F002 - Novel Therapies for Cutaneous Malignancies: What's New and What's Ahead
Friday, February 16; 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Distinguish appropriate use of current and novel therapies in cutaneous malignancies.
- Recognize and manage known common side effects of therapies utilized in cutaneous malignancies.
- Recognize the correct clinical setting in which these therapies are best indicated.
Several recent advances in the molecular biology of cutaneous oncology have culminated in the development of multiple targeted therapies. As cutaneous oncology moves towards a more personalized approach, dermatologists should be aware of the multitude of therapies that exist and where current ongoing research is heading, to ensure that patients are provided with the most appropriate treatments. Knowledge of the biological mechanisms of the drugs and their effects will improve patient counseling and quality of care.
