This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of dermatologists, Mohs surgeons, medical oncologists and the multidisciplinary care team who care for patients with either basal cell or cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas.
This enduring activity will inform clinicians of the rationale for use of immunotherapy in non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), specifically keratinocyte carcinomas, and how immunotherapy may be a therapeutic adjunct to treatment of NMSCs. Key topics that will be covered through didactic and case-based discussions include pathophysiology, mechanisms of tumor cell dissemination and post-surgical recurrence, emerging use of immune checkpoint inhibition in the neo-adjuvant setting of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, as well as efficacy and safety data from studies of immunotherapy in patients with either advanced basal cell or advanced cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas.
Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to:
- Discuss cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma tumor cell dissemination and post-surgical recurrence
- Evaluate the application of immune checkpoint inhibition in the neo-adjuvant setting of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma
- Review the efficacy and safety data of immunotherapy in patients with either advanced basal cell carcinoma or advanced cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma
