CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of prostate cancer.


    • Appraise published research findings and current guideline recommendations on optimal management approaches to biochemical recurrence after local treatment for prostate cancer, and counsel patients regarding the potential benefits of systemic therapy.
    • Evaluate the published research database supporting the FDA approvals of secondary hormonal agents in the management of nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), and apply this information in the discussion of nonresearch treatment options with patients.
    • Explore available data with the use of treatment intensification using cytotoxic or secondary hormonal therapy for metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer, and effectively integrate these approaches into current clinical management algorithms.
    • Establish an evidence-based approach to the selection and sequencing of available therapeutic options for patients with metastatic CRPC (mCRPC), considering age, comorbidities, prior therapeutic exposure and other relevant clinical and biologic factors.
    • Assess the available and emerging research database supporting the use of PARP inhibitors for patients with mCRPC, and discern how to optimally incorporate these agents into current and future treatment plans.
    • Appreciate available Phase III data documenting the efficacy of PSMA-targeted radioligand therapy in patients with progressive PSMA-positive mCRPC, and consider the potential future clinical role of this strategy.
    • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel agents and strategies for prostate cancer, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
