• Discuss recent, clinical data and current, expert recommendations to patient selection for new and emerging therapies for advanced and triple-negative breast cancer;
• Recognize the molecular heterogeneity of breast cancer and therapeutic implications for HER2+ and ER+, and metastatic disease;
• Identify the challenges in the treatment of breast cancer in special populations including the elderly and men and how treatment affects women who are pregnant and adjust treatment decisions for specific patients;

• Assess current practices with regard to symptom management during active breast cancer treatment and in survivorship, consider needs for fertility and lifestyle counseling among patients with breast cancer and survivors, and improve current practices;
• Recognize areas of breast cancer management, including diagnostics and staging, imaging, and multimodal management, where recent evidence has changed the clinical practice paradigm, and make appropriately individualized changes in patient management.
