Kurt A. Schalper, MD, PhD - Progress and Practicalities in Immunotherapy Biomarker Testing and Pathologic Response Assessment in Solid Tumors: What’s New and What You Need to Know and Do
Go online to PeerView.com/KCV860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Cancer immunotherapy in the form of anti–PD-1, anti–PD-L1, and anti–CTLA-4 monoclonal antibodies is swiftly expanding from metastatic to early-stage, curative-intent settings in an increasing number of solid tumors. Furthermore, it’s on the cusp of further explosive growth as other novel agents, including inhibitors of new checkpoints such as LAG-3 and TIGIT, are starting to emerge. Pathologists and oncologists play a crucial role in identifying patients who would benefit the most from the broadening arsenal of immunotherapies and assessing response to these therapies. While there are substantial gaps in biomarker testing, pathologic response assessment, and the use of immunotherapies in current practice, things will only become more complicated. This PeerView Live educational activity, based on a recent symposium, will help you refine your current best practices and prepare you for what’s to come next. Top experts convene to provide a visual exploration of the most important recent advances in immuno-oncology, conduct demonstrations of representative and challenging real-world cases, and walk you through practical exercises on operationalizing biomarker testing and pathologic response assessment in different laboratory and clinical settings. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Discuss the rationale, recommendations, and practical considerations related to cancer immunotherapy biomarker testing and pathologic response assessment in different tumors and treatment settings, Use appropriate immunotherapy biomarker testing and pathologic response assessment to cancer immunotherapies according to the latest evidence, requirements, and best practice recommendations across different tumors and treatment settings, Implement effective strategies for multidisciplinary communication, collaboration, and coordination among pathologists, oncologists, and other care team professionals regarding selection and interpretation of immunotherapy biomarker tests and pathologic response assessment to guide clinical decision-making regarding cancer immunotherapies across different tumors and treatment settings.
John J. Russell, MD - Cancer Control Through Early Blood-Based Detection: Perspectives on Integrating Innovative Multicancer Early Detection Tests in the Primary Care Setting
Go online to PeerView.com/MBR860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Blood-based cancer screening has the potential to revolutionize conventional approaches to early cancer detection—are you current on the recent scientific developments with multicancer early detection tests? Find out more in this activity, which features a multidisciplinary panel’s take on the potential of blood-based cancer screening, the implications of emerging MCED blood tests for primary care practice, and collaborative, case-based strategies for incorporating these innovations into routine patient care. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Assess the scientific foundations and clinical utility of novel multicancer early detection (MCED) tests, including available clinical evidence on sensitivity, specificity, and tumor localization accuracy, Plan strategies to appropriately integrate MCED tests into routine primary care practice based on a comprehensive understanding of how, in whom, and when they should be used, Adapt primary care workflows to improve the follow-up of abnormal cancer screening results and subspecialty referrals for further diagnostic assessment, Implement processes to improve patient uptake of established and novel cancer screening services, including through patient education and shared decision-making.
Tanios Bekaii-Saab, MD - Dialing in the Dose: Reviewing Recent Evidence and Team-Based Strategies to Personalize and Optimize Patient Care in Metastatic Colorectal Cancer
Go online to PeerView.com/GVA860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Successfully and safely delivering optimized care in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) can be a challenge, particularly during later lines of therapy and when managing patients exposed to many prior therapies. Current evidence shows that these challenges can be overcome—including through the optimized delivery of novel agents, enhanced dosing strategies, and AE mitigation approaches. To learn more, join CRC expert, Dr. Tanios Bekaii-Saab, as he navigates through different team-based treatment strategies designed to improve the delivery of later-line care in patients with mCRC. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Summarize recent evidence regarding dosage optimization of third-line treatments for metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), Implement alternative dose strategies based on the latest data to maximize third-line therapeutic efficacy in mCRC, Integrate interprofessional team-based approaches to improve patient adherence and education on prevention and management strategies for adverse events associated with third-line TKI-based therapies for mCRC.
Anthony R. Mato, MD, MSCE - Solving the Challenge of Tumor Lysis Syndrome: Expert Insight and Guidance on a Challenging Oncologic Emergency
Go online to PeerView.com/YSX860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) is a serious and potentially fatal oncologic emergency that, paradoxically, is partially linked to the use of highly effective anticancer treatment. How can the management team rise to the challenge of TLS? In this activity, Anthony R. Mato, MD, MSCE, and Kristen Battiato, MSN, RN, AGNP-C, will provide an answer. Join them as they explore team-based management of TLS and provide guidance on developing TLS management plans. Throughout this program, the experts will use real-world case scenarios to demonstrate how professionals can work together to identify risk factors for TLS, recognize its laboratory and clinical symptoms, and prevent its occurrence. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Determine the presence of tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) and risk status based on patient-, disease-, and treatment-related features in patients with cancer, Develop risk-based prophylactic protocols for TLS that include adequate hydration, patient assessment, and antihyperuricemic medications based on current efficacy evidence, Integrate individualized antihyperuricemic therapy into TLS management plans for patients with cancer, including administration of appropriate treatment, appropriate dosing of antihyperuricemics, and patient counseling measures.
