Moving the Treatment of Advanced Gastroesophageal Cancers Forward: How Can We Maximize the Benefits of Novel Immunotherapy Approaches?

Activity Description and Educational Objectives

Recently approved immunotherapy options have revolutionized the treatment of patients with advanced gastroesophageal cancers (eg, gastric adenocarcinoma, gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma, esophageal adenocarcinoma, esophageal squamous cell carcinoma [ESCC]), which have traditionally been associated with poor outcomes due to late detection, high heterogeneity, and limited response to chemotherapy and targeted treatments. With clinical trials validating the efficacy of immune checkpoint inhibition across multiple lines of therapy and regardless of PD-L1 expression, nivolumab and pembrolizumab have become standards of care in the frontline setting as part of various combinations, and nivolumab monotherapy has been approved in patients with ESCC after previous chemotherapy. Recently, nivolumab plus ipilimumab became the first chemotherapy-free combination to gain approval for frontline use in patients with ESCC. In light of these treatment advances, do you know how to select among the different immunotherapy options and determine the best therapeutic approach for each of your patients with advanced gastroesophageal cancers? Hear from the experts on which biomarkers and other factors are/are not helpful in guiding clinical decisions, and how you can bring your patients the latest cutting-edge therapies backed by robust evidence. Also, learn from illustrative cases discussed by the faculty on how to apply the current data to practice.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Identify patients with advanced gastroesophageal cancers (ie, gastric, GEJ, or esophageal cancer) who may benefit from recently approved immunotherapy options based on efficacy and safety evidence
  • Incorporate recently approved immunotherapy options into treatment plans for eligible patients with advanced gastroesophageal cancers across multiple lines of therapy
  • Apply a team approach to optimize the use of immunotherapy, including strategies to promptly recognize and manage immune-related adverse event, in patients with advanced gastroesophageal cancers

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other clinicians involved in the management of patients with advanced gastroesophageal cancer.

The Power of Interprofessional Teams in SSc-ILD: From Diagnosis Through Management

Media: Enduring Material
Activity Release Date: June 21, 2022
Activity Expiration Date: June 20, 2023
Time to Complete Activity: 30 minutes

Activity Description

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) or scleroderma is a rare, often fatal connective tissue disease that affects multiple organ systems. Pulmonary involvement, particularly interstitial lung disease (ILD), occurs in the majority of patients with SSc and is now the number one cause of death in SSc. Early diagnosis is key and relies on evaluation of signs and symptoms, pulmonary function tests, and high-resolution computed tomography. Until recently, therapy for SSc-ILD has been limited to supportive care and immunosuppressants. Fortunately, antifibrotic agents approved for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) have either received approval, or are in development, for SSc-ILD. Because SSc-ILD affects multiple organ systems and has many comorbidities, interprofessional management is essential from diagnosis throughout the disease course.

In this expert-led activity, you will be able to self-assess your baseline levels of understanding, skill, and confidence, resulting in a tailored educational experience focused on the areas where you need it most.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of pulmonologists, rheumatologists, radiologists, pathologists, nurse practitioners, and other clinicians involved in the care of patients with systemic sclerosis-related interstitial lung disease.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Diagnose SSc-ILD promptly and conduct comprehensive interprofessional assessments using clinical signs and symptoms, and guideline-directed testing
  • Use recent trial data and guidelines to guide the use of existing and emerging agents to treat SSc-ILD in an interprofessional care team
  • Leverage the interprofessional care team to manage the risk factors and comorbidities of SSc-ILD

The Power of Interprofessional Teams in SSc-ILD: From Diagnosis Through Management

Media: Enduring Material
Activity Release Date: June 21, 2022
Activity Expiration Date: June 20, 2023
Time to Complete Activity: 30 minutes

Activity Description

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) or scleroderma is a rare, often fatal connective tissue disease that affects multiple organ systems. Pulmonary involvement, particularly interstitial lung disease (ILD), occurs in the majority of patients with SSc and is now the number one cause of death in SSc. Early diagnosis is key and relies on evaluation of signs and symptoms, pulmonary function tests, and high-resolution computed tomography. Until recently, therapy for SSc-ILD has been limited to supportive care and immunosuppressants. Fortunately, antifibrotic agents approved for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) have either received approval, or are in development, for SSc-ILD. Because SSc-ILD affects multiple organ systems and has many comorbidities, interprofessional management is essential from diagnosis throughout the disease course.

