If you will be doing the commercial CAR-T, Kymriah, I know they have a ton of education on their website (especially the REMs training). We also do trials at our site and require education on these as well. One of our NP’s put together a slide show that we present to RN’s as well as multiple binders on their inpatient unit that they can refer to. Every RN that is going to infuse the cells must be signed off. We are giving two more lectures in August and September to inpatient RN staff for educational purposes. Most of the education we have given has been a brief background on what CAR-T therapy is followed by what to monitor for. Since the bedside RNs are frontline, we have made sure they know what to look for and what to report. Documentation is also important so we have gone over the different neuro assessment tools used.
Hope this helps!

My hospital is going to hopefully begin to offer CAR T therapy in the next few months. I am preparing education for our nurses but wanted to see what other institutions had included in their nursing education. If anyone is willing to share what they used for education on CAR T I would be forever appreciative.
