CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of hepatobiliary and pancreatic cancers.


    • Consider age, performance status, degree of liver function and other clinical and logistical factors in the selection of first- and later-line therapy for patients with unresectable or metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
    • Appreciate available and emerging Phase III data with novel first-line treatment strategies for unresectable or metastatic HCC and other hepatobiliary cancers, and discuss how these approaches can be optimally integrated into the current and future clinical care of patients.
    • Develop an understanding of available clinical trial findings with isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) inhibitors for patients with advanced cholangiocarcinoma and an IDH1 mutation, and appropriately identify individuals for whom this novel strategy is warranted.
    • Assess key data sets supporting the use of fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) inhibitors for previously treated, unresectable locally advanced or metastatic cholangiocarcinoma with an FGFR2 fusion or other rearrangement, and consider how these agents can be appropriately and safely integrated into clinical management algorithms.
    • Recall clinical trial data with approved and investigational systemic interventions for localized, locally advanced or metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma, and establish an evidence-based approach to therapeutic selection for patients.
    • Evaluate available and emerging data with investigational agents and strategies currently in clinical testing for HCC, pancreatic cancer and hepatobiliary cancers, and appropriately refer eligible patients for trial participation.
