Breast cancer is the most common tumor type among women in the United States, accounting for nearly 30% of cancer diagnoses. An estimated 287,850 new cases of invasive breast cancer are reported annually, and 43,250 people die of the disease, making it the second-leading cause of cancer death in women (ACS, 2022a). While earlier detection and the development of novel therapies have expanded treatment options and improved survival in recent years, treatment-related toxicities continue to impact patients’ quality of life (ACS, 2022b). Because toxicities often vary by class of drug prescribed, comprehensive knowledge of each novel therapy class—antibody-drug conjugates, CDK4/6 inhibitors, HER2 tyrosine kinase inhibitors, immune checkpoint inhibitors, monoclonal antibodies, PARP inhibitors, and PI3 kinase inhibitors—are critical to providing optimal patient-centered care.

In this live symposium, nurse faculty will provide expert perspectives and guidance on the management of patients receiving these novel therapies for breast cancer and will review the mechanisms of action, indications, and efficacy/safety profiles of each class.
