Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward medical, radiation, and surgical oncologists whose primary practice focus is breast cancer and who intend to reinforce their knowledge base and expand their expertise in breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and management. Participants will be primarily oncologists or fellows in training whose practice requires mastery and a critical understanding of the fundamental principles, pivotal published studies, and emerging information on the pathogenesis and management of breast cancer.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this activity, you should be better prepared to:

  • Review breast cancer biology, staging, and prognostic and/or predictive markers, in order to better individualize therapy and counsel patients regarding conventional and investigational treatment options
  • Integrate biomarkers, molecular assays, and other risk assessment tools into treatment decision-making algorithms to optimize outcomes for patients with breast cancer
  • Discuss current and evolving imaging options for diagnosing, staging, and monitoring breast cancer
  • Incorporate current guidelines and evolving evidence on local treatment options, including new approaches in surgery and radiation therapy, into the management of patients with breast cancer
  • Individualize selection of systemic therapies for patients with early-stage or advanced/metastatic breast cancer by taking into consideration efficacy and safety, as well as patient characteristics and tumor subtype
  • Evaluate emerging clinical data and evolving strategies for the treatment of breast cancer, and apply clinical trial data appropriately in order to optimize the outcome of individual patients
  • Utilize supportive care strategies for preventing and managing treatment-related toxicities in patients receiving treatment for breast cancer
  • Facilitate awareness of clinical trial opportunities based on knowledge of emerging agents and variances in care in the field of breast cancer management
