CBSSM Seminar: Financial Toxicity During Breast Cancer Treatment: A Qualitative Analysis to Inform Strategies for Mitigation

February 4, 2022

Laila Gharzai, M.D., L.L.M.: Financial toxicity has a substantial impact on patients undergoing cancer treatment. Strategies to mitigate this complex problem have found challenges in facing its multifaceted nature. As a postdoctoral research fellow at CBSSM, I performed a qualitative study of patients who experienced financial toxicity during cancer treatment in order to contextualize their experience within an existing framework for understanding financial toxicity. This enabled identification of a novel theme impacting the experience of financial toxicity, and led us to identify four major areas where additional work is needed to mitigate financial toxicity. This work will be placed in…

Free webinar: Novel outpatient COVID treatments

January 18, 2022

Previously, monoclonal antibodies (mAb) have been the primary outpatient treatment for high-risk individuals with COVID-19 to reduce hospitalization and severe illness, in addition to vaccines. Only one monoclonal antibody, sotrovimab, is effective against the omicron variant currently circulating, resulting in a shortage of treatments. Fortunately, there are now new promising antiviral treatments including ritonavir boosted nirmatrelvir (Paxlovid) and molnupiravir. However, providers are unfamiliar with these medications, including how to manage drug-drug interactions with Paxlovid and the process for prescribing these medications, which are in short supply. Participants will increase prescribing these novel medications/treatments. https://ww2.highmarksce.com/micme/index.cfm?do=pln.viewActivity&style=2&preview=true&plannerID=4961
