Program Overview

Personalized Assessment in Advanced RCC Decision Making: Leveraging the Evidence and Patient Characteristics to Inform Decisions Along the Disease Continuum is a case-based, interactive, live symposium to be held adjunct to the 2018 Annual Genitourinary Cancers Symposium in San Francisco. Clinical decision making in the setting of metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has dramatically changed over recent years. New drug approvals have raised questions about how rational treatment planning and effective sequencing of new and older standards of care can optimize patient outcomes. Additionally, real-world experience with newer agents and new trial data continue to refine treatment strategies in RCC. Most recently, the promise of improved outcomes in the first-line metastatic setting has arisen.

This educational program will focus on evidence-based, state-of-the-art management strategies designed to meet the specific needs of oncologists who treat patients with genitourinary (GU) cancers. A team of experts in RCC will lead participants through an in-depth exploration of the latest data and their clinical implications.

Target Audience:

This educational program is directed toward all attendees of the 2018 ASCO Genitourinary Cancers Symposium, including medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and urologists interested in the treatment of RCC. Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment and management of patients with RCC are also invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:

  • Appraise the potential influence of recent data sets on frontline standards of care for patients with metastatic RCC
  • Use evidence-based dosing schedules for patients with RCC that may help to optimize treatment adherence and patient outcomes
  • Integrate key individual patient characteristics into the development of effective treatment sequencing strategies for patients with RCC
  • Describe emerging combination treatment strategies that are being evaluated for patients with RCC
