Topics to Be Discussed

  • Metastatic Melanoma
  • Nonmetastatic Melanoma and Other Skin Cancers

Target Audience
This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows, radiation oncologists and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma and Merkel cell carcinoma.

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

  • Identify factors affecting the risk of recurrence for patients with localized melanoma, and evaluate the role of approved targeted and immunotherapeutic agents as adjuvant therapy.
  • Use available clinical trial evidence to safely and effectively incorporate immunotherapeutic, targeted or combination approaches into therapy for patients with newly diagnosed metastatic melanoma.
  • Consider age, performance status and other biological and disease-related factors in the selection of therapy — including potential clinical trial participation — for patients with metastatic melanoma who experience disease progression on front-line immune checkpoint inhibitor-based treatment.
  • Use available clinical trial evidence to safely and effectively integrate immunotherapeutic approaches into therapy for patients with advanced cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC).
  • Formulate a long-term clinical plan for the management of advanced basal cell carcinoma (BCC), incorporating targeted and immunotherapeutic strategies.
  • Assess the rationale for and clinical trial data with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies for advanced Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC), and optimally employ available agents in current patient care.
  • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel agents and strategies for melanoma, cSCC, BCC and MCC, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
