Overview

The 9th Annual International Symposium on Ovarian Cancer and Gynecologic Malignancies® is a one-day educational and scientific meeting that will focus on key clinical topics in the management of ovarian cancer as well as endometrial, uterine, and cervical malignancies.

Join this leading faculty of national experts as they debate and discuss the individualization of treatment plans for patients with gynecologic cancers (such as surgery, adjuvant therapy, chemotherapy, and maintenance therapy), as well as the role of robotic surgery and genomic analyses. Promising novel chemotherapeutics and targeted agents for gynecologic malignancies currently undergoing clinical trial evaluation will also be highlighted during the program. Finally, participants will have an opportunity to submit their own cases for discussion with a faculty tumor board.
 
This highly practical and interactive forum will provide a unique opportunity for medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists and other health care professionals to learn from and interact with leading national faculty in order to increase clinical knowledge, apply new data to practice, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.


Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward medical oncologists and fellows who treat patients with ovarian cancer. Gynecologic oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of ovarian cancer will be invited to participate.


Learning Objectives

  • Formulate frontline and subsequent therapy for patients based upon patient/disease characteristics including use of surgery and adjuvant therapy
  • Discuss the use of first-line intraperitoneal chemotherapy for eligible patients with ovarian cancer
  • Describe the value of maintenance therapy for appropriate patients with ovarian cancer following first-line chemotherapy
  • Assess treatment options for second-line therapy for recurrent metastatic ovarian cancer based on sensitivity or resistance to prior platinum-based chemotherapy
  • Evaluate data on new agents and approaches in development for ovarian cancer
  • Recommend appropriate patients with ovarian cancer for clinical trial enrollment
