Focus on fatigue: Supportive care in the context of precision cancer medicine

Speaker: Florian Strasser

Florian Strasser digs into an exciting area of precision cancer medicine which gives a challenge of new toxicities. He focuses on fatigue, as an example, where is needed that a multi-professional team works together. He underlines a need to assess physical, emotional and cognitive fatigue. As a typical side effect, fatigue is illustrated for a number of targeted therapies in this video.
