Medical Crossfire®: Global Perspectives on Recent Data in Hormone Receptor-Positive Breast Cancer: Individualizing and Optimizing Use of CDK4/6 Inhibitors

Release Date: January 15, 2021
Expiration Date: January 15, 2022

Activity Overview

This online, on-demand virtual symposium brings together 5 key thought leaders to discuss the role of CDK4/6 inhibitors in the management of patients with hormone receptor-positive (HR+) breast cancer. In this educational program, experts cover evolving evidence in the metastatic setting as well as strategies for individualizing and optimizing treatment. In addition, they review emerging data in the setting of early-stage breast cancer and discuss how recent results will impact the management of patients with high-risk disease. This lively discussion will help place new developments into clinical context to help optimize care for patients with HR+ breast cancer.

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

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward medical oncologists who treat patients with breast cancer. Other physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of breast cancer are also invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Review recent results from pivotal clinical trials evaluating CDK4/6 inhibitors for the treatment of patients with HR+ breast cancer and the impact of these data on treatment decision-making
  • Utilize tumor and patient characteristics when incorporating CDK4/6 inhibitors in order to individualize treatment strategies and optimize outcomes for patients with HR+ metastatic breast cancer (MBC)
  • Integrate predictive and prognostic assays to assess risk of recurrence in patients with early-stage HR+ breast cancer and to identify patients eligible for clinical trials evaluating novel combinations of endocrine therapies and targeted agents
  • Assess strategies to optimize treatment protocols for patients with HR+ MBC in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, and ensure adherence to therapy in patients receiving oral anticancer medications
