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 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

    • Implement a long-term clinical plan for the management of advanced HER2-positive breast cancer, incorporating existing and recently approved targeted treatments.
    • 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 current treatment algorithms.
    • 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.
    • Recall the FDA-endorsed indications for the commercially available CDK4/6 inhibitors, and discern how these agents can be optimally employed in the nonresearch care of patients with metastatic breast cancer.
    • Consider the FDA-approved indication for alpelisib in combination with fulvestrant in order to optimally employ this approach for postmenopausal patients with ER-positive, HER2-negative disease with PIK3CA mutations.
    • Appraise published efficacy and safety data with PARP inhibitors for patients with metastatic breast cancer harboring a BRCA1/2 mutation, and consider the diagnostic and therapeutic implications of these findings for nonresearch care.
    • 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.
