NCCN 2012 Webinar Series: Women’s Health - Management of Locally Advanced and Advanced Ovarian Cancer
This webinar series is designed to provide an in-depth analysis of the evidence and clinical decision-making that led to the development of the NCCN Guidelines® for Breast and Ovarian Cancer, collectively known as Women’s Health Cancers. Participants will learn how to implement the NCCN Guidelines recommendations into their practice and gain a clear understanding of the most up-to-date treatment recommendations for these cancers. As research continues in these areas and new information emerges, it is critical that clinicians are kept up-to-date and informed. These webinars will communicate the NCCN Guidelines in a direct and interactive way to community oncologists and other clinical professionals.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, pathologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who manage patients with cancer.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Educate patients and their caregivers about the symptoms of adverse drug reactions so patients with ovarian cancer can receive immediate treatment when necessary
- Utilize desensitization in select ovarian cancer patients who have had adverse drug reactions so they can continue to receive chemotherapy
- Identify indications for fertility-sparing surgery so that this option can be discussed with younger patients with ovarian cancer who may be eligible for this surgery
