In this webinar, GatewayC met Dr Laura Cove-Smith, Consultant in Medical Oncology, and Dr Ahmed Salem, Clinical Senior Lecturer in Lung Cancer Research and Honorary Clinical Oncology Consultant.

Our speakers answered key questions from our audience, which included:

  • What can primary care practitioners do when we see patients with potential side-effects from immunotherapy or radiotherapy?
  • Is there any correlation between the level of toxicity and response to treatment?
  • Are there any red flags for picking up the signs and symptoms of immunotherapy?
  • What has been the impact of COVID-19 on patients undergoing immunotherapy?
  • Should patients undergoing immunotherapy have the COVID-19 vaccine?
  • Is immunotherapy always given as an IV?
  • How useful is the UKONS tool and does this cover the side effects of immunotherapy?
  • How quickly will side-effects occur, for example radiation pneumonitis?
  • Can radiation-induced colitis occur after the completion of radiotherapy?
  • How long after radiotherapy can memory loss occur?
