This educational activity is designed for European gynecologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and management of gynecologic malignancies.

After successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the rationale and ongoing trials evaluating immunotherapies for the treatment of gynecologic cancers
  • Select optimal management for newly diagnosed advanced ovarian cancer, including the use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy and targeted therapy in the front-line therapy setting
  • Explain the role of predictive biomarkers such as BRCA mutations and homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) score for treatment with PARP inhibitors
  • Identify patients with relapsed ovarian cancer who may benefit from secondary debulking surgery, targeted maintenance therapy, or use of platinum-free chemotherapy
  • Describe management of treatment-related adverse events, including optimal prophylaxis of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV)
  • Evaluate treatment options for patients with uterine sarcoma and other uterine cancers
  • Assess standard and emerging therapies for advanced cervical cancer

This educational activity is supported by grants from ImmunoGen, Inc.; PharmaMar S.A.; and Tesaro.
