Genetic Profiling in Early-Stage Breast Cancer and Beyond
This curriculum is designed to improve the management of early-stage breast cancer. The focus is to 1) improve physician decision-making when incorporating treatment algorithms into their clinical practice; 2) evaluate the “value propositions” for genomic/biomarker assays when making treatment decisions; and 3) identify improved treatment options for women with triple negative disease to offer them better outcomes for this difficult to treat subset of early-stage breast cancer.

Overall Educational Purpose
This curriculum is designed to improve the management of early-stage breast cancer. The multi-platform design immerses learners in didactic education and case-based vignettes to help raise physician competence and improve patient outcomes.
Three areas of critical practice improvement include:
The recent St. Gallen treatment decision recommendations for systemic adjuvant therapy of early-stage breast cancer has left oncologists and supporting healthcare professionals with insufficient means to clearly make evidence-based comparisons with existing treatment algorithms within their own clinical practice.
Lack of clarity of the value of genomic/biomarker assays in early-stage breast cancer has left oncologists and supporting healthcare professionals inadequately prepared to assess their “value propositions” when considering treatment decisions for women with early-stage breast cancer.
Estimates are that 10% to 17% of women developing breast cancer will have triple negative disease that is not yet fully served by current attempts to link treatment with tumor profile/gene micro-arrays. Oncologists and supporting healthcare professionals, nationally and at the community level, need forums to engage in critical discussions to expand treatment options for these patients.
Prova Education brings you active learning that includes strategies to apply what you have learned in your clinical practice.
This course is designed to meet the Continuing Medical Education needs of oncologists.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint sponsorship of Prova Education and The University of Michigan. The University of Michigan is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
