Meeting Overview

Enhance your understanding of optimal treatment approaches for HER2+ early breast cancer at this interactive satellite symposium. A variety of therapeutic strategies will be discussed, including short duration regimens, extended adjuvant therapy, dual HER2 blockade, and patient selection for these strategies. Optimizing the risk-benefit profile of different regimens will also be addressed, with information on prevention and management of adverse events. Finally, emerging agents and potential future opportunities provided by new HER2-targeted strategies that address areas of continuing unmet clinical need will be covered. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the expert faculty throughout the symposium.

This educational activity is specifically designed for oncologists and other healthcare professionals interested in and/or involved in the treatment of breast cancer that wish to understand some of the latest developments in treatments for patients with HER2+ breast cancer.

After successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Evaluate the results of recent clinical trials in HER2+ early breast cancer that explore the evolution of adjuvant treatment strategies
  • Select the optimum HER2-targeted strategy and duration of treatment to improve long-term disease endpoints in patients with HER2+ early breast cancer
  • Identify supportive care interventions to minimize adverse events with HER2-targeted therapy
  • Understand the limitations of health care funding for HER2+ early breast cancer and the need for a risk-adapted strategy

This educational activity is supported by a grant from Puma Biotechnology.
