Live CME-accredited webinar

Topics to Be Discussed

  • MODULE 1: Management of Metastatic Clear Cell Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC)
  • MODULE 2: Treatment Approaches for Nonmetastatic RCC; Optimal Care of Patients with Non-Clear Cell RCC

Target Audience
This activity is intended for medical and radiation oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows, urologists and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of renal cell carcinoma.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to

  • Evaluate recently presented data with adjuvant anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibody therapy for patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC) at high risk for recurrence after nephrectomy, and consider the current role of this treatment strategy.
  • Effectively apply evidence-based research and other clinical and biological factors in the best-practice selection of first-line therapy for metastatic RCC (mRCC).
  • Appraise available clinical trial data evaluating combinations of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies and multikinase inhibitors for previously untreated mRCC, and counsel patients about the risks and benefits of these novel regimens.
  • Review the biological rationale underlying the investigation of combined anti‑PD-1/ anti‑CTLA‑4/multikinase inhibitor therapy as first-line treatment for mRCC, and appreciate available research documenting the effectiveness of this approach.
  • Develop a rational approach to the sequencing of systemic therapies for advanced RCC that progresses on first-line treatment, incorporating multikinase inhibitors, mTOR inhibitors, immunotherapeutic agents and other therapeutic approaches.
  • Recognize side effects and toxicities commonly associated with approved and investigational therapeutic approaches, and use this information to develop supportive care plans for patients with RCC undergoing treatment with these agents and regimens.
  • Recall available and emerging data with other novel and investigational agents and strategies currently in testing for RCC, and where applicable, refer eligible patients for clinical trial participation.

CME Credit Form
A CME credit form link will be emailed to each participant within 5 business days of the activity.
