The goal of this educational initiative is to provide oncology pharmacists, nurse practitioners, and nurses with advanced knowledge of granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) biosimilars for supportive care treatment, including the issues and challenges of incorporating them into practice and during the COVID-19 era. Thus, better enabling them to guide their healthcare system in incorporating G-CSF biosimilars into treatment plans, guidelines, and formulary/pathways, consult with their healthcare provider colleagues and provide education to patients to empower them to successfully take part in the shared decision-making process involving G-CSF biosimilar therapies.
Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

Discuss the current data supporting short- and long-acting granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) use in prevention of febrile neutropenia and during the COVID-19 era

Formulate practical approaches to incorporating G-CSF biosimilars into healthcare system formularies and/or clinical pathways

Recognize the need for educational interventions that will improve healthcare providers’ understanding of G-CSF biosimilars use in cancer supportive care
