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

Release Date: July 29, 2020
Expiration Date: July 29, 2021

Activity Overview

This online, on-demand virtual symposium brings together a renowned group of experts in the management of pancreatic adenocarcinoma who discuss current and emergent treatment strategies for this disease, with the goal of providing patient centered care. Experts in the management of pancreatic cancer 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 encourages sharing of best practices, evolving strategies, and clinical skills.

This educational activity is an archive of the live virtual symposium held on July 14, 2020.
