This program will provide expert perspectives from medical oncology and pathology to facilitate state-of-the-art clinical management strategies for patients with HR-positive/HER2-negative early breast cancer, including information on the optimal utilization of Ki67 testing in HR-positive/HER2-negative early breast cancer.
The goal of this educational curriculum is to improve the knowledge, competence, and performance of learners to optimally assess patients with HR-positive/HER2-negative early breast cancer for Ki67 and accurately report, interpret, and apply results of the testing to optimal therapy selection.
This program is intended for oncologists, pathologists, histotechologists, pharmacists, oncology nurses, and other healthcare professionals who care for patients with breast cancer.
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
- Evaluate the clinical validity, utility, and differences among Ki67 assessment techniques
- Integrate best practices for Ki67 testing methodology, standardization, and reporting
- 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 oncologists, pathologists and the multidisciplinary team on recent clinical evidence to guide personalized treatment planning for HR-positive/HER2-negative early breast cancer
- Identify patients with HR-positive/HER2-negative early breast cancer that expresses Ki67 who may be eligible for ongoing clinical trials
