Learning Objectives
• Coordinate comprehensive biomarker analysis for patients diagnosed with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC), and use the results to guide evidence-based care.
• Develop a long-term care plan for individuals with mCRC, considering patient and disease characteristics, including biomarker profile, tumor location, prior systemic therapy, symptomatology and personal goals of treatment.
• Appreciate published research data documenting the efficacy of the BRAF inhibitor encorafenib in combination with the EGFR inhibitor cetuximab for patients with relapsed/refractory mCRC and a BRAF V600E mutation in order to optimally incorporate this therapeutic strategy into current clinical algorithms.
• Appraise the FDA approvals of nivolumab, pembrolizumab and the combination of nivolumab/ipilimumab for patients with microsatellite instability-high or mismatch repair-deficient mCRC, and appropriately integrate these agents into current nonresearch treatment algorithms.
• Educate patients with mCRC about side effects associated with approved and investigational targeted agents and immunotherapies, and develop a plan to optimally recognize and manage these toxicities.
