ASCO: PARP Inhibition in Breast Cancer

ASCO: PARP Inhibition in Breast Cancer: Practical Methods to Interpret and Apply the Evidence for Your Patients

Date: Friday, June 1, 2018

Time: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Dinner and registration: 6:30 PM – 7:00 PM

Hilton Chicago
International Ballroom South (Second Level)
720 S. Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL 60605

What You'll Learn:

  • Which patients will benefit from PARP inhibition strategies
  • How data presented in Chicago can change your daily practice
  • Management techniques for PARP-associated toxicities


A great deal of progress has been made in understanding the mechanistic underpinnings for the use of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor therapy in the treatment of patients with breast cancer. As evidence continues to accumulate, it is important to be able to apply clinical data to the development of treatment paradigms that maximize outcomes for your patients. This includes efficacy considerations, as well as the development of strategies to identify and mitigate predictable treatment-related adverse events (TRAEs) in a timely fashion.

To help you optimize the management of your patients with breast cancer, we have developed an exciting, interactive educational activity that will highlight the latest clinical evidence pertaining to the use of PARP inhibitors. The format will include a combination of didactic presentations and brief panel discussions framed by clinically applicable case presentations. There will also be multiple opportunities for you to present questions to the panel of clinical experts.

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward medical oncologists who treat patients with breast cancer. Nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of breast cancer are also invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:

  • Outline the mechanistic rationale that underlies the application of PARP inhibition approaches for the management of breast cancer
  • Apply key evidence from PARP inhibition trials in breast cancer, and report recent findings from investigations evaluating potential new roles for these approaches
  • Summarize strategies to mitigate predictable toxicities that have been reported with the use of PARP inhibition strategies
  • Identify strategies that are being explored to maximize the efficacy of PARP inhibition in the treatment of patients with breast cancer
