Are you up to date on the practice-changing evidence supporting the use of immunotherapy in resectable melanoma? In this activity, a panel of surgical and medical oncology experts will guide you through these new developments and provide insights on the real-world use of immunotherapy in resectable melanoma, including expanded applications of immunotherapy. The panelists will tackle topics such as the use of checkpoint inhibitors as standard adjuvant therapy in stage III/IV melanoma; the potential of adjuvant immunotherapy in stage II disease; efficacy, safety, and dosing information on neoadjuvant immunotherapy; and emerging novel immune-based treatments in resectable melanoma (eg, LAG-3 inhibitors). This program will help inform the identification of optimal candidates for immunotherapy, address treatment selection and dosing considerations, and support effective management of immune-related events. Upon completion of this CE activity, participants will be able to: Summarize updated evidence and guideline recommendations supporting the use of adjuvant and neoadjuvant immunotherapy in resectable or potentially resectable melanoma, including in stage II, III, and IV settings, Select appropriate adjuvant immunotherapy options for patients with resected melanoma requiring additional treatment, including those with BRAF-mutant and wild-type disease, Integrate neoadjuvant immunotherapy into the management of patients with melanoma who may benefit from presurgical treatment, Manage immune-related adverse events in patients with melanoma receiving immunotherapy in conjunction with surgery.
