The CDK4 and 6 inhibitors have been game-changers in the management of metastatic HR+, HER2- breast cancer, and accumulating evidence is now showing that they may also provide substantial benefits to some patients in early-stage settings, especially as adjuvant therapy for patients at high risk for disease recurrence. Various novel agents are also emerging as additional options for patients with HR+ breast cancer, including selective estrogen receptor degraders (SERDs) and selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs). Rapid developments in the treatment of this subtype of breast cancer provide new hope for further improving outcomes, but they also complicate treatment selection and care decisions for diverse populations of patients with HR+ disease. This PeerView educational activity, based on a recent web broadcast and produced in partnership with the Tigerlily Foundation, focuses on the practicalities of delivering equitable care and individualized treatment to all patients with advanced and early-stage HR+ breast cancer, informed by the latest science, guidelines, and patient needs. Upon completion of this accredited CE activity, participants should be better able to: Cite the rationale for use, mechanisms of action, and features of the various endocrine, targeted, and other therapy options for HR+ breast cancer, Evaluate the most recent efficacy, safety, predictive/prognostic markers, and other key findings from clinical trials assessing different endocrine, targeted, and other emerging therapies and combinations for HR+ breast cancer and the associated relevant practical considerations, Describe the relevant patient-, disease-, and treatment-related factors as well as promising prognostic/predictive markers that could direct selection of endocrine, targeted, and/or other therapies/combinations for patients with HR+ breast cancer, Integrate the latest endocrine, targeted, and/or other treatments/combinations into personalized management plans for eligible patients with HR+ breast cancer in the context of clinical practice or clinical trial participation, according to relevant evidence, best practice recommendations, prognostic/predictive factors, and patient needs and preferences, while addressing disparities in clinical care and research.
