Providing Patient-Centric Care in Pancreatic Cancer: Therapeutic Sequencing, Chemotherapy, and Novel Agents

Providing Patient-Centric Care in Pancreatic Cancer: Therapeutic Sequencing, Chemotherapy, and Novel Agents


Tuesday, July 14, 2020

Live Webcast! 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM ET

Overview

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma remains among the most challenging malignancies to treat, but recent clinical trials have expanded potential treatment options and increased the potential for improvements in patient care and outcomes. Following many years of negative studies, new drug combinations and new drug formulations for improved delivery are changing the treatment landscape for pancreatic cancer. With data emerging at a rapid pace, treating patients with pancreatic cancer will continue to become more complex as new first-line and later-line treatment options become available. In addition, numerous clinical trials are investigating promising novel agents and treatment approaches for patients with advanced pancreatic cancers. For clinicians, decision making about how best to use current and emerging treatment strategies, and which combinations can offer improved outcomes, remains a challenge.

In this live, interactive, virtual symposium, Providing Patient-Centric Care in Pancreatic Cancer: Therapeutic Sequencing, Chemotherapy, and Novel Agents, the latest cutting-edge data will be presented within a framework of tightly integrated patient cases. Experts in the management of pancreatic cancer will discuss clinical trial evidence informing guideline-based treatment approaches; placing these data sets in the context of evolving treatment standards in the field; the emerging role of maintenance therapy; differential toxicity considerations in multiple lines of care and the mitigation of adverse events; and novel therapeutic agents in clinical trials for advanced pancreatic cancer. The case-based format will encourage sharing of best practices, evolving strategies, and clinical skills. Embedded Q&A sessions with the faculty will allow participants to seek guidance on challenges they face in their own practices.

Benefits of Attending

  • Learn about the most recent clinical advances for patients with pancreatic cancer
  • Hear experts discuss emerging data in the context of treatment decision making for patients with pancreatic cancer
  • Integrate emerging and investigational therapies into treatment planning for patients with pancreatic cancer
  • Incorporate strategies to effectively identify and manage adverse events that may occur with treatments for pancreatic cancer

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, and radiation oncologists who treat pancreatic cancer. Fellows, researchers, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of patients with pancreatic cancer are also invited to attend.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Evaluate recent evidence regarding novel agents and approaches in treatment sequencing in pancreatic cancer.
  • Recommend appropriate therapeutic approaches across multiple lines of therapy for patients with advanced pancreatic cancer based on available evidence, guideline recommendations, and disease- and patient-specific characteristics.
  • Identify patients with pancreatic cancer who are candidates for experimental therapy in ongoing clinical trials.
  • Integrate mitigation and management of treatment-related toxicities into clinical scenarios for patients with pancreatic cancer.
