Five renowned breast cancer investigators will serve as the faculty for this symposium, which will be divided into 5 topic modules each focused on a distinct area of breast cancer management. Each module will feature a faculty member-led presentation of emerging research in addition to discussion of actual cases submitted by community-based clinicians to demonstrate the optimal application of the data to contemporary patient care. Clinician attendees will use networked iPads® to complete a premeeting survey related to the cases and topics being presented, and results will be interspersed throughout each module to foster additional discussion among the faculty. Attendees will also be encouraged to use the iPads to submit their own questions and cases to the faculty.

Full agenda will be made available in the fall.

Target Audience:
This activity is intended for medical oncologists, breast cancer surgeons, radiation oncologists and other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

Learning Objectives:
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Consider published data to guide the use of biomarkers and genomic classifiers to assess risk and customize therapy for patients with hormone receptor-positive breast cancer (BC) in the neoadjuvant, adjuvant and extended-adjuvant settings.
  • Appraise available and emerging research evidence to individualize the selection and duration of neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemobiologic regimens for patients with HER2-overexpressing early BC.
  • Implement a long-term clinical plan for the management of metastatic HER2-positive BC, incorporating existing and investigational targeted treatments.
  • Develop an evidence-based algorithm for the treatment of advanced hormone receptor-positive pre- and postmenopausal BC, including the use of endocrine, biologic and chemotherapeutic agents.
  • Consider published research findings and patient preferences in the selection and sequencing of available and investigational therapeutic agents for patients with metastatic ER/PR-negative, HER2-negative BC.
  • Develop an understanding of the mechanisms of action, available data and potential clinical roles of novel targeted and immunotherapeutic approaches in preparation for their potential introduction into future BC clinical practice.
  • Identify ongoing trials of investigational approaches in BC, and obtain consent and refer patients for study participation.

CME Credit Form:
A CME credit form will be given to each participant at the conclusion of the activity.

Accreditation Statement:
Research To Practice is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation Statement:
