Overview

The management of melanoma has shifted in recent years with improved understanding of signaling pathways and resistance mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of metastatic melanoma, which have led to advances in the development of targeted therapies. These new approaches have allowed physicians the ability to target previously unreachable treatment goals to improve patient outcomes. Novel treatment strategies for advanced melanoma raise challenging questions, and uncertainty regarding the best strategies for integrating new treatments into current treatment paradigms often arise, in addition to concerns for the proactive management of treatment-related side effects. The ability to evaluate efficacy of new therapies, manage treatment-associated adverse events, and implement biomarkers for selecting therapy is critical for making informed decisions and optimizing patient care.

The Melanoma Tumor Board: Matching Treatment to Patient will bring together renowned international experts in melanoma treatment and clinical research to assess the clinical impact of recent and emerging trial data in melanoma. This activity will involve a series of case presentations integrating clinical trial data and will highlight melanoma treatment decisions related to current front-line and beyond therapies, treatment-related adverse events, and the impact of recent developments in the care of melanoma. Audience participation will be integrated throughout the program to encourage interaction with faculty and engagement with content.

Benefits of Attending

  • Outline advances in metastatic and stage III melanoma
  • Evaluate clinical data on efficacy and safety of novel treatment approaches
