Goal Statement
The goal of this educational curriculum is to improve the knowledge, competence, and performance of learners to optimally assess the risk of patients with HR-positive/HER2-negative early breast cancer and select optimal individualized therapy for those with higher-risk disease.

Target Audience
This program is intended for oncologists, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, oncology nurses, and other healthcare professionals on the multidisciplinary team who care for patients with breast cancer.

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

  • Incorporate the evidence on the current use of Ki67 as a predictive and prognostic biomarker into clinical practice
  • Identify patients with high-risk features who may benefit from the addition of CDK4/6 inhibitor therapy to endocrine therapy in the adjuvant setting
  • Foster collaborative discussions and workflows between the oncology multidisciplinary team and patients to guide personalized treatment planning for HR-positive/HER2-negative early breast cancer
  • Promote strategies to ensure optimal adherence and persistence to prescribed oral CDK4/6 inhibitors in patients with early-stage breast cancer
  • Manage adverse events associated with oral targeted therapy in the adjuvant setting for patients with HR-positive/HER2-negative breast cancer
