Accreditation Statement The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education activities for physicians.
Credit Designation StatementAACR has designated this live activity for a maximum of 24.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Credit certification for individual sessions may vary, dependent upon compliance with the ACCME Accreditation Criteria. The final number of credits may vary from the maximum number indicated above.
Claiming (CME) CreditPhysicians and other health care professionals seeking AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ for this live continuing medical education activity must complete the online CME Request for Credit Survey by Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2019. Certificates will only be issued to those who complete the survey. The Request for Credit Survey will be available via a link on the on this webpage and via email. Your CME certificate will be sent to you via email after the completion of the activity.
Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 24.25 Medical Knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
To receive ABIM MOC, participants must request MOC in the CME Request for Credit Survey and complete all questions. Once these steps are completed, AACR will submit your completion information via the ACCME’s Program and Activity Reporting System for the purpose of granting MOC points.Statement of Educational Need, Target Audience, and Learning ObjectivesMolecularly targeted therapies have achieved great success from the “early days” of selective estrogen receptor modulators and aromatase inhibitors to more recent developments in signal transduction, histone deacetylases, and proteasome inhibitors. However, for each of these success stories, new challenges arise in terms of resistance, further refinement of these “targeted therapies” based on molecular sub-classification, and the opportunity to develop new combination therapies, especially with new immunotherapies.
