Virtual Coffee Talk: Let’s Talk About Best Practices for Neutropenia Management Today, with an Eye Toward Bridging Clinical Gaps Tomorrow!

Virtual Coffee Talk: Let’s Talk About Best Practices for Neutropenia Management Today, with an Eye Toward Bridging Clinical Gaps Tomorrow!

Saturday, March 6, 2021

Live, Interactive Webcast

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM EST


Chemotherapy-induced neutropenia (CIN) is a common adverse event associated with breast cancer treatment. CIN and its associated complications, including febrile neutropenia, can have serious, life-threatening effects on patients. In addition to an increased risk of infection and worsening of disease, CIN can negatively impact cancer therapy outcomes because chemotherapy dose reductions and delays are common management strategies.

This live satellite symposium will help clinicians acquire knowledge to handle CIN-associated challenges from experts in the field who will discuss guideline recommendations, prophylactic strategies, biosimilars, and novel and emerging agents to treat real-life patients with breast cancer at risk for febrile neutropenia.

Benefits of Attending

  • Learn the latest about new and emerging treatment options for patients with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
  • Hear expert perspectives on the clinical application of recent data.
  • Gain insight into how experts treat patients with breast cancer who develop neutropenia through real-life case studies.
  • Submit questions and cases for discussion with experts in the field.

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward medical oncologists who treat patients with breast cancer. Nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of breast cancer will be invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should have improved their ability to:

  • Determine patient-, disease-, and treatment-specific characteristics used to stratify risk level for neutropenia and febrile neutropenia development during breast cancer treatment;
  • Assess the impact of CIN and adverse events associated with its management on patient outcomes and quality of life along the breast cancer care continuum;
  • Evaluate recently reported evidence on emerging single-agent and combination approaches for neutropenia management among patients with cancer; and
  • Integrate evolving CIN prevention and management strategies into real-world scenarios

Hot Topics

  • How does neutropenia affect outcomes in breast cancer patients?
  • Managing neutropenia in patients with cancer during the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic
