The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, confidence, competence, and performance of learners to integrate current and emerging therapies into the treatment of patients with pancreatic cancer.
This educational program is intended for medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, and other healthcare providers who treat patients with pancreatic cancer.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Apply individualized treatment strategies for the selection and sequencing of therapies for localized and advanced pancreatic cancer
- Examine the role of PARP inhibitor maintenance after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy for patients with newly diagnosed pancreatic cancer and a germline BRCA mutation
- Appraise the rationale and available/emerging data for the use of emerging and investigational therapies (novel chemotherapy platforms, PARP inhibitor, immunotherapy [and immunotherapy-based combinations], stroma-targeting agents, tumor treating fields therapy, and others) and integrate into treatment planning as clinically applicable
- Incorporate strategies to effectively identify and manage disease-related and treatment-related adverse events to support quality of life and continuation of therapy
