Integrating the Evidence for Risk-Based Individualization of Adjuvant Therapy for HER2-Positive Breast Cancer

Integrating the Evidence for Risk-Based Individualization of Adjuvant Therapy for HER2-Positive Breast Cancer


Friday, March 5, 2021

Live, Interactive Virtual Conference!

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EST

Overview

Over the past few years, results from pivotal trials and new regulatory approvals have expanded treatment options for patients with early-stage HER2-positive (HER2+) breast cancer, and treatment paradigms are evolving rapidly. New approaches include dual-targeting of the HER2 receptor, extended HER2-targeted adjuvant therapy, and adjuvant therapy for patients with HER2+ residual disease following preoperative treatment. With all of these options comes the challenge of applying these data in clinical practice, particularly matching treatment strategies to individual patients based on tumor and patient characteristics to optimize outcomes.

Integrating the Evidence for Risk-Based Individualization of Adjuvant Therapy for HER2-Positive Breast Cancer is a continuing medical education-certified virtual webcast that will feature a mix of didactic presentations from prominent experts in the field, combined with case discussions to illustrate the application of the latest data in real-world clinical scenarios. Topics will include assessing HER2 status and estimation of recurrence risk in early-stage disease, current data from adjuvant trials of HER2-targeted treatments, and management of potential adverse events associated with therapies. Additionally, this program includes a “Bring Your Own Case!” session, where you can gain input from experts about any case or questions you may have regarding the management of early-stage HER2+ breast cancer.

Benefits of Attending

  • Hear experts discuss the latest data from clinical trials investigating adjuvant therapies for HER2+ breast cancer in the context of clinical decision-making for patients.
  • Gain insights into strategies for individualizing the treatment of patients with early-stage HER2+ breast cancer.
  • Learn how to manage adverse events associated with HER2-targeted therapies effectively.
  • You can submit your own challenging clinical case for input from the expert faculty.

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward medical oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, and fellows attending the 38th Annual Miami Breast Cancer Conference®. Nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of breast cancer are also invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review expert guidelines regarding HER2 testing and characterization of HER2 status, as well as criteria for risk assessment;
  • Discuss adjuvant treatment strategies to reduce recurrence risk among patients with high-risk HER2+ breast cancer;
  • Integrate evidence from landmark clinical trials in the adjuvant and neoadjuvant settings into individualized treatment plans for patients with early-stage HER2+ breast cancer; and
  • Implement strategies for mitigating and managing adverse events associated with HER2-targeted therapies in order to minimize them and maintain treatment efficacy.

Hot Topics

  • Assessing HER2 status and recurrence risk in early-stage breast cancer;
  • Individualizing adjuvant therapy for early-stage HER2+ breast cancer; and
  • Preventing and managing adverse events associated with HER2-targeted therapies.
