This program will review the use of CDK 4/6 inhibitors in the treatment of HR+/HER2-negative breast cancer and the management of treatment-related adverse events.
This CME initiative is designed to meet the educational needs of medical oncologists, advanced practice clinicians, oncology nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of patients with hormone receptor-positive, HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer.
After completing the CME activity, learners should be better able to:
- Identify the patient who will benefit from CDK 4/6 inhibitor therapy with consideration of patient and disease characteristics and appropriately time its use in the course of the disease
- Recognize commonly associated toxicities of CDK4/6 inhibition, and apply strategies for both the monitoring and management of adverse events associated with their use in patients with metastatic breast cancer
- Utilize methodologies to activate all members of the healthcare team, encourage collaboration, and incorporate shared-decision-making and survivorship tools to assist in optimizing patient outcomes and management of adverse events
