SERIES MODERATOR
Neil Love, MD
Research To Practice

Agenda

Each 1-hour session will be divided into topic modules focused on current management, emerging research and novel agents and strategies under active investigation for gastrointestinal cancers. Each event will employ an identical format that will include the following elements:

  • Moderator Dr Neil Love and a featured participating clinical investigator
  • Discussion of participating faculty treatment recommendations
  • Review of available clinical research findings
  • Community oncologist video case presentations
  • Interactive audience polling and extensive Q&A

    MODULE 1: Selection and Sequencing of Therapy for Patients with Advanced Gastric or Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer

    MODULE 2: Evidence-Based Management of Advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    MODULE 3: Optimizing Personalized Treatment for Metastatic Colorectal Cancer

Target Audience
This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers.

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate recently presented clinical research findings applicable to the optimal selection and sequencing of systemic therapy for patients with advanced colorectal cancer (CRC), gastric/gastroesophageal cancer (GC) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and consider how these data sets affect current clinical decision-making.
  • Develop a long-term care plan for patients diagnosed with metastatic CRC, considering biomarker profile (eg, BRAF, microsatellite instability status), tumor location, prior systemic therapy, symptomatology, performance status and personal goals of treatment.
  • Assess biomarker test results (eg, HER2, PD-L1 status), clinical factors and patient preferences to optimize the selection and sequence of systemic therapy for locally advanced or metastatic GC.
  • Use patient age, performance status, degree of liver function and other clinical factors to individualize therapeutic recommendations for newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory unresectable or metastatic HCC.
  • Appreciate the clinical prevalence and significance of elevated AFP (alpha-fetoprotein) expression in patients with advanced HCC, evaluate available data documenting the benefit of specific management approaches for patients with high AFP levels and personalize therapeutic recommendations.
  • Evaluate the rationale for and appropriateness of specific adaptations to cancer management and follow-up practices for patients with CRC, GC and HCC to account for the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, and implement or suggest relevant changes within your practice.
  • Appraise available and emerging data with investigational agents and strategies currently in clinical testing for CRC, GC and HCC, and where applicable, refer eligible patients for clinical trial participation.
