Until recently, progress in the management of gynecologic cancers had been slow with poor prognosis and low survival rates for advanced/metastatic disease. Recent FDA approvals have led to a paradigm shift in treatment for several gynecologic cancers including, endometrial, ovarian, and cervical cancers. Of importance, the swift emergence of novel agents has meant that healthcare professionals may not be familiar with use of new therapies in clinical practice and the prevention and management of their associated toxicities. In this video lecture, 2 gynecologic oncology experts discuss strategies for optimizing the use of novel and emerging therapies for advanced gynecologic cancers, including PARP inhibitor therapy for ovarian cancer, immunotherapies in endometrial cancer, and individualizing therapy decisions and managing adverse events in cervical cancer.
After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Summarize the evidence for current and emerging therapies for gynecologic cancers
- Apply strategies to manage toxicities associated with innovative treatments for ovarian, endometrial, and cervical cancers
- Identify healthcare disparities that can impact the prognosis and optimal management of patients with ovarian, endometrial, and cervical cancers
