CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Develop a long-term care plan for patients diagnosed with metastatic colorectal cancer, considering biomarker profile, tumor location, prior exposure to systemic therapy, symptomatology, performance status (PS) and personal goals of treatment.
    • Use HER2 status, PD-L1 combined positive score and other clinical and biologic factors to optimize the selection and sequencing of systemic therapy for patients with locally advanced or metastatic gastric, gastroesophageal junction and esophageal cancers.
    • Consider age, PS, degree of liver function and other clinical factors in the selection of first- and later-line therapy for patients with unresectable or metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma.
    • Recall clinical trial data with approved and investigational systemic interventions for localized, locally advanced and metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma, and establish an evidence-based approach to therapeutic selection for patients.
    • Appreciate the molecular heterogeneity of cholangiocarcinomas, and apply available clinical research findings to individualize therapy for patients with unresectable and metastatic disease.
    • Appraise available and emerging data with investigational agents currently in clinical testing for gastrointestinal cancers, and where applicable, refer eligible patients for clinical trial participation.
