Statement of Need:
Breast cancer accounts for approximately 30% of cancer diagnoses among women in the United States and is the second-leading cause of cancer death in this population (ACS, 2019). Although many women benefit from regular screening as well as earlier and improved treatment, approximately 6% present with metastatic disease, and up to 30% with no initial lymph node involvement eventually develop metastatic disease (Siegel et al, 2019; Mortensen et al, 2018). Women with MBC have a poorer prognosis than the overall population of breast cancer patients, and issues such as refractory or resistant disease, cumulative toxicities, adverse events, depression, and financial hardship are often encountered (Mortensen et al, 2018). Despite progress in understanding the pathogenesis of MBC and advances in therapy, the 5-year overall survival rate remains only 27% (Siegel et al, 2019).

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
• Identify prognostic markers that impact treatment selection and treatment goals to individual patients with metastatic breast cancer (MBC)
• Evaluate the efficacy and safety profiles of novel therapies for HER2-positive, HER2-negative, and triple-negative MBC
• Assess strategies to manage treatment-related adverse events, promote adherence to therapy, and ensure patient-centered MBC care
