This CME/CNE program will provide learners with an update regarding treatment and management of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) through an interactive panel format. The expert faculty will first set the stage for modern day HCC care, reviewing the science, prevalence and current treatment guidelines. Recent clinical trial data of first line, second line and combination therapies will be analyzed along with emerging therapeutics, with the clinical implications debated among the panel. Best practices for managing adverse events through an interprofessional approach will be relayed. At the conclusion of this CME/CNE activity, learner’s will be better equipped to implement optimal, team-based care in clinical practice.
