Program Overview
Join us for this live, CME-certified, interactive webinar with neuro-oncology experts Dr. Andrew Lassman, Dr. Tim Cloughesy, and Dr. Rimas Lukas, focused on the latest management approaches for patients with glioblastoma.

Goal Statement
The goal of this program is to improve the knowledge, confidence, and competence of learners to apply recent findings and integrate new and emerging agents into the treatment of patients with GBM.

Target Audience
This program is intended for medical oncologists, neuro-oncologists, and other healthcare professionals who care for patients with GBM.

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

  • Integrate new targeted therapeutic agents into clinical practice for patients with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) based on individual patient and tumor characteristics
  • Identify which biomarkers should be assessed in patients with newly diagnosed and recurrent GBM
  • Describe the rationale for targeting NTRK gene fusion in GBM and the effects of NTRK fusions on standard treatment selection
  • Discuss the current and emerging clinical data on promising small-molecule TKIs and other therapies for specific targets in the treatment of recurrent GBM
  • Select optimal treatment for patients with recurrent GBM based on current evidence and molecular markers
  • Refer appropriate patients with GBM for enrollment on a clinical trial
