Life on Ibrance

This webinar looks what you need to know when being treated with Ibrance, from scheduling appointments, negotiating dosages and managing side effects.

Ibrance is a kind of drug called CDK4/6 inhibitor that has been publicly funded in New Zealand since April 2020. In this webinar, our expert panel discusses how Ibrance is used in treatment for advanced breast cancer, managing common side effects and the practicalities of being on Ibrance.

This webinar may also be helpful for those taking Kisqali (ribociclib) and Verzenio (abemaciclib).
