The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, confidence, competence, and performance of learners to integrate current and emerging therapies into the treatment of patients with HCC and BTC.
This educational program is intended for medical oncologists, hepatologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, and other healthcare providers who treat patients with HCC and BTC.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify patients with hepatobiliary cancer most likely to benefit from immune checkpoint inhibitor–based combination therapy based on tumor characteristics, previous treatment, and patient characteristics and preferences
- Evaluate clinical data on the use of immune checkpoint inhibitor–based treatment approaches for patients with early or intermediate-stage HCC
- Plan optimal, individualized therapy approaches using immune checkpoint inhibitor–based regimens for patients with advanced or metastatic HCC, as clinically appropriate
- Develop strategies to identify and mitigate unique adverse events associated with immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy in patients with HCC or BTC
