Live CME/MOC-accredited webinar

Topics to Be Discussed

  • Genetic testing in ovarian cancer (OC); integration of PARP inhibitor maintenance therapy into the management of newly diagnosed OC with a BRCA mutation
  • Clinical utility of maintenance PARP inhibitors for patients with BRCA wild-type advanced OC
  • Available data with PARP inhibitors in combination with immunotherapeutic and chemotherapeutic agents in the management of advanced OC
  • Identification and management of side effects and other practical considerations with the use of PARP inhibitors for advanced OC

Target Audience
This activity is intended for gynecologic oncologists, medical oncologists, gynecologists and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of gynecologic cancers.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to

  • Appraise guideline recommendations, consensus statements and clinical investigator perspectives regarding the indications for and selection of genetic testing platforms in ovarian cancer (OC), and use the results of these assessments to guide long-term treatment.
  • Recognize the FDA approval of olaparib as maintenance therapy after first-line platinum-based chemotherapy for patients with advanced OC harboring a deleterious or suspected deleterious BRCA germline or somatic mutation, and appropriately integrate this agent into clinical care.
  • Review emerging trial data evaluating niraparib as maintenance therapy in the first-line setting for patients with or without BRCA mutations, and consider the clinical and research implications of these findings.
  • Understand the biologic rationale for and available data with the use of PARP inhibitors in combination with anti-angiogenic agents, and discern how this strategy affects current therapeutic algorithms.
  • Appreciate available clinical trial data with PARP inhibitors in combination with front-line chemotherapy and then as maintenance treatment for patients with newly diagnosed OC, and evaluate the potential role of this novel therapeutic approach.
  • Assess available clinical trial data with and approved indications for FDA-endorsed PARP inhibitors for patients with recurrent, platinum-sensitive and multiple regimen-refractory OC in order to personalize care plans incorporating these agents.
  • Recognize the toxicities associated with PARP inhibitors commonly used in the care of patients with OC, and offer supportive management strategies to minimize or ameliorate these side effects.
  • Develop an understanding of the rationale for, emerging data with and potential clinical roles of combining PARP inhibitors with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies, and counsel appropriate patients about the availability of and participation in research studies.

Accreditation Statement

Credit Designation Statement
Research To Practice designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

CME Credit Form
CME and ABIM MOC credit form links will be emailed to each participant within 5 business days of the activity.

American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) — Maintenance of Certification (MOC)
Successful completion of each CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component and a short post-test, enables the participant to earn up to 1 Medical Knowledge MOC point in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.

Please note, this program has been specifically designed for the following ABIM specialty: medical oncology.
