The treatment of cancers is becoming more reliant on oral medications that patients take on a chronic basis.  This is an area where community pharmacists have historically had a limited role.  This activity will help to prepare community pharmacists to provide care for patients with breast cancer who are receiving these newer oral agents.  This includes taking a role in the patients' therapy, managing drug interactions, and anticipating and treating adverse events of these new agents.
The educational goal for this activity is to educate community pharmacists about the increasingly important role of oral therapies in the treatment of one of the most common types of cancer.


  • Identify the role of hormonal therapies in the management of hormone-receptor positive breast cancer.
  • Summarize emerging evidence regarding the use of hormonal therapies in breast cancer
  • Explain the mechanism of action of cyclin dependent kinase inhibitors
  • Identify the role of cyclin dependent kinase inhibitors in the treatment of advanced hormone-receptor positive breast cancer
  • Compare and contrast the safety profiles of palbociclib, ribociclib, and abemaciclib
