Immunotherapy: supporting patients in their cancer treatment
GPs have an important role in supporting patients receiving immunotherapy.
Immunotherapy can cause various side effects which can occur at any time and can affect individuals differently. When problems occur, it is important to identify which ones constitute an emergency requiring referral back to the treating specialist or a hospital admission, and which can be initially managed at home. Good supportive care can minimise side effects, leading to better quality of life for the patient and less distress for them and their family.
