Bladder Cancer Playbook for Urologists: Practical Application of Current and Emerging Strategies to Optimize Patient Outcomes

Release Date: June 17, 2020
Expiration Date: June 17, 2021

Activity Overview

The bladder cancer treatment landscape is broadening with advances in immuno-oncology and targeted therapy strategies, while new clinical data continue to impact all stages of bladder cancer as more is learned about single-agent and combination immunotherapy approaches. In addition, novel agents tailored to treat bladder cancer with specific genomic alterations are being explored, as well as therapeutic options for disease that is refractory to immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy.

This enduring CME activity from a live webcast on June 4, 2020, features a panel of experts who will address the application of immune-based and targeted-agent approaches through presentations and discussions of the most recent clinical data for the treatment of early and advanced bladder cancer. Practical patient case scenarios will highlight treatment decisions in various bladder cancer settings and will address the management of adverse events associated with immunotherapy and targeted agents, the importance of multidisciplinary care, and future directions in the field of bladder cancer.

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward urologists, oncologists, and researchers interested in the treatment of bladder cancers. Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other health care professionals involved in the treatment and management of patients with bladder cancers are invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this educational activity, you should be better prepared to:

  • Identify the biologic rationale for using immune-based and targeted therapy approaches to treat bladder cancer
  • Evaluate data from pivotal clinical trials of immunotherapies, signaling inhibitors, and other emerging agents for bladder cancer
  • Discuss novel agents and combinatorial approaches under investigation for the treatment of bladder cancer across multiple settings, including advanced/metastatic, muscle-invasive, and non–muscle-invasive disease
  • Consider practice-changing evidence from clinical trials of immunotherapies, cytotoxic agents, and targeted therapies during multidisciplinary, team-based care planning for patients with bladder cancer
  • Outline frequent and less common toxicities associated with newer agents used in the treatment of bladder cancer, including immunotherapies and targeted agents, and best practices for their mitigation and management
