Community Practice Connections™: Navigating Treatment Sequencing in Pancreatic Cancer: Experts Paving the Road Toward Patient-Centric Care

Release Date: August 30, 2019
Expiration Date: August 30, 2020
Media: Internet - based

Activity Overview

Pancreatic adenocarcinoma remains among the most challenging malignancies to treat, but with ongoing clinical research comes the continual potential for improvements in patient care and outcomes. In this online activity, Navigating Treatment Sequencing in Pancreatic Cancer: Experts Paving the Road Towards Patient-Centric Care, the latest cutting-edge data will be presented within a framework of patient cases. The experts in pancreatic cancer management will discuss evidence-based, guideline-recommended therapies and potential drug sequencing; the differential clinical profiles of the available treatments, including adverse event as well as pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic profiles; and the latest clinical trial developments in the evolving treatment landscape for pancreatic cancer. During this activity, interactive questions interspersed throughout case presentations will give you the opportunity to identify and reflect on the optimal management of pancreatic cancer and how to integrate emerging options into the plan of care for your patients.

Benefits of Participating

  • Learn about the most recent clinical advances for patients with pancreatic cancer.
  • Hear expert discussion of emerging data to guide treatment decision making for patients with pancreatic cancer.
  • Contextualize emerging and investigational therapies into the treatment plan for patients with pancreatic cancer.
  • Gain perspective on how guideline-based care and emerging treatment options can be practically applied to real-world settings in which patients with pancreatic cancer are managed.
