Featuring an interview with Dr Erika Hamilton. (Audio Program)

CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of breast cancer.


    • Individualize the selection and sequence of systemic therapy for ER-positive metastatic breast cancer (mBC), considering the patient's clinical presentation and prior treatment course.
    • Recall the FDA indications for the commercially available CDK4/6 inhibitors, and discern how these agents can be optimally employed in the care of patients with ER-positive mBC.
    • Appraise available research data and expert perspectives to formulate appropriate clinical recommendations for patients who experience disease progression on CDK4/6 inhibitors in combination with hormonal therapy.
    • Recognize the FDA-approved indication for alpelisib in combination with fulvestrant for postmenopausal patients with progressive ER-positive, HER2-negative mBC harboring PI3K (phosphoinositide-3 kinase) pathway mutations.
    • Appreciate the side effects associated with systemic therapies commonly used in the care of patients with ER-positive mBC, and develop strategies to prevent or ameliorate toxicities to support quality of life and continuation of treatment.
    • Assess ongoing research evaluating novel agents and treatment strategies, such as AKT inhibitors and SERDs (selective estrogen receptor degraders), and identify patients with ER-positive mBC who may be eligible for clinical trial participation.

    Research To Practice is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
