Enhance your understanding of optimal treatment approaches for HER2+ early breast cancer with this webcast of our symposium held in Madrid. A variety of therapeutic strategies are covered, including short duration regimens, extended adjuvant therapy, dual HER2 blockade, and patient selection for these strategies. Optimizing the risk-benefit profile of different regimens is also 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 are covered.

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 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.
