Goal Statement
The goal of this program is to improve the knowledge and competence of learners in biomarker testing to guide selection of individualized treatments for patients with gastrointestinal malignancies.

Target Audience
This educational program is intended for medical oncologists and other healthcare professionals who treat patients with gastrointestinal malignancies.

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

  • Apply the available data and expert recommendations for molecular profiling in GI malignancies to guide treatment selection
  • Plan individualized therapeutic strategies for patients with GI malignancies based on predictive biomarker assessment
  • Counsel patients on tumor molecular profile and how this information will guide therapy decisions to optimize outcomes and quality of life
  • Appraise ongoing clinical trials for novel biomarker-driven treatment strategies in GI malignancies for patient counsel and potential enrollment
