PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Hospital admission is a frequent occurrence among patients with cancer, but their hospital stay often has features that may be different compared with patients without cancer. Management of these patients is complicated by drug-drug complications and serious grade treatment-related adverse events (trAEs) from their cancer treatment, which can be challenging. Hospitalists and other hospital-based clinicians need guidance and insight on the optimal monitoring, management, and intervention needed in these situations.
