Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, confidence, and competence of learners to select and integrate new biomarker testing and therapies into individualized treatment plans for early-stage breast cancer.

Target Audience
This program is intended for medical oncologists, pharmacists, NP/PAs, nurses, genetic counselors, pathologists, and other healthcare professionals who care for patients with breast cancer.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Develop genetic testing strategies that incorporate best communication techniques and expert guidance for all patient subgroups with EBC that may benefit from PARP inhibition
  • Identify patients who should be tested for BRCA mutations and communicate to colleagues and patients the rationale and steps for corrective action for those not tested
  • Communicate to colleagues and patients the improvement in overall survival gained by adding PARP inhibition to the adjuvant treatment of patients with germline BRCA mutations
  • Integrate PARP inhibition into treatment plans and sequence strategies for patients that may also be appropriate for other newly approved treatments for 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
