CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of ovarian cancer.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Recall the data supporting the FDA approval of olaparib as maintenance therapy after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy for patients with advanced ovarian cancer (OC) harboring a deleterious or suspected deleterious BRCA germline or somatic mutation, and appropriately integrate this approach into clinical care.
    • Review available trial data contributing to the FDA approval of niraparib as maintenance therapy in the first-line setting for patients with or without BRCA mutations, and consider the implications for clinical practice.
    • Evaluate the key clinical data resulting in the FDA approval of olaparib in combination with bevacizumab as front-line maintenance therapy, and discern how to incorporate this therapeutic strategy into the treatment algorithm for patients with advanced OC.
    • Assess available clinical trial data with and approved indications for the use of FDA-endorsed PARP inhibitors for patients with recurrent, platinum-sensitive and multiple regimen-refractory OC to design personalized care plans potentially incorporating these agents.
    • Recognize the toxicities associated with PARP inhibitors commonly used in the treatment of OC, and offer supportive management strategies to minimize or ameliorate these side effects.
    • Develop an understanding of the rationale for, available data with and potential clinical roles of PARP inhibitors in combination with chemotherapy, immunotherapy or other targeted therapy, and counsel appropriate patients about the availability of and participation in ongoing research studies.
