A panel of interdisciplinary melanoma experts from Moffitt Cancer Center will discuss what patients with melanoma and their caregivers need to know about COVID-19 and about how to best navigate their cancer care during the pandemic.
Join us online for an informative webinar on topics highly relevant to patients with melanoma during the COVID-19 pandemic to help answer some of those questions. Patients and their caregivers will hear from the experts at Moffitt Cancer Center on issues concerning many people right now, such as:
What are the potential consequences and risks of delaying diagnosis treatment in the current environment?
- Initial diagnosis/Surgery
- Adjuvant/Neoadjuvant/Metastatic Disease
Does treatment with IO/oral make patients more likely to develop COVID or more susceptible to adverse effects?
What is the impact on clinical trials and other aspects of melanoma research?
Is there any danger of getting standard radiation or SRS during COVID?
What is your doctor/clinic/hospital doing to protect you when you come to the hospital and/or get treatment?
What resources are available to help?
