During this special interest group meeting, you'll learn from experts well-versed in breast cancer therapies, testing, and patient care. They'll teach you key patient education messages for HER2/neu agents, describing their pharmacologic differences, administration schedule, and toxicity profile. You'll then learn to teach patients about the differences between genetic and genomic testing, as well as the strengths and limitations of several genomic assays. You'll also learn how to implement a successful art program for patients with breast cancer. 

SIG members will also be available in Hall A's special interest group area to share practical tips on taking the CBCN® certification exam.
