In this educational podcast, Veerle Lamotte and Paola Belardi share their successful experience of managing patients treated with VEGFR-TKIs for select solid tumours.

The short 15-minute discussion captures and provides you with their useful insight on:

1. The safety profile of VEGFR-TKIs alone or in combination with PD-1 inhibitors in hepatocellular cancer (HCC), differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) & advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) and how to recognise side effects & understand appropriate management

2. How to best manage patients both prior to & during treatment to ensure optimal treatment success, including prehabilitation of patients prior to treatment & management of side effects on treatment

Veerle and Paola have many years nursing experience and present views not only from the perspective of the nurse, but also with relevance across geographies.

This is the first collaboration between GI NURSES CONNECT and GU NURSES CONNECT on an educational programme offering a valuable resource that is not limited to one tumour type.

This GI NURSES CONNECT and GU NURSES CONNECT podcast is also available on
Castos, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Google Podcasts.
