Updates on Advanced Breast Cancer: Local Management and Other New Perspectives
The goal is for physicians to develop the tools to diagnose, identify therapeutic approaches specifically for treatment of breast cancer, enhance approaches to assist in detecting the disease, evaluate the effectiveness of treatment for breast cancer patients, and appropriately refer patients to clinical trials.
After attending the conference, participants should be able to
- Conduct a timely recognition and diagnosis of inflammatory and triple-negative breast cancer, and provide appropriate delivery of therapy that involves multidisciplinary care (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes);
- Apply the updated management of locally advanced, recurrent breast cancer (Knowledge, Competence, Performance);
- Apply the updated personalized care for metastatic breast cancers, and refer patients to an appropriate clinical trial (Knowledge, Competence, Performance, Patient Outcomes);
- Case Studies
- Audience Response System
- Interactive Groups/Breakouts
A course evaluation tool will provide participants with the opportunity to comment on the value of the program content to their practice decisions, performance improvement activities, or possible impact on patient health status. Participants will also have the opportunity to comment on any perceived commercial bias in the presentations as well as to identify future educational topics.
