After more than a decade of limited progress, the clinical management of advanced biliary tract cancers is rapidly changing. The introduction of new systemic therapies and the increased understanding of clinically actionable mutations in biliary tract cancers have led to the development of several biomarker-guided treatments and other promising strategies. In this activity, an oncology advanced practice provider discusses the latest clinical data regarding recently validated and forthcoming therapeutic strategies for patients with biliary tract cancers and the nurse’s role in improving patient outcomes through patient education, monitoring for and managing treatment-related toxicities, and counseling patients on therapeutic options, including clinical trial enrollment.
