CE Disclosures and Faculty Information


    The annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) is unmatched in its significance with regard to the advancement of breast cancer treatment. This unique conference provides many clinicians and scientists from around the world a forum for discussing critical issues in the prevention and management of breast cancer. Therefore, SABCS is targeted by many members of the clinical research community as the optimal time to unveil new clinical data. This creates an environment in which yearly published results from a plethora of ongoing clinical trials lead to the emergence of new therapeutic agents and changes in the indications for existing treatments across all breast cancer subtypes.

    Although SABCS currently offers online access to the vast majority of the poster and plenary presentations from the annual meeting, the absence of expert assessment concerning practical applications may yield confusion among community oncologists who are challenged almost daily to appropriately apply a multitude of scientific findings across diverse tumors. Thus, identification of those data sets with immediate or impending relevance to the delivery of quality breast cancer care, in conjunction with professional commentary to address resultant practice ambiguity, may prove vastly beneficial to those physicians who are unable to make the annual pilgrimage to San Antonio. To bridge the gap between research and patient care, this CME activity will deliver a serial review of the most important emerging data sets from the latest SABCS, including expert perspectives on how these new evidence-based concepts can and should be incorporated into on- and off-protocol patient care. This activity will assist medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, breast/general surgeons, nurses and other healthcare professionals in the formulation of optimal clinical management strategies and the timely application of new research findings to best-practice patient care.
