    • Develop a long-term care plan for individuals diagnosed with metastatic colorectal cancer, considering available and emerging research data and clinical and patient disease characteristics.
    • Use published and recently presented data, HER2 status, PD-L1 combined positive score and other clinical and biologic factors to optimize the selection and sequence of systemic therapy for patients with advanced gastric, gastroesophageal junction and esophageal cancer.
    • Consider the evidence-based therapeutic options in addition to patient age, PS (performance status), degree of liver function and other clinical factors in the selection of first- and later-line therapy for unresectable or metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma.
    • Recall clinical trial data with approved and investigational systemic interventions for advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma, and establish an evidence-based approach to therapeutic selection for patients.
    • Appraise available and emerging data with investigational agents currently in clinical testing for gastrointestinal cancers, and appropriately refer eligible patients for clinical trial participation.
