October 12, 2022

Activity attendees will gain an understanding of the role of the DNA damage response (DDR) pathway in solid tumor tumorigenesis and the latest guidelines and importance of genetic testing/counseling and related treatment recommendations; then they will be guided through an appraisal of current and emerging evidence for PARP inhibitors for solid tumor management. An expert-led discussion in transcending disparities in cancer care and improving equitable access will follow, as will a review of PARP inhibitor toxicity profiles and how to effectively anticipate, prevent, and manage adverse events that may arise. After the didactic portion of the presentation, an interactive case-based presentation will provide attendees an opportunity to apply what they have learned, with an emphasis on appropriate treatment selection, toxicity management, mitigation of modifiable health disparities, and promotion of patient adherence to oral oncolytic therapy.

Target Audience

Oncology, specialty, and managed care pharmacists and physicians attending the 2022 Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) Nexus Annual Meeting.

Learning Objectives

  • Review emerging PARP inhibitor clinical trial data in both the treatment and maintenance settings for solid tumors, and discuss how these agents continue to galvanize change across the disease management continuum.
  • Evaluate the crucial importance of genetic testing/counseling when considering PARP inhibitor therapy for patients with solid tumors.
  • Appraise current expert consensus guideline recommendations for managing solid tumor malignancies with PARP inhibitors, including evidence-based approaches for anticipating, mitigating, and managing adverse events.
  • Recognize healthcare disparities that result in inequitable access and identify approaches for overcoming these obstacles and improving outcomes for all patients.
  • Use a case-based approach to develop practical strategies for appropriate treatment selection, toxicity management, mitigation of healthcare disparities and inequitable access to care, and promotion of patient adherence to PARP inhibitors and other oral oncolytics, with the express goal of improving outcomes across the solid tumor landscape.