In this expert-led activity, you will be able to self-assess your baseline levels of understanding, skill, and confidence, resulting in a tailored educational experience focused on the areas where you need it most.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of pulmonologists, rheumatologists, radiologists, pathologists, nurse practitioners, and other clinicians involved in the care of patients with systemic sclerosis-related interstitial lung disease.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Diagnose SSc-ILD promptly and conduct comprehensive interprofessional assessments using clinical signs and symptoms, and guideline-directed testing
  • Use recent trial data and guidelines to guide the use of existing and emerging agents to treat SSc-ILD in an interprofessional care team
  • Leverage the interprofessional care team to manage the risk factors and comorbidities of SSc-ILD

Media: Enduring Material
Activity Release Date: June 5, 2022
Activity Expiration Date: July 4, 2023
Time to Complete Activity: 90 minutes

Activity Description

Chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR T) therapy, a validated novel therapeutic strategy in leukemic and lymphoid malignancies, continues to provide new hope for many patients, including those with multiple myeloma, with limited treatment options. Multiple new indications for CAR T-cell therapies have been approved by the FDA already this year, and new research may expand treatment options for patients with heavily pretreated disease or those receiving earlier lines of treatment. With these new therapeutic opportunities, questions arise regarding best practices for using CAR T-cell therapy in the clinic.

Check out PeerView’s “Seminars and Tumor Board” program featuring the latest research and expert guidance on the role of CAR T-cell therapy in modern hematologic cancer care. Gain a thorough understanding of the latest efficacy and safety data on these therapies, and learn how to manage the practical aspects of implementing these therapies in the care of patients with hematologic malignancies. With patient cases drawn from practice, our faculty will guide participants through important clinical considerations, including referral of patients to specialized centers, coordination of care, and detecting and managing distinctive CAR T-cell therapy–related adverse events such as cytokine release syndrome (CRS) and immune effector cell neurotoxicity syndrome (ICANS). Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the timely, safe, and efficacious use of CAR T-cell therapy.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of hematologist-oncologists, oncologists, advanced practice clinicians (including oncology NPs and PAs), oncology nurses, and other clinicians involved in the management of patients with hematologic cancers.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Describe the biologic rationale, mechanisms of action, key efficacy/safety evidence, and expanding clinical roles of current and emerging CAR T-cell therapies for patients with hematologic malignancies

Rising to the Occasion: Improving Outcomes in Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Multiple Myeloma With CAR T-Cell Therapy in Community Practice

Media: Enduring Material
Activity Release Date: June 5, 2022
Activity Expiration Date: July 4, 2023
Time to Complete Activity: 90 minutes

Activity Description

Chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR T) therapy, a validated novel therapeutic strategy in leukemic and lymphoid malignancies, continues to provide new hope for many patients, including those with multiple myeloma, with limited treatment options. Multiple new indications for CAR T-cell therapies have been approved by the FDA already this year, and new research may expand treatment options for patients with heavily pretreated disease or those receiving earlier lines of treatment. With these new therapeutic opportunities, questions arise regarding best practices for using CAR T-cell therapy in the clinic.

