Each 1-hour session will be divided into topic modules focused on current management, emerging research and novel agents and strategies under active investigation for breast cancer. Each event will employ an identical format that will include the following elements:

  • Moderator Dr Neil Love and a featured participating clinical investigator
  • Discussion of participating faculty treatment recommendations
  • Review of available clinical research findings
  • Community oncologist video case presentations
  • Interactive audience polling and extensive Q&A

    MODULE 1: Current Approaches to Treatment Decision-Making for Patients with ER-Positive Localized Breast Cancer

    MODULE 2: Integration of Novel Therapies into the Care of Patients with Localized Triple-Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC)

    MODULE 3: Current and Future Treatment Considerations for ER-Positive Metastatic Breast Cancer

    MODULE 4: Selection and Sequencing of Therapy for Metastatic TNBC

Target Audience
This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows, breast surgeons, radiation oncologists, oncology nurses and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of breast cancer.

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate the results of genomic assays and other patient- and treatment-related factors to personalize the use of adjuvant systemic therapy for patients with newly diagnosed ER-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer.
  • Comprehend available findings with CDK4/6 inhibitors for localized ER-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer, and assess the current role of these agents as a component of adjuvant treatment.
  • Consider available research evaluating anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibody-based approaches for localized triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).
  • Appraise published efficacy and safety data with PARP inhibitors for patients with localized and metastatic breast cancer (mBC) harboring BRCA1/2 mutations.
  • Review available research with the use of commercially available CDK4/6 inhibitors for the treatment of ER-positive mBC, and optimally incorporate these agents into patient care.
  • Recognize the frequency of PI3K pathway mutations in ER-positive mBC, and employ evidence-based approaches designed to target these aberrations for patients with ER-positive, PIK3CA-mutated disease.
  • Understand available data supporting the use of chemotherapy in combination with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies for newly diagnosed PD-L1-positive metastatic TNBC, and use this information to identify patients who may be appropriate for this approach.
  • Incorporate published research in the selection and sequencing of available therapeutic agents for patients with PD-L1-negative TNBC or those who experience disease progression on front-line chemoimmunotherapy.
  • Appreciate the clinical relevance of HER2-low breast cancer, and understand available and emerging management approaches for this subset of the disease.
  • Assess early data with and ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel agents and treatment strategies under development for ER-positive and triple-negative breast cancer.
