  • Individualize the selection and sequencing of systemic therapy for patients with ER-positive mBC, considering age, menopausal status, prior treatment course, PIK3CA mutation status, level of HER2 expression, comorbidities, symptomatology and extent and sites of disease.
  • Evaluate published research findings guiding the selection and sequencing of available therapeutic agents for metastatic TNBC.
  • Appraise published efficacy and safety data with PARP inhibitors for patients with mBC harboring BRCA1/2 mutations, and consider the diagnostic and therapeutic implications for nonresearch care.

  • Develop a long-term care plan for metastatic CRC, considering the patient’s biomarker profile, tumor location, prior systemic therapy, symptomatology and personal goals of treatment.
  • Use HER2 status, PD-L1 combined positive score and other clinical and biologic factors to optimize the selection and sequencing of systemic therapy for patients with gastric, gastroesophageal junction and esophageal cancers.
  • Consider age, performance status, degree of liver function and other clinical factors in the selection of first- and later-line therapy for patients with unresectable or metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma.
  • Evaluate available data documenting the efficacy and safety of anti-PD-L1 antibody therapy in combination with chemotherapy as first-line treatment for advanced biliary tract cancers (BTCs), and consider the role of this therapeutic strategy.
  • Recognize the molecular heterogeneity of cholangiocarcinoma and other BTCs, and appreciate the biologic rationale for efforts to exploit documented abnormalities in patients with these diseases.
  • Recall clinical trial data with approved and investigational systemic interventions for metastatic pancreatic adenocarcinoma, and establish an evidence-based approach to selection of therapy for patients.
  • Appraise available and emerging data with investigational agents currently in clinical testing for gastrointestinal cancers, and as applicable, refer eligible patients for clinical trial participation.

GENITOURINARY CANCERS

  • Evaluate the published research database supporting the use of secondary hormonal agents in the management of nonmetastatic castration-sensitive and castration-resistant prostate cancer, and apply this information in the discussion of nonresearch treatment options.
  • Explore available data with cytotoxic and secondary hormonal therapy or combinations of these approaches for metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer to design effective treatment plans for patients.
  • Establish an evidence-based approach to the selection and sequencing of therapeutic options for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC), considering age, comorbidities, prior therapeutic exposure and other factors.
  • Assess available and emerging research supporting the use of PARP inhibitors for mCRPC, and discern how to optimally incorporate these agents into current and future clinical management algorithms.
  • Review available clinical trial evidence with immune checkpoint inhibitors as monotherapy or as maintenance after platinum-based chemotherapy in the treatment of newly diagnosed metastatic urothelial bladder cancer (UBC), and determine the current utility of these agents in clinical practice.
  • Recall pivotal clinical trial findings leading to the FDA approval of novel compounds with unique mechanisms of action for previously treated locally advanced or metastatic UBC, and identify patients for whom these agents would be appropriate.
  • Apply research findings and other clinical and biologic factors in the best-practice selection of first-line therapy for metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC).
  • Develop a rational approach to the selection and sequencing of systemic therapies for patients with mRCC who experience disease progression on first-line treatment.
  • Consider available data supporting the use of anti-PD-1 antibody therapy for nonmetastatic UBC or RCC, and determine how this strategy can be appropriately integrated into patient care.
  • Reflect on available and emerging data with investigational agents and strategies currently in testing for prostate cancer, UBC and RCC, and as applicable, refer eligible patients for clinical trial participation.

CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA AND LYMPHOMAS

  • Individualize the selection and sequencing of systemic therapy for patients with newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory (R/R) chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), considering clinical presentation, age, performance status (PS), biomarker profile and coexisting medical conditions.
  • Understand published research data informing the selection, sequencing or combining of available therapeutic agents in the nonresearch care of patients with previously untreated or R/R follicular lymphoma (FL).
  • Recognize the mechanisms of action and the efficacy and safety of approved and investigational agents for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) to determine the current and potential utility of those agents in clinical practice.
  • Consider patient age, PS and other clinical and biologic factors in the up-front and subsequent treatment of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).
  • Incorporate available and emerging therapeutic strategies into the best-practice management of newly diagnosed and R/R Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • Assess available clinical trial findings informing the use of CD19-directed CAR (chimeric antigen receptor) T-cell therapy for R/R DLBCL, MCL or FL, and counsel appropriately selected patients regarding the potential benefits of this strategy.
  • Recall new data with agents and strategies currently under investigation for CLL and various lymphoma subtypes, and discuss ongoing trial opportunities with eligible patients.

GYNECOLOGIC CANCERS

  • Assess available clinical trial data with and approved indications for FDA-endorsed PARP inhibitors for newly diagnosed and recurrent ovarian cancer (OC) to optimally incorporate these agents into patient care.
  • Appreciate the biologic rationale for and published trial data with the combination of PARP inhibitors with other systemic therapies, and consider the implications for current and future OC management and research.
  • Recognize the rationale for targeting folate receptor alpha in OC, and determine optimal testing methods and the current role of novel approaches to therapeutically exploit this newly relevant biomarker.
  • Review the benefits observed with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies for advanced microsatellite instability-high or mismatch repair-deficient endometrial cancer (EC), and appropriately integrate these agents into patient care.
