CME InformationAddressing Disparities in Care and Integrating Antibody-Drug Conjugates as Treatment for Patients with Triple-Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC)This activity is jointly provided by Global Education Group and PlatformQ Health Education, LLC, in collaboration with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF), and Touch, The Black Breast Cancer Alliance (TOUCH).
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTThis activity is supported by an educational grant from Gilead Sciences, Inc.
DATE OF LIVE ACTIVITYFriday, April 22, 2022 from 12:00 – 1:00pm ET
TARGET AUDIENCEThe educational design of this activity addresses the needs of medical oncologists, pathologists, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other HCPs managing patients with TNBC.
STATEMENT OF NEED/PROGRAM OVERVIEWTriple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is the most aggressive form of breast cancer, disproportionally affecting young Black women. In addition, women from racial minorities tend to be diagnosed at a more advanced stage and experience higher rates of TNBC-related mortality. While standard chemotherapy has a high rate of failure in patients with TNBC, first-in-class targeted therapies offer hope of a more effective treatment for patients.
Join a distinguished panel of expert oncologists to explore how disparities in care negatively affect racial minority patients with TNBC, and the necessary steps healthcare professionals can take to address these inequities. Panelists will discuss how health care professionals can formulate plans to screen and diagnose these patients earlier and include genetic counselors on care teams to support patients after diagnosis. Experts will also review the evolving TNBC treatment landscape, the safety and efficacy of the newly approved anti-TROP-2, and additional agents under investigation.
