CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of oncology nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists involved in the treatment of hepatobiliary cancers.

    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 hepatobiliary cancers.


    • Consider the impact of age, performance status and other clinical factors on the selection of up-front therapy for unresectable or metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and counsel patients regarding personalized treatment recommendations.
    • Appreciate Phase III data with novel first-line combination strategies for unresectable or metastatic HCC, and discuss how these regimens may be optimally integrated into patient care.
    • Communicate the benefits and risks of approved systemic interventions to patients with progressive HCC to facilitate shared decision-making.
    • Recognize the molecular heterogeneity of cholangiocarcinomas and other biliary tract cancers, and appreciate the biologic rationale for efforts to exploit documented abnormalities in patients.
    • Assess key data sets supporting the recent FDA approvals of fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) inhibitors for previously treated, unresectable locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma with an FGFR2 fusion or other rearrangement, and consider how these agents can be appropriately and safely integrated into clinical management algorithms.
    • Develop an understanding of available clinical trial findings with isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) inhibitors for patients with advanced cholangiocarcinoma and an IDH1 mutation, and identify individuals for whom this novel strategy is warranted.
    • Evaluate available data documenting the efficacy of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibody therapy in combination with chemotherapy as first-line treatment for advanced biliary tract cancers, and consider the potential role of this strategy.
    • Understand the side effects and toxicities associated with various agents and regimens commonly used in the management of advanced HCC and other cancers of the biliary tract, and implement early and effective responses to improve patient quality of life and maintain treatment.
    • Recall available and emerging data with investigational agents and strategies currently in clinical testing for HCC and other biliary tract cancers, and appropriately refer patients for trial participation.
