You will usually be given durvalumab at a day unit as an outpatient. Durvalumab can be given on its own or with other cancer drugs.
During treatment you usually see a cancer doctor, a specialist nurse, and a specialist pharmacist. This is who we mean when we mention doctor, nurse or pharmacist in this information.
Before, or on the day of, treatment, a nurse or person trained to take blood (phlebotomist) may take a blood sample from you.
You will see a doctor or nurse before you have treatment. They will talk to you about your blood results and ask you how you have been feeling. If your blood results are okay, the pharmacist will prepare your treatment.
Durvalumab is given as a drip into a vein (intravenous infusion). It is given over 1 hour.
