Receiving a diagnosis of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) can be overwhelming. One of the most difficult things is trying to figure out which is the right treatment option. This gets complicated because many patients who could benefit from enrollment in a clinical trial are not offered trials as a treatment option.
You can get help understanding your treatment options by joining an expert panel of cancer clinicians, patient advocates, and a patient for the new webinar “Navigating Treatment and Support for TNBC” on Friday, June 9 at 10:00 AM ET. Learn about the latest treatments for TNBC, the benefits of clinical trials, and how a patient navigator can help you during the treatment process.
The program will explore 3 major topic areas:
Understanding Treatment for TNBC
- What medications are approved for locally advanced or metastatic TNBC?
- How do the latest treatment options compare to each other?
- Who should you contact about side effects?
What’s on the Horizon and What Does It Mean for Me?
- Emerging and investigational approaches
- When is the right time to talk to your team about clinical trials?
- Dispelling myths about clinical trials
Treatment Through Patient Navigation
- Who can qualify and where to find a patient navigator?
- Services provided by a patient navigator
- Connecting with advocacy organizations for support and resources
The live event features a 10-minute question-and-answer session. You can submit your questions to the expert panels in advance by clicking here.
