The landscape of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) management has changed dramatically in recent years with the approval of new agents. The availability of these agents, along with data updates on their efficacy and safety, has complicated RCC treatment planning in terms of therapeutic selection and sequencing, toxicity management, and dose/schedule optimization. Additionally, positive results from studies of novel single-agent and combination therapies, biomarkers, and approved agents in new lines of therapy suggest more changes are on the horizon in RCC management. To help clinicians in their day-to-day practices, this case-based satellite symposium will broach a variety of clinical scenarios at key junctures in care, with the understanding that real-world scenarios cannot always be bucketed neatly into simple “lines of therapy.” The format of this activity will provide the audience with an opportunity to interact with the expert faculty panel and to reflect on how they arrive at the decisions they make, how their decisions compare with those of the faculty, whether they have a deep understanding of landmark trial results, and how to better contextualize evidence to optimize decision making at key decision points along the RCC treatment continuum.
This educational program is directed toward medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, and radiation oncologists 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 will be invited to participate.
