Summary and Audience Question and Answer Session
Brian Costello, MD

The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, confidence, and performance of learners to integrate recent findings into the treatment of patients with renal cell carcinoma.
This program is intended for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers who care for patients with RCC.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe the rationale for combining immune checkpoint inhibitors with another immune checkpoint inhibitor or VEGFR TKIs for the treatment of RCC
- Identify patients most likely to benefit from immune checkpoint inhibitor–based combination therapy based on risk and biomarker assessment, along with patient medical and treatment history
- Plan optimal first-line treatment for individual patients with advanced or metastatic RCC, taking into consideration immune checkpoint inhibitor combination options, available clinical evidence, expert recommendations, and patient preferences
- Apply clinical evidence and expert recommendations to select optimal treatment for patients with progressive RCC after 1 or more previous lines of therapy
- Plan therapeutic strategies that optimize the sequence of therapies to provide the best outcome to patients with RCC
- Manage specific disease-related complications or adverse events associated with immuno-oncology combinations for advanced RCC
