ASCO: Medical Crossfire®: Evolving Applications for PARP Inhibitors in Ovarian Cancer: Building on a Solid Foundation

ASCO: Medical Crossfire®: Evolving Applications for PARP Inhibitors in Ovarian Cancer: Building on a Solid Foundation


Sunday, June 3, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Dinner and registration: 6:30 PM – 7:00 PM

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

What You'll Learn

  • The utility of PARP inhibition in ovarian cancer
  • How to improve patient outcomes with data from Chicago
  • Adverse event management PARP inhibitor treatment

Overview:

Multiple poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors have been approved for both treatment and ongoing maintenance indications following the results of recent key studies. These approvals have heralded an opportunity to significantly improve outcomes for your patients. It can be difficult for any clinician to keep up with the accelerated pace and volume of clinical advancements associated with PARP inhibition, and we would like to present an opportunity to help you stay current and arm yourselves with the clinical knowledge and insight necessary to optimize safety and efficacy outcomes for your patients.

We have developed an educational activity that will feature a panel of experts in the management of ovarian cancer who will present and assess the latest data on PARP inhibition and the clinical implications of the data for your practice. The Medical Crossfire® format for this symposium is ideally suited for you to consider expert perspectives on key learning points pertaining to the use of PARP inhibition in ovarian cancer. During this case-based activity, clinical scenarios will be presented that explore nuances of patient care that may enhance your own practice. Decisions that are made in real-world clinical scenarios are not always clearly demarcated by clinical trial data, and this activity will give you the chance to hear how the experts substantiate their decision making when multiple treatment options may be viable.

Target Audience

This educational program is intended for medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, and radiation oncologists interested in the treatment of ovarian cancer. Nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients with ovarian cancer are also invited to participate.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Define safety and efficacy outcomes from clinical trials of PARP inhibitors, both in the maintenance setting and in the setting of recurrence following prior use of platinum-based therapy
  • Identify strategies for anticipating, recognizing, and managing adverse events of PARP inhibitor therapy in patients with ovarian cancer
  • Describe the therapeutic rationale for the use of PARP inhibitors in combination with other novel treatments, evaluating specific clinical trials using PARP inhibitors in combination and recognizing the potential for enrolling patients in these trials
  • Utilize the most up-to-date clinical evidence in PARP for clinical decision-making in patients with ovarian cancer in the context of current evolving treatment options
