This educational activity is specifically designed for oncologists and other healthcare professionals interested in and/or involved in the treatment of breast cancer who 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 optimal HER2-targeted strategies to improve outcomes for patients with HER2+ breast cancer in the early and metastatic settings
  • Assess new and emerging treatment options for patients with metastatic HER2+ breast cancer

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