ASCO: Navigating New Sequencing Challenges for the Treatment of Hepatocellular Carcinoma

ASCO: Navigating New Sequencing Challenges for the Treatment of Hepatocellular Carcinoma


Sunday, June 3, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Dinner and registration: 6:30 PM – 7:00 PM

Hilton Chicago
International Ballroom South (Second Level)
720 South Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL 60605

What You'll Learn:

  • Understand the rationale for targeted and immunotherapy strategies
  • How emerging data will potentially change treatment paradigms
  • Effective treatments when curative therapy isn't an option

Overview:

Historically, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been associated with poor outcomes, in large part due to the few effective treatment options available for patients who are ineligible for treatment with curative intent. However, recent approvals and emerging resection or liver transplant strategies for HCC are transforming care and improving patient outcomes. Are you ready to incorporate new approaches and information into your practice?

This program is designed to help you assess the latest available safety and efficacy data related to the care of your patients with HCC. At this lively, interactive, case-based symposium, a panel of renowned experts in HCC treatment will guide you through an exploration of evidence-based rationales for choices at key decision points along the disease continuum. You will get an up-close look at how the faculty leverage key data sets to support decision making on treatment initiation, sequencing, monitoring, and switching, as well as adverse event management.

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists involved in the treatment of patients with HCC. Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment and management of patients with HCC are invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

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

  1. Describe how the natural history of HCC is evolving, and the implications of these changes for patients and the practitioners who manage patients with these tumors
  2. Explain the biology and mechanistic rationale that underlie recent targeted drug development in HCC
  3. Evaluate efficacy and safety outcomes from practice-changing clinical trials conducted in patients with HCC
  4. Apply recent evidence and patient characteristics to inform optimized sequencing decisions in the management of patients with HCC
