CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of medical and radiation oncologists, urologists and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of prostate cancer.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Evaluate the published research database supporting the recent FDA approvals of secondary hormonal agents in the management of nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), and apply this information in the recommendation of nonresearch treatment options for patients.
    • Appraise the similarities and differences among commercially available next-generation antiandrogen agents to personalize therapy selection for patients.
    • Recognize the adverse effects associated with hormonal agents commonly used in the management of prostate cancer, and develop strategies to prevent, mitigate and manage these toxicities.
    • Explore available data with cytotoxic and secondary hormonal therapy for hormone-sensitive metastatic prostate cancer to design effective treatment plans for patients.
    • Apply clinical research findings in the determination of best-practice selection and sequencing of available local and systemic treatment modalities for patients with metastatic CRPC.
    • Describe the rationale for testing patients with progressive CRPC for BRCA1/2 or other related mutations, and advise those found to harbor these genetic abnormalities about the FDA approvals and potential benefits of PARP inhibitors.
    • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel agents and strategies for prostate cancer, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
