Educating Patients With Advanced RCC on Side Effects of Available Combination Therapies
Dr. Hutson explains approaches to educating patients on potential side effects of immunotherapy combinations for kidney cancer, empowering them to manage side effects and maintain quality of life while getting clinical benefit from these life-extending therapies.
Overview of the Systemic Treatment Options for Advanced RCC
Kidney cancer, which once had few treatment options, now has multiple oral targeted therapies leading to improved survival; immunotherapy combinations further increased clinical benefit over previous options, providing clinicians several approved regimens from which to choose the optimal therapy for each patient.
A Patient’s Experience With Initial Treatment for RCC
Mr. Fuentes felt it was important to understand the range of potential side effects to anticipate how his body would potentially react to treatment for RCC and determine his physical abilities and support needs, but was most focused on whether his first post-treatment scan showed tumor shrinkage.
The Role of Registered Nurses in the Multidisciplinary Treatment of Advanced RCC
Nurses play a key role in kidney cancer care by educating patients on medications, closely monitoring and managing side effects, coordinating care, providing emotional support, and serving as the first line of communication with patients about treatment concerns.
Navigating a Diagnosis of RCC
After his initial fear, Mr. Fuentes educated himself extensively on cancer to understand his diagnosis, which along with having a treatment plan in place, specialist referrals, and tolerable side effects, helps him maintain a positive mindset and manageable quality of life with stage 4 disease.
A Patient’s Experience With an RCC Diagnosis
Mr. Cesar Fuentes had a kidney tumor surgically removed; lymph node and bone metastases years later led to immune and targeted therapy which have provided significant tumor shrinkage and generally mild, manageable side effects.
