CE Information and Faculty Disclosures

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of oncology nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists involved in the treatment of prostate cancer.

    By providing information on the latest research developments in the context of expert perspectives, this NCPD activity will assist oncology nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists with the formulation of state-of-the-art clinical management strategies to facilitate optimal care of patients with prostate cancer.


    • 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 discussion of nonresearch treatment options with patients.
    • Counsel patients with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer about the benefits of treatment intensification with the addition of cytotoxic and secondary hormonal therapy to androgen deprivation therapy in order to ensure appropriate and informed shared decision-making.
    • Recognize how prior therapeutic exposure and patient and disease characteristics factor into the selection and sequencing of available systemic treatments for metastatic CRPC.
    • Describe the rationale for testing patients with progressive CRPC for BRCA1/2 or other DNA damage repair pathway abnormalities, and advise those found to harbor these genetic abnormalities about the FDA approvals and potential benefits of PARP inhibitors.
    • Appreciate emerging Phase III data documenting the efficacy of Lu-PSMA-617 in patients with progressive PSMA-positive metastatic CRPC, and consider the potential clinical role of this strategy.
    • Educate patients about the side effects associated with approved therapies commonly employed in the management of advanced prostate cancer, and enact effective strategies to reduce or ameliorate these toxicities.
    • Recall available data from and the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel agents and strategies for prostate cancer, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
