This program explores treatment options for patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). To make informed decisions when treating patients with HER2-positive status, clinicians must understand using HER2 as a testing target and know the latest treatment options available. This activity raises clinician awareness of the impact of testing for HER2 status in patients with mCRC and of identifying patients with CRC who would benefit from HER2-directed therapies.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional team, including community oncologists, oncology nurses, pathologists, gastroenterologists, as well as other clinicians involved in the management of patients with colorectal cancer.
After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:
- Apply appropriate diagnostic methods to identify patients with mCRC who are candidates for HER2-directed therapy
- Differentiate between HER2-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitors based on downstream effects of target specificity
- Evaluate efficacy and safety of current treatment options to inform treatment strategies for patients with HER2-positive mCRC
- Utilize understanding of target profiles, efficacy, and safety considerations to select optimal HER2-targeted TKI combination regimens for a patient with HER2-positive mCRC
