Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, competence, and performance of learners to plan individualized treatment for patients with melanoma.

Target Audience
This program is intended for oncologists, dermatologists, advanced practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers involved in the care of patients with melanoma.

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

  • Create individualized treatment strategies using biomarkers, clinical characteristics, mutational analyses, and patient preferences to individualize frontline and subsequent treatment approaches for patients with melanoma
  • Integrate emerging data on therapeutic sequencing options into the context of treatment for patients with melanoma
  • Evaluate the efficacy and safety evidence of combination regimens to individualize therapeutic strategies for patients with melanoma at first relapse
  • Plan appropriate treatment strategies using all available agents and classes to provide efficacious combination therapies to heavily pretreated patients with relapsed/refractory melanoma
  • Develop a proactive management plan for adverse events associated with targeted and immunotherapeutic approaches used to treat melanoma
  • Evaluate emerging data with novel investigational targeted and immunotherapeutic approaches to aid in clinical trial participation
  • Enhance communications between patients with melanoma and their physicians by increasing patient understanding of the complexities of their disease, its prevention, risks, diagnosis, management, and clinical prognosis
  • Explain the available therapeutic options, management strategies, disease management interventions, and clinical outcomes in melanoma to patients, family members, and caregivers
  • Inform patients on the need for and risks of pharmacotherapies, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, and other interventions and how this may benefit their disease state, as well as what the potential outcomes may be, as part of enhancing patient informed consent to facilitate patient–physician communication and the decision-making process and partnership
