Advanced Topics in Multidisciplinary Cancer Care in Early Breast Cancer Online Educational Event.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the USA. Nearly 200,000 women develop invasive breast cancer every year in USA. However, breast cancer mortality has progressively declined in the last two decades. Screening program for early detection, introduction of new systemic agents including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and recently targeted therapy, and the integration of multidisciplinary care have changed the natural history of the disease and impacted in long-term clinical outcome. In addition, in recent years the advances in understanding of the molecular biology of breast cancer, and the incorporation of genetics and tumor genomic signatures are leading to precise medicine. In recent years, we have also seen changes in loco-regional therapy to decrease its complications and shorter duration of therapy. There are new imaging technology for screening and assessment to response to systemic therapy. The introduction of systemic targeted therapy in early and advanced breast cancer has improved short and long-term clinical outcomes including time to treatment progression and overall survival.

In this educational session we will review recent advances and changes in the multidisciplinary evaluation and patient care of early breast cancer. We will also discuss new insights into genomic signatures predictors, which are driving to precision medicine. Specific topics to be covered will include:

  • Updates in breast imaging technology for screening, early detection and assessment to systemic therapy.
  • The new surgical approaches in early breast either prior or after systemic therapy.
  • Advances in breast radiation therapy including accelerating radiation therapy.
  • An update in the systemic treatment of early breast by subtype and utilization of genomic signature to select systemic therapy.
