Overview

Oncology Best Practice™ is a nationwide series of live, regional activities held in locations across the US deemed to have the highest educational need. This educational series will focus on the incorporation of recent practice-changing evidence on oral chemotherapeutic formulations by multidisciplinary teams in the context of managing real-world clinical scenarios. Chemotherapy has been the foundation of breast cancer care for decades, with great impact on survival outcomes with combination chemotherapy, dose-dense chemotherapy, and metronomic chemotherapy regimens. These benefits come at a price, however, with adverse events, such as infusion-related reactions, peripheral neuropathy, and alopecia, that are associated with intravenous administration of these drugs. Even with all the advances in other classes of drugs for treating breast cancer, chemotherapy is still the mainstay. The time has come for the development of innovative platforms for convenient oral chemotherapy delivery that allow for the continued use of these agents with improved safety profile and better quality of life for patients. The activity will use a variety of teaching modalities, including didactic presentation of new data, clinical scenarios exploring how oral chemotherapy may improve patient care and quality of life, strategies for navigating patient education and adherence, and peer-to-peer and peer-to-expert interactions. We look forward to you joining us to learn how to bring the latest innovative cancer treatment strategies to your patients.

Benefits of Attending

  • Review the clinical data evaluating emerging oral chemotherapies compared with standard IV chemotherapies that may be available for your patients with breast cancer in the near future
  • Learn how the experts and your peers are managing challenging cases for their patients eligible for oral chemotherapy regimens
  • Ask the experts about best practices for mitigating adverse events related to oral chemotherapies
