Target Audience

The intended audience for this activity is gynecologists, obstetricians, family practice physicians, internists, and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients at risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Describe traditional and female-predominant factors that contribute to CVD risk in women.
  • Outline available screening tools and guidelines to identify women with elevated CVD risk.
  • Review available clinical evidence to select treatment for patients who may benefit from reduction of LDL cholesterol for decreased risk of adverse CVD outcomes.
  • Assess evidence-based strategies to reduce triglyceride levels in patients who may benefit from further CVD risk reduction.
  • Define approaches to improve patient communication and education to increase awareness of CVD risks in women and the importance of interventions to reduce risk.

Activity Description

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death globally, and women are disproportionately affected, with higher morbidity and mortality rates than men. This trend has continued despite recent advances in awareness campaigns, gender-based guidelines, as well as available therapies. In the United States, CVD accounts for approximately 1 of every 5 female deaths, with almost 300,000 deaths in women each year. In addition to traditional cardiovascular risk factors, women often carry several nontraditional risk factors, many of which are related to pregnancy, hormonal influences, or comorbid disorders. Furthermore, women are less likely to receive guideline-recommended diagnostic testing and therapies. The faculty of this CME activity will address CVD risk factors, appropriate screening, as well as recent advances in management to improve outcomes and reduce CVD mortality.

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity is gynecologic oncologists, medical oncologists, advanced practitioners (NP/PA/PharmD), and other clinicians who treat patients with gynecologic malignancies.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Assess the efficacy and safety of PARP inhibitors or their combinations in the maintenance and treatment setting for the management of patients with ovarian cancer
  • Evaluate the various genetic testing platforms and their utility in identifying appropriate patients for platinum-based therapy and PARP inhibitor therapy
  • Develop strategies for the optimal utilization of PARP inhibitors when managing patients with ovarian cancer
  • Review novel agents that are under investigation for the treatment of platinum-resistant ovarian cancer

Activity Description

This activity will provide expert guidance regarding the use of currently-available therapies and companion diagnostics and will help clinicians plan for the optimal integration of new indications and combinations into practice when they become available.

Statement of Educational Need

Considering the volume of research regarding the use of PARP inhibitors for patients with ovarian cancer, clinicians are challenged to evaluate and interpret the clinical significance of emerging data, both scientific and clinical. Thus, clinicians treating patients with ovarian cancer need expert guidance to evaluate emerging scientific and clinical data, use existing PARP inhibitors safely and effectively, and plan strategies to appropriately integrate new indications and combinations into practice when they become available, in consideration of patient needs and preferences.

Agenda

  • Currently Available Systemic and Maintenance Therapies and Emerging Combinations for the Treatment of Ovarian Cancer
  • Integrating Genetic Testing Into Clinical Practice
  • Real-World Use of Poly ADP Ribose Polymerase Inhibitors (PARPi): Case-Based Discussion
  • Summary

This activity will provide expert guidance regarding the use of currently-available therapies and companion diagnostics and will help clinicians plan for the optimal integration of new indications and combinations into practice when they become available.

Statement of Educational Need

Considering the volume of research regarding the use of PARP inhibitors for patients with ovarian cancer, clinicians are challenged to evaluate and interpret the clinical significance of emerging data, both scientific and clinical. Thus, clinicians treating patients with ovarian cancer need expert guidance to evaluate emerging scientific and clinical data, use existing PARP inhibitors safely and effectively, and plan strategies to appropriately integrate new indications and combinations into practice when they become available, in consideration of patient needs and preferences.

Agenda

  • Currently Available Systemic and Maintenance Therapies and Emerging Combinations for the Treatment of Ovarian Cancer
  • Integrating Genetic Testing Into Clinical Practice
  • Real-World Use of Poly ADP Ribose Polymerase Inhibitors (PARPi): Case-Based Discussion
  • Summary

Medical oncologists, community oncologists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Other healthcare professionals such as radiation oncologists, primary care physicians, pharmacists, and nurses who treat patients with HR+, HER2- metastatic breast cancer (mBC) may benefit from participation in the proposed educational activities. 

Learning Objectives

  • Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
    • Engage patients with HR+ HER2- mBC in a shared decision making (SDM) process on the goals of treatment, treatment plan development, and treatment modification.
    • Identify strategies to enhance symptom management and increase adherence to treatment.

Activity Description

The advent of CDK4/6 inhibitors as effective treatment for mBC is a great milestone for patients with mBC but requires a deep understanding of the benefits and risks of the treatment options. From SDM simulation to symptom management, breast cancer specialists, Erika Hamilton, MD, and Lauren Czapla, NP, team up to provide a practical update for integrating SDM in practice and strategies to enhance symptom management and increase adherence.

Statement of Educational Need

Cancer treatment decision making is challenging because there are multiple effective therapies that are interconnected, with a complex interplay between their benefits and risks. SDM is a best practice health care process used to help patients but is not fully integrated in breast cancer care.

Agenda

  • Overview of SDM to improve treatment adherence and patient outcomes.
  • Simulation of SDM with a patient with HR+, HER2- mBC.
  • Overview of strategies to enhance symptom management and increase adherence to treatment.
