Jose Lutzky, MD, from Mount Sinai Medical Center, discusses the best practices for monitoring patients on immunotherapy.

Nurses shouldn’t rely on the patient to reach out to them, either. For treatments that could possibly result in these kinds of adverse events, it is better to take a more proactive approach to patient monitoring.
