This CME/CE program will highlight the application of poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors to improve outcomes for patients with advanced ovarian cancer. The expert faculty, led by Dr. Don Dizon, will first review updates to the National Comprehensive Care Network (NCCN) evidence-based guidelines. Next, an analysis of current and emerging clinical trial data of PARP Inhibitors will be discussed. Following, the faculty will assess how to collaborate with the multi-disciplinary team for optimal treatment and management of adverse effects associated with PARP inhibitors. The faculty will conclude with a panel discussion, delving further into healthcare disparities, share decision making, and how to better manage patients with advanced ovarian cancer.
Gynecologic oncologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, advanced practice providers, and other members of the multi-disciplinary care team who care for patients with advanced ovarian cancer.
