CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    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.

    PURPOSE STATEMENT
    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.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Apply existing and emerging research data in the therapeutic and supportive care of patients with early and advanced 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 use and side effects of cytotoxic and secondary hormonal therapy 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.
    • Recall the recent FDA approval of the first oral gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor antagonist relugolix for patients with advanced prostate cancer.
    • Describe the rationale for testing patients with progressive CRPC for BRCA1/2 mutations or other DNA damage repair pathway abnormalities, and advise individuals found to harbor these genetic abnormalities about the FDA approvals and potential benefits of PARP inhibitors.
    • Educate patients about the side effects associated with approved therapies commonly used for advanced prostate cancer, and provide preventive strategies to reduce or ameliorate these toxicities.
    • Recall available data from clinical trials evaluating novel agents and strategies for prostate cancer.
