Target Audience

This program is intended for gastrointestinal oncologists involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with biliary tract cancer that are candidates for targeted systemic therapy.

Program Learning Goal

The goal of this activity is to improve learners’ knowledge, confidence, and competence of the molecular testing for and therapeutic management of biliary tract cancer in patients that are candidates for targeted systemic therapy.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Provide a detailed description of the known genomic alterations in BTC, the differences in their anatomical distribution and frequency, and their impact on disease progression

  • Select the appropriate molecular testing for individual patients with BTC and suspected genomic alterations, and explain the significance of the testing results to patients and their caregivers

  • Choose an appropriate targeted therapy based on the results of molecular testing for genomic alterations, and consider enrolling patients in clinical trials for alterations without an approved or off-label treatment option
