Program Overview

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) remains one of most difficult to treat of the solid tumors. However, RCC treatment is also one of the most rapidly evolving fields in oncology. New data suggest impending changes in both early-stage and metastatic RCC, including novel indications, combination approaches, and optimized adjuvant strategies. However, the use of adjuvant therapy for RCC remains an area of controversy. This activity will bring together renowned experts in RCC for in-depth critical review and debate on evidence from studies of adjuvant RCC therapy. To help clinicians synthesize available information, this satellite symposium will include didactic overviews of current data on adjuvant therapy, risk assessment, and patient selection; case reviews; and faculty debates on key areas of controversy and clinical uncertainty around the use of adjuvant therapy for RCC. The format of this activity will enable the audience to interact with the expert faculty panel and to gain evidence-based perspective on the use of adjuvant therapy for RCC.

Target Audience:

This educational program is directed toward urologists, 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.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Substantiate treatment decisions in the management of RCC at key decision points along the disease continuum based on the most pertinent clinical trial evidence for targeted therapy
  • Integrate knowledge of patient selection, single-agent, and combination strategies in the context of mechanisms of action, kinetics of response, best practices in monitoring, and key information that informs adjuvant treatment in the care of patients with RCC
  • Manage treatment-related toxicities as a component of therapeutic decision making in adjuvant treatment settings for patients with RCC
  • Evaluate recent clinical trial data, key ongoing trials, and how emerging adjuvant strategies may further impact the RCC treatment landscape
