In this activity, multidisciplinary oncology experts discuss immunotherapy advances, focusing on transitioning immunotherapies to earlier disease settings to improve outcomes, prevent recurrences, and increase curability in early-stage cancers. Upon completion of this CE activity, participants will be able to: Describe the rationale for using neoadjuvant, adjuvant, or perioperative immunotherapy in early-stage cancers, key trials and relevant endpoints, and evolving evidence supporting ICI use in different early-stage solid tumors, Implement best practices for multidisciplinary/interprofessional patient and tumor evaluation as well as coordination of care when managing patients with early-stage cancers, Integrate immunotherapies into individualized, multimodal treatment plans for appropriate patients with early-stage cancers in clinical practice or through clinical trial participation, Assess the risks and benefits associated with neoadjuvant/adjuvant/perioperative immunotherapy use to ensure safe, optimally selected, and appropriately timed delivery of systemic and local multimodal therapies to patients with early-stage solid tumors.
