Chicago GYN Oncology Updates

May 14, 2021
Chicago GYN Oncology Updates will celebrate the SGO presidency of Dr. Diane Yamada by providing access to the most important educational and scientific updates for women’s healthcare professionals from the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer, including information and resources for members of the entire gynecologic cancer care team who provide treatment and care in the areas of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. This highly interactive program will provide participants with distillations of advances in the fields of ovarian cancer and endometrial cancer including both appropriate use of new therapies including immunotherapy, antiangiogenic agents, and PARP inhibitors, and well as information on appropriate use and applications of genomic testing. In addition, the critical importance of clinical research will be highlighted with presentations of Chicago area investigator-initiated trials and information regarding the importance of and suggestions for inclusion of underserved populations in clinical research.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for gynecologic oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, gynecologists, trainees, research scientists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals dedicated to the care of patients with gynecologic malignancies.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
  • Define the mechanisms of action & side effect profiles of new gynecologic cancer therapies;
  • Discuss how to apply recent PARP inhibitor research to front-line therapy of ovarian cancer;
  • Describe how to select ovarian cancer patients for maintenance therapy with PARP inhibitors and for antiangiogenic therapy;
  • Identify strategies to explain to patients the efficacy results of immunotherapy and immunotherapy/antiangiogenic combination therapy in endometrial cancer;
  • Determine the sequencing and combination of new agents used for gynecologic cancer care with current therapies;
  • Identify contextual barriers to the integration of new gynecologic cancer agents into patient care;
  • Recall how to overcome barriers to recruit underserved populations for clinical trials;
