This 60-minute CME-certified activity can be hosted in conjunction with your institution's regularly-scheduled grand rounds or tumor board meetings, and will include audience polling questions interwoven with didactic presentation. 

Overview

Given the recent approval of several PARP inhibitors in the maintenance setting and as standalone therapies for managing recurrent ovarian cancer, the on-going development of novel PARP inhibitors, and the volume of data emerging from clinical trials evaluating PARP inhibitors either alone or in combination with other therapies, it is critical for providers to assess the efficacy, safety, and the most up-to-date data from recent clinical trials so they can use these agents optimally to manage their patients.

A limited number of programs are available - request yours today!

Target Audience

This activity is intended for community and academic medical oncologists, gyencologic oncologists, advanced practitioners (NP/PA/PharmD), and other clinicians who treat patients with gynecologic malignancies. 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity learners should be able to:

  • Assess the efficacy and safety of PARP inhibitors of their combinations in the maintenance and treatment setting for the management of patients with ovarian cancer
  • Evaluate the various genetic testing platforms and their utility in identifying appropriate patients for platinum-based therapy and PARP inhibitor therapy
  • Develop strategies for the optimal utilization of PARP inhibitors when managing patients with ovarian cancer
  • ‚ÄčReview novel agents that are under investigation for the treatment of platinum-resistant ovarian cancer
