Monthly Oncology Tumor Boards: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Individualized Patient Care - Bladder Cancer
Advances in the Treatment of Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer
With an increasing number of treatment options for muscle-invasive urothelial bladder cancer available, it is important for physicians to understand these various treatments and identify which option is likely to bring the greatest benefit to a specific patient. Bladder-preserving treatment approaches involving multimodal therapies may be the best option for improving outcomes in select patients. Additionally, with five new systemic therapies approved in the past year, the treatment landscape for metastatic or locally advanced bladder cancer has become increasingly complex requiring education on treatment selection and sequencing.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals who manage patients with cancer.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe which patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer are candidates for bladder-sparing treatment and how multimodal approaches may be used.
- Identify appropriate first-line systemic therapy options for patients with metastatic or locally advanced bladder cancer, and review how patient characteristics can guide therapy choice.
- Discuss the use of subsequent-line therapy for bladder cancer, including recently approved checkpoint inhibitors.
