- Management of patients receiving PARPi therapy for ovarian cancer
- Adverse event management for patients receiving PARPi therapy
This educational activity is designed for gynecologic oncologists, medical oncologists, and other healthcare providers involved in the management of patients with advanced ovarian cancer.
After successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe factors that impact treatment decision-making throughout the course of advanced ovarian cancer
- Define platinum sensitivity according to current guidelines
- Assess the role of germline and somatic BRCA testing and other biomarkers of genomic instability
- Evaluate the role of PARP inhibitors as maintenance therapy for relapsed platinum-sensitive disease
- Identify current and emerging settings in the clinical course of the disease for the use of PARP inhibitors
- Identify adverse events associated with PARP inhibitors, and select appropriate strategies to help ensure patient treatment adherence and optimum quality of life
This educational activity is supported by a grant from AstraZeneca.
