For decades, patients with advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer had few options for systemic treatment and a generally poor prognosis. This outlook has changed recently with the development of novel targeted therapies that have expanded the options for treatment and improved response and survival compared to traditional approaches. Identifying appropriate patients for these agents requires an understanding of endometrial cancer molecular characteristics, individual patient factors that may influence response or toxicity, and an ability to educate patients and their families on the potential benefits and risks of approved and investigational agents in advanced clinical trials. This interactive CE/CME activity challenges learners to assess their knowledge of this rapidly evolving clinical landscape and to deepen their knowledge of novel approaches to disease control and toxicity management for women.

After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Identify current and emerging recommendations for molecular profiling in endometrial cancer (EC) and their potential implications for prognosis and treatment
- Review evidence for novel agents for advanced or recurrent EC, including potential treatment selection factors
- Develop team-based strategies to address challenges to optimal treatment, including identification and management of side effects of novel agents
