1CH  Liz Sniderman, MSN APN CPNP-AC

Vascular anomalies represent a spectrum of disorders, with varying degrees of morbidity and mortality. Traditional therapies include surgery and sclerotherapy.

A novel approach to treatment is with Sirolimus, a medication prescribed by pediatric oncologists. This session will provide pediatric hematology/oncology nurses with the knowledge to safely care for children with VA who are taking Sirolimus and to participate in the interprofessional management of these children.