Check out PeerView’s “Seminars and Tumor Board” program featuring the latest research and expert guidance on the role of CAR T-cell therapy in modern hematologic cancer care. Gain a thorough understanding of the latest efficacy and safety data on these therapies, and learn how to manage the practical aspects of implementing these therapies in the care of patients with hematologic malignancies. With patient cases drawn from practice, our faculty will guide participants through important clinical considerations, including referral of patients to specialized centers, coordination of care, and detecting and managing distinctive CAR T-cell therapy–related adverse events such as cytokine release syndrome (CRS) and immune effector cell neurotoxicity syndrome (ICANS). Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the timely, safe, and efficacious use of CAR T-cell therapy.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of hematologist-oncologists, oncologists, advanced practice clinicians (including oncology NPs and PAs), oncology nurses, and other clinicians involved in the management of patients with hematologic cancers.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Describe the biologic rationale, mechanisms of action, key efficacy/safety evidence, and expanding clinical roles of current and emerging CAR T-cell therapies for patients with hematologic malignancies
  • Develop strategies to optimize the delivery of CAR T-cell therapy among patients with hematologic malignancies, including considerations for appropriate patient selection, referral to and care coordination with specialized centers, clinical trial enrollment, and pre-/post-treatment care and support
  • Employ proactive strategies and best practices to monitor for and manage key toxicities associated with CAR T-cell therapy in patients with hematologic malignancies, including cytokine release syndrome and neurotoxicity

Re-Examining S1PR Modulation From All Angles in Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis: Impact on Physical and Cognitive Outcomes, and Practical Considerations of Long-Term Therapy

Media: Enduring Material
Activity Release Date: June 3, 2022
Activity Expiration Date: July 2, 2023
Time to Complete Activity: 60 minutes

Activity Description

For individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS), “invisible symptoms” that include cognitive changes and fatigue exacerbate the burden of disease. Emerging evidence indicates that in addition to providing high efficacy, safety, tolerability, and patient convenience, sphingosine 1-phosphate receptor (S1PR) modulators may yield important benefits related to loss of cortical gray matter and whole brain volume, addressing cognition as well as multiple other aspects of MS.

At a recent live event, our expert faculty reviewed the mechanism of action of S1PR modulators and their important role in MS care, with a focus on the clinically relevant distinctions among members of this class—from first-generation fingolimod to the more recently introduced siponimod, ozanimod, and ponesimod. The faculty discussed the role of agent-specific characteristics such as relative selectivity and off-target effects in individualized treatment planning—reviewing key trial data on patient outcomes and concluding with a case-based workshop addressing treatment selection, shared decision-making, and COVID-19 vaccination.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of neurologists, internal and family medicine physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with multiple sclerosis.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Discuss the rationale for the modulation of S1P function as a therapeutic approach in multiple sclerosis (MS) in the context of disease pathophysiology
  • Individualize S1PR modulator therapy for patients with MS based on the latest evidence on safety, efficacy, and the potential impact on physical and cognitive outcomes
  • Apply a patient-centered, team-based approach to treatment selection and sequencing in MS based on the patient’s disease activity, treatment preferences and goals, and therapeutic options

Innovations and Imaging in Multiple Sclerosis: Examining the Evidence, Looking Toward the Future of Bruton Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitors

Media: Enduring Material
Activity Release Date: June 2, 2022
Activity Expiration Date: July 1, 2023
Time to Complete Activity: 60 minutes

Activity Description

Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors show great promise in the quest to identify additional novel interventions to address multiple sclerosis (MS) pathophysiology and help to individualize care. Four BTK inhibitors—evobrutinib, tolebrutinib, fenebrutinib, and remibrutinib—are in phase 3 clinical trials for relapsing and/or progressive MS, based on the potential of these agents to affect processes mediated by B cells and myeloid cells (eg, microglia), which may contribute to inflammation and neurodegeneration.

At a recent live CME/NCPD/CPE event, a panel of expert physicians highlighted the rationale for using BTK inhibitors to treat MS, assessed the latest data from completed and ongoing clinical trials, and reviewed guideline-recommended protocols for patient imaging. In addition to the lively discussion, animated video abstracts further illustrated these topics.

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of neurologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with multiple sclerosis.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Describe the rationale for inhibiting Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) to treat multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Evaluate current evidence related to the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of BTK inhibitors in the treatment of MS
  • Identify patients who may benefit by treatment with BTK inhibitors, based on current evidence and individual treatment needs and priorities
  • Implement guideline-recommended imaging protocols to assess disease activity and monitor treatment response in patients with MS
