Program Description

Expert faculty Richard Finn, MD, discusses treatment options and strategies in a case-based approach for two patients who have failed conventional therapies and may be candidates for immunotherapy. The activity features an online virtual patient platform that affords clinicians an opportunity to absorb relevant clinical and evidence-based information.

Intended Audience

This activity is intended for physicians (oncologists, interventional radiologists, hepatologists) and other clinicians who care for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Differentiate the mechanisms of action and scientific rationale of currently available systemic therapies with the use of immunotherapy approaches in advanced HCC
  • Discuss the role of new and emerging immunotherapies in current treatment paradigms for advanced HCC
  • Review the efficacy, safety and tolerability of emerging agents for advanced HCC and the management of immune-related adverse events
  • Evaluate the evolving immunotherapeutic research landscape, including ongoing studies in earlier stages of disease as well as personalized and locoregional therapies
