    The success of immunotherapy and targeted therapy in the treatment of advanced melanoma has led to the same therapies being used in the adjuvant setting to reduce the risk of recurrence.

    In this podcast, A/Prof Carlino interviews fellow Medical Oncologist A/Prof Menzies on the evidence for adjuvant therapy to guide clinical decision-making. Understanding the complexities of adjuvant therapy is key to identifying and managing patients suitable for this treatment.

    Topics covered in this discussion include:

    • Weighing up the risk-benefit ratio in the use of adjuvant therapy
    • Patient populations who are not suitable for adjuvant therapy
    • Treating BRAF-mutant patients – which option is best?
    • Adjuvant treatment for mucosal melanoma
    • Follow-up imaging after adjuvant therapy to identify recurrence and toxicities
    • The diminished role of completion lymph node dissection
    • The role of adjuvant radiotherapy
    • Adjuvant therapy in Stage II melanoma
    • Neoadjuvant therapy
    • Management of recurrences on or after adjuvant therapy

    This podcast is suitable for Oncologists, Oncology Nurses and other healthcare professionals.
