This virtually live educational activity focuses on the care of patients with advanced/metastatic gastric cancer and gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma. The education aims to help healthcare professionals improve their ability to evaluate which patient populations may benefit from anti-angiogenic therapy as a second-line treatment for advanced or metastatic gastric and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancers and select appropriate second- and subsequent-line therapy based on clinical practice guidelines and the latest clinical trial findings.
This activity is designed to educate community-based oncologists, oncology nurses, and other healthcare providers involved in the care of patients with advanced/metastatic gastric cancer and gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma.
Upon the completion of this program, attendees should be able to:
- Evaluate which patient populations may benefit from anti-angiogenic therapy as a second-line treatment for advanced or metastatic gastric and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancers
- Select appropriate second- and subsequent-line therapy for the management of gastric/GEJ cancers
- Assess clinical trials findings in patients who could benefit from anti-angiogenic treatment for advanced or metastatic gastric and gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancers
- Apply clinical practice guidelines for second treatment in patients with advanced and metastatic gastrointestinal cancers to maximize patient outcomes through proper sequencing of therapy
