Activity Rationale and Purpose
Globally, gastric cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death; however, in North America and most Western European countries, gastric cancer is a relatively rare diagnosis. Currently, outcomes are poor for patients with advanced gastric cancer: 5-year survival is only 4% for those with stage IV disease. In light of the poor outcomes associated with advanced stages of gastric and esophageal cancers, novel treatment approaches are highly desired. Emerging data regarding investigational agents suggest that this goal may soon be realized. Specifically, monoclonal antibodies that inhibit programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) are expected to improve management of both gastric and esophageal cancers by enhancing the body’s immune response. As clinical data emerge, it is critical for advanced practitioners (APs) and oncologists to be well versed in the efficacy, safety, and tolerability data associated with these new agents for the treatment of advanced gastric and esophageal cancers.
The intended audience for this enduring internet activity is physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, advanced degree nurses, oncology and hematology nurses, and pharmacists who specialize in the field of oncology.
After completing this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Effectively manage patients with advanced gastric cancers in a manner that facilitates improved patient outcomes
- Anticipate and address treatment-related side effects associated with current and emerging novel therapies for advanced gastric cancers
- Provide direct care for patients with advanced gastric cancers regardless of the practice setting (academic or community), including knowing when to refer patients from the community to a center with expertise in these tumor types
- Explain the mechanism of action and potential role of emerging novel small molecules, antibodies, and immunotherapies, including PD-1 inhibitors, in the management of advanced gastric cancers
