Developments in the Management of Metastatic HER2-Positive Breast Cancer and Delivery of Patient-Centered Oncology Care
January 25, 2022
8:00 PM ET
Live, Interactive Webcast!
Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) expression is a marker of a more aggressive disease and presents in about 25% of breast cancers. The treatment of HER2-positive breast cancer has evolved with increasing availability of HER2-targeted therapies. The appropriate sequencing of therapies for patients with HER2-positive breast cancer can be complex, and pharmacists are integral to ensuring care coordination and providing medication expertise to the multidisciplinary care team. In this program, expert faculty will review recent clinical trial data and guideline recommendations detailing the use of HER2-targeted therapy for first-line treatment. Patient adherence to therapy remains a priority compounded by cost of treatment and concerns of adverse effects of therapy. To ensure optimal patient outcomes, pharmacists must be prepared to make early interventions and assist the oncology care team with identification and management of potential treatment-related adverse effects of HER2-targeted therapies. Oncology pharmacists are positioned to use information gained through this activity to provide education to patients and members of the health care team, monitor drug toxicities, and recommend dose adjustments as appropriate.
