Statement of Need

Strategically designed to foster an understanding of both the disease state complexity and far-reaching disparity intrinsic to endometrial cancer, this educational session will begin with an appraisal of the utility and importance of biomarker testing in advanced endometrial cancer, and the latest data related to immune checkpoint inhibitor treatments in advanced endometrial cancer. The role of the oncology nurse in mitigating and managing toxicities with these agents will also be explored. Finally, expert faculty will then guide attendees through a real-world interactive case-based discussion centered on how the oncology nurse can provision patient-centric care that is both efficacious and equitable through the incorporation of novel immune checkpoint inhibitor therapies and the adoption of renewed perspectives.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the predictive biomarkers that allow for tailored treatment options for patients with endometrial cancer, exploring the role of the oncology nurse in molecular testing.
  • Appraise recent clinical evidence on the safety and efficacy of immune checkpoint inhibitor monotherapy and combinatorial regimens for the treatment of advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer.
  • Analyze the unique toxicities of immune checkpoint inhibitors for endometrial cancer and important considerations for both monitoring and managing adverse events.
  • Use a case-based approach to recognize and address socioeconomic and racial disparities affecting health outcomes in endometrial cancer patients and how the oncology nurse can provide patient-centric care that is both efficacious and equitable.
