Advances in™ Endometrial Cancer: Focus on Immunotherapeutic and Molecularly Targeted Strategies

Release Date: November 8, 2019
Expiration Date: November 8, 2020
Media: Internet - based

Activity Overview

Endometrial cancer has the greatest incidence among gynecological malignancies and is the most prevalent cancer in women. Early detection, facilitated by the presence of symptoms in women with stage I disease, leads to a good prognosis, with standard first-line treatments that include surgery and radiotherapy. However, a significant unmet treatment need persists for patients with advanced disease. Immune checkpoint inhibition, molecularly targeted therapies, and combination strategies are being pursued for use in these patient populations.

The Advances in™ Endometrial Cancer: Focus on Immunotherapeutic and Molecularly Targeted Strategies educational activity will aid clinicians in putting into practice a guideline-based approach for managing patients through a series of video interviews with a faculty expert in endometrial cancer. The essentials of disease classification and molecular testing, clinical trial data, current and emerging treatment strategies, and management of treatment-related toxicities will be discussed.

Benefits of Participating

  • Increase your knowledge related to the historical and current classifications of endometrial cancer and recognize the role of testing for molecular markers in clinical practice.
  • Build confidence in your ability to integrate current and emerging immunotherapeutic and molecularly targeted agents into treatment plans for patients with endometrial cancer.
  • Learn strategies to effectively monitor and manage adverse events that occur with current treatments in endometrial cancer, including combination therapies.

Target Audience

This educational initiative is directed toward medical oncologists, gynecologic oncologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists, and surgical oncologists who treat patients with gynecologic malignancies. Obstetrician/gynecologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, fellows, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of gynecologic malignancies will also be invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this educational activity, you should be better prepared to:

  • Explain guideline recommendations for molecular testing in endometrial cancer to identify clinically significant molecular alterations and how emerging data and techniques may change guidelines in the future.
  • Evaluate current and emerging clinical trial data regarding new treatment options and combination strategies for patients with endometrial cancer.
  • Integrate emerging data into clinical practice scenarios to improve outcomes for patients with endometrial cancer.
  • Identify strategies to monitor and mitigate adverse events associated with current and emerging treatment options for endometrial cancer.
