CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of registered nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists involved in the treatment of HER2-positive breast cancer.

    PURPOSE STATEMENT
    By providing information on the latest research developments in the context of expert perspectives, this NCPD activity will assist oncology nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists with the formulation of state-of-the-art clinical management strategies to facilitate optimal care of patients with HER2-positive breast cancer.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Appreciate the key clinical variables that affect the use of preoperative therapy and the selection of therapeutic regimens for patients with HER2-overexpressing localized breast cancer, and integrate this information into treatment decision-making.
    • Apply available research evidence to individualize the selection and use of adjuvant systemic therapy for patients with HER2-positive localized breast cancer who received neoadjuvant treatment.
    • Implement a long-term clinical plan for the management of advanced HER2-positive breast cancer, incorporating existing and recently approved targeted agents and regimens.
    • Design an optimal approach to the clinical care of patients with HER2-positive breast cancer and CNS metastases, considering the implications of prior therapeutic exposure, symptomatology and other factors.
    • Appraise available research data leading to the recent FDA approval of trastuzumab deruxtecan for HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer, and identify patients who are appropriate candidates for treatment with this drug.
    • Develop an understanding of the mechanism of action of and pivotal clinical trial findings with tucatinib in combination with trastuzumab and capecitabine for patients with previously treated HER2-positive breast cancer, and optimally integrate this novel regimen into treatment algorithms.
    • Recognize common and rare side effects associated with approved anti-HER2 agents, and use this information to develop supportive management plans for patients undergoing treatment for HER2-positive breast cancer.
