  • Develop genetic testing and risk assessment strategies that incorporate expert guidance to identify all patient subgroups with EBC at high risk for recurrence
  • Discuss with patients how their risk of progression affects prognosis and therapeutic planning
  • Identify patients with EBC most likely to benefit from recently approved neoadjuvant/adjuvant targeted or immunotherapy agents
  • Plan adjuvant therapy using PARP inhibitor, immune checkpoint inhibitor, and/or CDK4/6 inhibitors for select patients with EBC
  • Manage treatment-related adverse events in the early-stage breast cancer setting associated with new treatment options to improve adherence, improve patient experience and optimize outcomes
