This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists-oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of breast cancer.
OVERVIEW OF ACTIVITY
Individualized treatment decisions for patients with metastatic breast cancer are driven by disease and patient characteristics. Estrogen receptor (ER)-positive disease, which represents approximately 65% of all cases, is perhaps the most nuanced in regard to therapeutic decision-making in the advanced-disease setting. In recent years, several groundbreaking clinical data sets and related FDA actions have significantly and unprecedentedly altered the treatment algorithm for patients with ER-positive metastatic breast cancer. Foremost among these developments have been the recent FDA approvals of the cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) 4 and 6 inhibitors palbociclib, ribociclib and abemaciclib. Many areas of controversy and educational need exist within community practice, specifically in the management of ER-positive metastatic disease and the integration of CDK4/6 inhibitors into routine care. This program will present the perspectives of leading clinical investigators to provide clinicians with therapeutic strategies to address the disparate needs of patients with ER-positive metastatic breast cancer. Upon completion of this CME activity, medical oncologists should be able to formulate an up-to-date and more complete approach to the care of these patients.
Research To Practice is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
