The treatment armamentarium for advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has undergone rapid expansion with the validation of novel multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) and immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies. More recently, the emergence of dual checkpoint blockade and immunotherapy-TKI combinations in RCC has increased the number of treatment choices in the frontline setting, allowed for greater flexibility when selecting second-line agents, and sparked additional research into TKI and immune checkpoint inhibitor options in earlier disease settings. In the wake of these advances, understanding how to effectively select and sequence newer regimens through multiple lines of therapy while ensuring safe usage is crucial to maximize beneficial patient outcomes throughout the advanced RCC continuum. This unique “How I Think, How I Treat” educational on-demand activity, based on an event held adjunct to the 18th International Kidney Cancer Symposium, features personal insights from leading kidney cancer experts on how they are adapting their own practice based on the evidence supporting optimized care in advanced RCC in the context of patient-, disease-, and treatment-specific factors, as well as how the innovations fueling modern approaches to care are improving outcomes for patients with RCC. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Assess the latest evidence and clinical implications of novel approaches, including new multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), immune checkpoint inhibitors, and combination therapies in advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC), Select optimal frontline treatment options among TKIs and combination approaches (dual checkpoint inhibition or targeted agents plus immune checkpoint inhibitors) for individual patients with advanced RCC based on relevant patient- and disease-related characteristics, including in the context of clinical trial enrollment, Apply validated targeted therapy and immunotherapy options effectively for patients with pretreated advanced RCC through multiple lines of therapy that reflect considerations of prior treatment history and patient comorbidities, Employ effective strategies to prevent and/or manage treatment-related complications with multitargeted TKIs and immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy in patients with RCC
