Overcoming Disparity with Novelty in Triple-Negative Breast Cancer: Community Oncology Perspectives on Promoting Equity and Improving Clinical Outcomes
Community oncologists and their interprofessional care team of nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and physician assistants who manage patients with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), specifically those practicing in the southeastern United States.
- Discuss the multifaceted etiology of the racial disparity observed in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), with a focus on both biologic and non-biologic factors, and identify tangible strategies community-based clinicians can employ to promote equitable care and outcomes for all patients.
- Review antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) structure, mechanism of action, and real-world clinical considerations, including dosing, administration, and toxicity management, for community oncology clinicians using ADCs to manage TNBC.
- Examine completed, ongoing, and planned clinical trial data for ADCs as part of the evolving and expanding TNBC treatment calculus, including recent FDA approvals and updated guideline recommendations.
- Using a patient case-driven approach, design evidence-based treatment plans for patients with TNBC, with an emphasis on the placement of novel therapies in the shifting TNBC treatment calculus and the effective integration of socioeconomic and other non-biologic factors into equitable cancer care.
