Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Oncology Volume 04, Issue 12: Update on Breast Cancer.
The goals of this program are to review the most recent advances in the treatment of breast cancer (BC) and improve outcomes of BC through the use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC). After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Identify which patients might benefit from longer adjuvant therapy with tamoxifen.
2. Choose appropriate therapies for patients with ERBB2-positive BC based on recent clinical trial data.
3. Consider use of chemotherapy (CTX) for local recurrence in patients with triple-negative BC.
4. Select appropriate candidates for conversion from mastectomy to breast-conserving therapy using NAC.
5. Determine the optimal timing of sentinel lymph node biopsy in patients undergoing NAC.
The original programs were presented by Sara A. Hurvitz, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Medicine; Director, Breast Cancer Program; Co-Director, Santa Monica-UCLA Outpatient Hematology/Oncology Practice, and; Medical Director, Clinical Research Unit, Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of California, Los Angeles, David Geffen School of Medicine, and Alice P.
