New directions for the treatment of metastatic melanoma include targeted therapies that capitalize on the growing understanding of the genetic and molecular features of the disease. In addition, care of patients with advanced disease can benefit from improved assessment of patient response and better communication between healthcare providers. Continuing medical education is the ideal platform for communicating the evolving understanding of novel therapies and new treatment approaches for patients with metastatic melanoma. This educational activity is designed to meet the needs of oncologists, oncology nurses and other healthcare professionals who treat patients with melanoma. Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant should be able to:
