CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of gastroesophageal cancers.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Use HER2 status, PD-L1 combined positive score, clinical factors and personal preferences to individualize the selection and sequence of systemic therapy for patients with locally advanced or metastatic gastric, gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) or esophageal cancer.
    • Describe the published research data with immune checkpoint inhibitors alone or in combination with chemotherapy in the management of gastric, GEJ and esophageal cancers, and optimally integrate these strategies into nonresearch treatment algorithms.
    • Recall available data with and the FDA approval of trastuzumab deruxtecan for patients with previously treated HER2-overexpressing gastric or GEJ cancer, and discern the current and future clinical applicability of this treatment strategy.
    • Recognize common and rare side effects associated with approved and investigational agents used in the care of patients with gastroesophageal cancers, and use this information to develop appropriate and effective management plans.
    • Review the rationale for, available data with and ongoing research evaluating novel agents and strategies for gastroesophageal cancers, and effectively prioritize clinical trial opportunities for eligible patients.
