CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

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

    PURPOSE STATEMENT
    By providing information on the latest research developments in the context of expert perspectives, this CNE (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 breast cancer.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Apply existing and emerging research data in the diagnostic, therapeutic and supportive care of patients with early and advanced breast cancer.
    • Consider available and emerging research evidence to individualize the selection of neoadjuvant, adjuvant and extended-adjuvant therapy for patients with HER2-overexpressing localized breast cancer.
    • Implement a long-term clinical plan for the management of HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer (mBC), incorporating existing and investigational targeted treatments.
    • Appreciate the biologic rationale for and available data with novel immunotherapeutic approaches for mBC to facilitate their introduction into clinical practice.
    • Appraise published efficacy and safety data with the use of PARP inhibitors in patients with mBC harboring a BRCA1/2 mutation, and consider the diagnostic and therapeutic implications of these findings for nonresearch care.
    • Recall available data regarding the risks and benefits with CDK4/6 inhibitors and phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase (PI3K) inhibitors for ER-positive mBC, and discern how these agents can be optimally employed in the nonresearch care of these patients.
    • Develop a plan to manage the side effects associated with available and recently approved systemic therapies to support quality of life and continuation of treatment.
