This program is intended for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician associates/physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals who care for patients with malignant solid tumors.
The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, confidence, and competence of oncologists, pathologists, molecular pathologists, oncology physician associates/physician assistants, oncology nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals to optimally integrate histology-agnostic therapies into treatment of eligible patients with cancer.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
Order appropriate assays or molecular tests to detect BRAF V600E, microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H)/deficient mismatch repair (dMMR), tumor mutation burden–high (TMB-H), and oncogenic gene fusions in patients with malignant solid tumors
Appraise emerging clinical efficacy and safety data supporting the use of multitumor and histology-agnostic therapies in solid tumors
Formulate strategies for integrating histology-agnostic agents into the management of eligible patients with cancer based on biomarker assessment, current evidence as well as expert and guideline recommendations
Develop strategies for managing immune-related adverse events associated with histology-agnostic treatment with immune checkpoint inhibitors
Identify and refer eligible patients with appropriate biomarkers for enrollment in ongoing clinical trials
