CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

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


    • Recall available data supporting the use of anti-PD-1 antibody therapy for bacillus Calmette-Guérin–resistant, high-risk, non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC), and determine how this strategy can be appropriately integrated into current care.
    • Evaluate the recent FDA approval of adjuvant anti-PD-1 antibody therapy for patients with high-risk muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC), and consider the current role of this treatment strategy.
    • Appreciate the impact of biologic and patient-specific factors on the selection and sequencing of treatment for patients with metastatic urothelial bladder cancer (mUBC).
    • Evaluate available clinical trial evidence with immune checkpoint inhibitors as monotherapy or as maintenance after platinum-based chemotherapy in the treatment of newly diagnosed mUBC.
    • Recall pivotal clinical trial findings leading to the FDA approval of novel compounds with unique mechanisms of action for previously treated locally advanced or metastatic UBC, and identify patients who may benefit from these approaches.
    • Implement a plan of care to recognize and manage side effects and toxicities associated with recently approved and emerging systemic therapies for advanced or metastatic UBC.
    • Develop an understanding of the biologic rationale for, available research findings with and ongoing studies evaluating promising investigational agents and strategies for patients with NMIBC, MIBC and mUBC.
