This edition of Medical Crossfire®,
filmed in conjunction with the 34th Annual CFS™ Chemotherapy Foundation Symposium: Innovative Cancer Therapy for Tomorrow®,
is designed to provide a dynamic discussion of current and evolving paradigms in the treatment of advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC), including therapeutic sequencing, new targeted and immunotherapeutic agents, TKI resistance, and individualization of therapy. The Activity Chair, Robert Figlin, MD, along with our expert faculty, will emphasize the cutting-edge clinical research that is already shaping their practice, or is likely to do so in the not-too-distant future.
During this 60-minute CME-certified activity, the faculty will exchange perspectives and opinions on 5 key clinically relevant questions related to therapeutic resistance, newly approved therapeutics, recently reported long-term overall survival data, subgroup analyses from landmark studies, treatment selection and sequencing, as well as real-world experiences with treatment-related side effects.
This activity is directed toward medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and urologists who treat patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other healthcare providers who are interested in the care of patients with RCC may also attend.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be better prepared to:
Explain targeted and immunotherapeutic mechanistic approaches to overcome anti-angiogenic resistance in the management of RCC
Describe evidence-based approaches that inform optimized sequencing of current and emerging strategies for RCC
Discuss proactive measures to manage and mitigate treatment-related side effects associated with approaches for advanced RCC
Critically evaluate recent clinical trial data in the context of the established evidence guiding individualized treatment planning for patients with advanced RCC
