Monthly Oncology Tumor Boards: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Individualized Patient Care - Colon Cancer
Advances in the Treatment of Metastatic Colon Cancer
The addition of new therapies based on the results of biomarker testing has substantially expanded treatment options for metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) in recent years, raising new questions about how to select the most appropriate therapy for a specific patient based on their biomarker testing results and how to optimally sequence these therapies. Education is needed to help guide clinicians on appropriate biomarker testing for patients with mCRC and how the results of these tests can aid in treatment decision-making in this rapidly evolving landscape. Optimal treatment strategies can maximize benefits while minimizing harms, giving patients with mCRC the best quality and quantity of life possible.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians/oncologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who manage patients with cancer.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe considerations for biomarker testing in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), including interpretation of results and their impact on treatment selection.
- Compare and contrast recent and emerging targeted therapy options for mCRC and how these new therapies may be incorporated into a treatment plan.
- Explain results of recent clinical trials of systemic therapies for patients with mCRC.
