Activity Overview

Community Practice Connections™: Show Me the Data™: Leveraging the Evidence to Optimize Applications of Biosimilars in Cancer, consists of written content and video interviews of leading oncology experts featuring the use of biosimilars in the oncology setting. The video interviews address decision points and important questions commonly faced in the community practice setting.

Benefits of Participating

  • Understand the regulatory approval process for biosimilars
  • Interpret clinical data of biosimilars in relation to reference biological products
  • Know the most recent biosimilar approvals across cancer types
  • Consider approaches to monitor and identify adverse events related to biosimilars
  • Become more comfortable with integrating biosimilars into clinical practice and addressing patient concerns
