The goal of this educational curriculumis to improve the knowledge, competence, and performance of learners to plan individualized treatment for patients with HR+/HER2- EBC.
This educational curriculum is intended for medical oncologists, breast surgeons, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of breast cancer.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Understand the medical need for new targeted therapies to treat patients with HR+/HER2- EBC and a higher risk of recurrence along with the underlying factors affecting the decision-making process for patients and potential barriers to adoption of novel treatment options
- Appraise current/emerging published data and consensus-based guidelines to inform the use of biomarkers and genomic classifiers to assess risk of recurrence
- Individualize the selection of systemic therapy for appropriate patients with HR+/HER2- EBC to include CDK4/6 inhibitors with or without endocrine therapy
- Develop strategies to anticipate, monitor, and manage adverse events with current and emerging therapies for HR+/HER2- EBC to support quality of life and continuation of treatment
- Identify patients with HR+/HER2- EBC eligible for enrollment on ongoing clinical studies investigating novel therapies
