This program focuses on frontline therapies for patients with metastatic melanoma. It discusses strategies for sequencing immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) and patient characteristics that guide choice of treatment. The program includes topics such as the scientific rationale driving research, efficacy and safety data from recent pivotal clinical trials, and clinical management dilemmas. This program provides busy clinicians with an opportunity to listen to experts discuss critical takeaways from research studies and implications for current practice, such as treatment selection and effective management of treatment-related adverse events (AEs). Learners will be able to better understand optimal treatment sequencing while becoming more aware of clinical challenges associated with immunotherapy, such as toxicity management as well as difficult patient scenarios.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional team including medical oncologists, oncology nurses, and oncology pharmacists,as well as other clinicians involved in the management of patients with metastatic melanoma.
After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:
- Review the risks and benefits of dual immune checkpoint inhibition and identify patient and disease characteristics that may impact the choice of therapy
- Use data to determine optimal treatment sequencing for BRAF-mutated, metastatic melanoma
- Review clinical challenges surrounding the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors in metastatic melanoma
