CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of bladder cancer.


    • Review published clinical trial data leading to the FDA approval of erdafitinib for patients with advanced urothelial bladder cancer (UBC) and susceptible FGFR3 or FGFR2 genetic alterations whose disease has progressed during or after at least 1 line of platinum-containing chemotherapy, and determine how this agent may be appropriately integrated into clinical practice.
    • Recall pivotal clinical trial findings leading to the FDA approval of enfortumab vedotin for previously treated locally advanced or metastatic UBC, and identify patients for whom treatment with this novel compound would be appropriate.
    • Evaluate the recent FDA approval of the novel antibody-drug conjugate sacituzumab govitecan, and optimally integrate this agent into the care of patients with advanced UBC who have experienced disease relapse on chemotherapy and an immune checkpoint inhibitor.
    • Recognize how biologic and patient-specific factors influence the selection and sequencing of treatment for patients with advanced UBC.
    • Consider the available clinical trial evidence with immune checkpoint inhibitors in the treatment of UBC, and determine the current utility of these agents in clinical practice.
    • Appraise available research data and ongoing clinical trials evaluating anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies alone or in combination with other systemic therapies for UBC, and counsel appropriately selected patients about participation in active protocols.
    • Develop an understanding of the biologic rationale for, available research findings with and ongoing studies evaluating promising investigational agents and strategies for UBC.
