COR2ED Medical Education: In this podcast, Beth Wittmer RN, Director of Care Management at Florida Cancer Specialists, USA and Prof. Hans Prenen, GI Medical Oncologist from Antwerp University Hospital, Belgium, discuss the management of dermatological side effects that patients may experience when receiving treatment with multikinase inhibitors, such as regorafenib, sunitinib, cabozantinib amongst others. They discuss the different skin related side effects that a patient may experience such as hand foot skin reactions, rash, hair and nail changes as well as mucosal changes. The experts note that these side effects can affect a patient emotionally and impair their quality of life so the objective is to effectively treat and manage side effects and to keep patients on the treatment, whilst maintaining reasonable quality of life. They discuss preventative measures, the importance of discussing potential side effects with the patient and when to involve a dermatologist as well as dose management strategies to enable the patient to stay on their cancer treatment.
