively addressing and treating these potential skin toxicities may improve the quality of life for the patient and allow them to continue on therapy longer. A multidisciplinary team effort amongst healthcare professionals in the prevention, diagnosis, and management of skin toxicities associated with targeted therapy in liver and GI cancers, including hepatocellular carcinoma, colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, neuroendocrine tumours, gastric cancer and GIST is widely recommended as a best practice approach.


A number of recognised CME credits are available after completing this e-learning course. The e-learning is accredited for European CME Credits (ECMECs) and certified for AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM as well as American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) MOC credit.
