Statement of Need

This Grand Rounds series focuses on educating, informing, and empowering clinicians involved in the care of patients with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) to positively impact the racial/ethnic disparities that negatively impact Black women. Our faculty will explore strategies that promote equitable care and outcomes for all patients; evaluate the role of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) in TNBC; and discuss the rapidly evolving clinical practice guidelines, safety and efficacy data of novel therapies, and practical ADC management strategies to anticipate and mitigate adverse events.

Join our expert faculty for this 60-minute program that will help you understand the complexity of TNBC and the far-reaching racial disparities intrinsic to the disease.


Learning Objectives

  • Employ strategies to promote equitable care and outcomes for all patients with TNBC
  • Evaluate clinical trial data for ADCs as part of the evolving and expanding TNBC treatment calculus, including recent FDA approvals and updated guideline recommendations
  • Incorporate evidence-based treatment plans with an emphasis on the placement of novel therapeutics as part of equitable care for patients with TNBC
