CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

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

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Develop an optimal approach to adjuvant therapy for patients with ER-positive breast cancer (BC), considering the implications of patient age, tumor size/grade and other clinicopathologic factors.
    • Consider published data to guide the use of biomarkers and genomic classifiers in assessing risk and customizing therapy for patients with hormone receptor-positive BC in the adjuvant setting.
    • Understand the biologic rationale for and available data with CDK4/6 inhibitors in localized ER-positive, HER2-negative BC, and assess the potential role of these agents in this setting.
    • Develop an evidence-based algorithm for the treatment of advanced hormone receptor-positive pre- and postmenopausal BC, including endocrine, biologic and chemotherapeutic agents.
    • Recall the FDA indications for the commercially available CDK4/6 inhibitors, and discern how these agents can be optimally employed in the nonresearch care of patients with ER-positive metastatic BC.
    • Appraise available research data and clinical investigators’ perspectives to formulate appropriate clinical recommendations for patients who experience disease progression on CDK4/6 inhibitors in combination with hormonal therapy.
    • Recognize the approval of and published efficacy and safety data with the PI3 kinase inhibitor alpelisib in combination with fulvestrant for patients with metastatic HER2-negative BC harboring a PIK3CA mutation, and consider the diagnostic and therapeutic implications of these findings for nonresearch care.
    • Develop an understanding of available data with and potential clinical roles of other investigational agents and strategies to facilitate referral for clinical trial opportunities or prepare for the availability of these approaches.
