Monoclonal antibodies and immune checkpoint inhibitors
The new monoclonal antibodies and immune checkpoint inhibitors series provides an overview of the immune system, explains the different classes of monoclonal antibodies (MABs), including immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs), and describes the nursing considerations for the clinical management of patients receiving these drugs in the cancer setting.
The series comprises of three key sections:
1. Foundations of cancer immunity and monoclonal antibodies
2. Classes of monoclonal antibodies
3. Clinical management

eviQ Education in Brisbane!
ADAC Facilitators training day
Last month the team travelled to Brisbane to deliver our ADAC V4 Train the Trainer to over 200 facilitators representing cancer facilities all across Australia and New Zealand. The Brisbane training day was an important step in implementing the mammoth course, and also represented the reuniting of this community of practice, who rely on these events to share knowledge and network.
A big thank you to all the facilitators who travelled to join us in person and those who participated online! Resources, presentations and a recording of the day are available in the Facilitators Toolbox.
To capitalise on the team being up north, we were joined by eviQ representatives to deliver a roadshow covering seven cancer centres across Queensland and Northern NSW. The teams gained so much value being back in the hospital setting - face to face with health professionals across metro and regional sites.
To top it off, the teams hosted an exhibition booth at CNSA – engaging broadly with national cancer nurses. We were also very proud to present our poster on the Day of Treatment assessment tool!
We know everyone is eager to have the new course and we are working hard to get it to you! It’s taken us a bit of time to do this because the new course has been developed with three sets of health professionals in mind:
- Nurses working in the adult setting
- Nurses working in the paediatric setting
- Pharmacists working in the hospital setting
We are happy to say that modules 1 and 2 are complete, modules 3 and 7 have been reviewed and should be completed in the next month or so. Modules 4, 5 and 6 are being written and will go out for a first round review before our designers start to develop the modules.
Our aim is to have the course complete by the end of the year so stay with us, you won’t be disappointed!
