CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematologist-oncologists and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of breast cancer (BC).

    OVERVIEW OF ACTIVITY
    BC continues to be one of the most rapidly evolving fields in medical oncology. Results from numerous ongoing trials lead to the continual emergence of new therapeutic agents, treatment strategies and diagnostic and prognostic tools. In order to offer optimal patient care, including the option of clinical trial participation, the practicing cancer clinician must be well informed of these advances. Featuring information on the latest research developments along with expert perspectives, this CME activity is designed to assist medical oncologists, hematologist-oncologists and hematology-oncology fellows with the formulation of up-to-date clinical management strategies.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Implement a long-term clinical plan for the management of metastatic HER2-positive BC, incorporating existing, recently approved and emerging targeted treatments.
    • Consider published data to guide the use of biomarkers and genomic assays to assess risk and individualize therapy for patients with hormone receptor-positive BC in the neoadjuvant, adjuvant and extended-adjuvant settings.
    • Develop an evidence-based algorithm for the treatment of advanced, hormone receptor-positive pre- and postmenopausal BC, including the use of endocrine, biologic and chemotherapeutic agents.
    • Consider published research and patient preferences in the selection and sequencing of available and investigational therapeutic agents for metastatic triple-negative BC.
    • Counsel appropriately selected patients with BC about participation in ongoing clinical trials.
