Overview

Program Overview

New agents, emerging strategies, and optimization of established regimens are changing the delivery of breast cancer therapy. Over the past decade, tremendous progress in the treatment of breast cancers has led to improved outcomes for patients, but has also complicated clinical management in this setting. We are excited to announce the 1st Annual Paris Breast Cancer Conference™, a comprehensive educational conference designed to help practitioners place emerging information into the context of landmark clinical trial data and established standards of care, with the goal of ultimately improving the care they provide to their patients with breast cancers.

This practical and interactive multiday program features a faculty of leading international experts who will provide up-to-date information and guidance via didactic lectures, question-and-answer sessions, and extended interactive, case-based panel discussions. This format will enable participants to engage the faculty in a direct exchange of perspectives, personal experiences, and strategies related to clinical challenges in the management of breast cancers.

This meeting is not to be missed! The activity will to continue the legacy and tradition of Physicians’ Education Resource®, LLC, in providing clinicians with the knowledge and confidence to maintain state-of-the-art care and to optimize outcomes for patients with cancer.

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward health care professionals who practice primarily outside of the United States. It is specifically designed for medical oncologists and other health care professionals (physicians, physicians-in-training, oncology nurses, pharmacists, physicians' assistants, etc) involved in the treatment and management of patients with breast cancer.

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:

  • Incorporate current guidelines and recent data on local and locoregional therapies into the treatment of patients with breast cancer
  • Integrate biomarkers, molecular assays, and other risk assessment tools in treatment decision making for breast cancer appropriately
  • Review current standards and emerging data regarding systemic therapies for the treatment of early-stage, locally advanced, and metastatic breast cancer
  • Consider therapeutic effectiveness, as well as patient and tumor characteristics, in individualizing treatment plans for patients receiving systemic therapies for breast cancer
  • Identify appropriate clinical trials designed to benefit patients with breast cancer
