New training offering: immunotherapy in clinical practice

We are excited to announce a new training offering developed and delivered by the BSI to demystify the science behind immunotherapy and explain the application of these therapies in the clinic.

The last 15 years have seen new forms of immunotherapy introduced into almost every area of clinical practice. With this in mind, we offer an interactive training programme providing the essential immunology knowledge to support the care of patients treated with immunotherapies. By equipping researchers, clinicians and HCPs with tangible information that they can take back to their clinical or research area, course participants can continue to advance patient care and outcomes in immune-related conditions.

It is designed to train anyone either working directly with patients and keen to better understand the science, or who has limited contact with patients but would like to understand the clinical application of these therapies better.

It is open to all HCPs and clinicians involved in the care of patients receiving immunotherapy, including doctors, nurses, hospital pharmacists, clinical scientists, physician associates and GPs. However, it is also greatly valuable to researchers and industry-based product development teams interested in how these drugs are utilised in clinical practice. 

Each training day includes foundation sessions on immunology and immunotherapy, followed by a clinical workshop tailored for different clinical areas to put the new knowledge gained into practice. It is delivered online by engaging experts in the field with two initial workshops in June 2024 – rheumatology and gastroenterology, and more to come! You can find out more and book your place here.
