The Oncology Center of Excellence Conversations On Cancer public panel discussion series is observing World Ovarian Cancer Day. Join this 1-hour informal panel discussion exploring personal perspectives from survivors, clinicians, and patient advocates on the impact of ovarian cancer. Panelists will discuss global challenges of ovarian cancer drug development, address the importance of clinical trial participation, and discuss barriers for patients’ access to clinical trials.
The discussion will also address successful strategies in educating, recruiting and following up with patients about clinical trials. Other discussion topics will include defining clinical benefit and tolerability of new cancer therapies for maintenance treatment of ovarian cancer, when patients receive a treatment to help keep cancer from coming back after it has disappeared following the initial therapy.
A free-of-charge webcast of this public panel discussion will be provided. Registration for the webcast is required at the link above.
