CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of medical and radiation oncologists, urologists and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC).

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Effectively apply evidence-based research findings and other clinical and biologic factors in the best-practice selection of first-line therapy for patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC).
    • Recall the underlying research database supporting the FDA approval of anti-PD-1/anti-CTLA-4 combination therapy as first-line treatment for mRCC, and develop strategies to appropriately integrate this approach into patient care.
    • Appraise available clinical trial data evaluating combinations of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies with multikinase inhibitors for previously untreated mRCC, and counsel patients regarding the risks and benefits of these novel regimens.
    • Develop a rational approach to the sequencing of systemic therapies for patients with advanced RCC that progresses on first-line treatment, incorporating multikinase inhibitors, mTOR inhibitors, immunotherapeutic agents and other therapies.
    • Recognize side effects and toxicities commonly associated with approved and investigational therapeutic approaches, and use this information to develop supportive care plans for patients with RCC undergoing treatment with these agents and regimens.
    • Recall available and emerging data with other investigational agents and strategies currently in testing for RCC, and appropriately refer eligible patients for clinical trial participation.
