This educational activity is specifically designed to educate medical oncologists, breast oncologists, and other healthcare providers who treat patients with breast cancer.

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

  • Describe the evolution of HER2+ breast cancer in the current era of HER2-targeted treatments and the remaining areas of unmet medical need
  • Evaluate the results of recent clinical trials in HER2+ early breast cancer that explore the evolution of adjuvant treatment strategies and the need for a risk-adapted strategy
  • Assess recent developments in HER2-targeted treatment and the opportunities provided by novel agents for HER2+ metastatic breast cancer
  • Identify supportive care interventions to minimize adverse events with HER2-targeted therapy

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