Position Your Hormone-Sensitive Patients With Breast Cancer for Success: Understanding Endocrine Therapy Options

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Endocrine therapy options currently include ovarian suppression along with three main classes of drugs: the selective estrogen receptor modulators (tamoxifen and toremifene), an estrogen receptor antagonist (fulvestrant), and the aromatase inhibitors (letrozole, anastrozole, and exemestane). Learn how the specific choice of therapy depends upon the stage of disease, prior therapy, and the menopausal status of the patient. By the session’s end, you’ll have gained a thorough understanding of endocrine therapy, the backbone of hormone receptor positive breast cancer therapy.

1. Understand the emerging treatment options, including endocrine therapy, for breast cancer.  
2. Describe the implications of these treatment options for nursing practice.
