This educational activity is designed to meet the educational needs of those who are involved and/or interested in the treatment of patients with GI cancers, community oncologists, physicians, physician assistants, physicians-in-training, oncology nurses, and pharmacists.
Upon successful completion of these educational activities, participants should be able to:
- Analyze the mechanism of action (MOA) and safety-efficacy profiles of currently approved and emerging oncological agents including immunotherapies and molecularly targeted agents for the management of GI malignancies
- Integrate clinical trial data and evidence-based therapies for improving clinical outcomes in patients with GI malignancies
- Evaluate the best practices and standards of care based on a multidisciplinary approach for the management of GI cancers
- Implement the rational use of immunotherapies in patients with GI malignancies on a case-by-case basis
- Define patient populations most suitable for enrolling in GI clinical trials for progressive advanced stage GI malignancies
- Implement optimal management strategies for both metastatic and non-metastatic GI malignancies based on personalized factors such as comorbidities, cost, disease stage, and prior therapeutic regimens
- Evaluate the role of blood-based molecular profiling approaches for early diagnosis of metastatic disease and treatment monitoring
- Explore the more clearly defined role of neoadjuvant and adjuvant strategies in GI malignancies
- Explore the emerging role of blood based molecular markers of minimal residual disease, dynamic evaluation of patients on therapy to identify emergence of therapy resistance, and how these biomarkers will define treatment of adjuvant therapy patients and advanced disease
- Define the expanding role of interventional radiology in therapeutics
- Define the emerging role of ablative radiotherapy strategies in GI malignancies
