- Differentiate among side effects associated with chemotherapeutic agents, hormone therapies (including bone health), targeted therapies, and PARP inhibitors, and risk stratification and side effect management strategies to improve adherence/outcomes.
- Assess the importance and challenges in advocating lifestyle changes, treatment adherence, the consequences of non-adherence, and methods for improving adherence.
