CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • OVERVIEW OF ACTIVITY
    Cancers of the genitourinary system affect hundreds of thousands of individuals in the United States each year and account for almost 30% of all newly diagnosed human cancer cases. Although genitourinary cancers are a diverse array of distinct diseases, tumors of the prostate are definitively the most prevalent and thus the topic of extensive ongoing clinical research. Consequently, the clinical management of prostate cancer is frequently in a state of evolution, necessitating rapid and consistent clinician access to emerging data sets of relevance to the continuous delivery of quality cross-functional care. To provide oncology nurses with therapeutic strategies to address the disparate needs of patients with metastatic prostate cancer, the Oncology Nursing Update audio series employs one-on-one interviews with medical oncologists and nurses who are experts in caring for patients with prostate cancer. On completion of this CNE activity, oncology nurses should be able to formulate an up-to-date and more complete approach to the care of these patients.

    PURPOSE STATEMENT
    To present the most current research developments in metastatic prostate cancer and to provide the perspectives of a nurse practitioner and clinical investigator on the treatment of metastatic prostate cancer.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Discuss the benefits and risks associated with systemic therapies used in the evidence-based treatment of castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), including “secondary” hormonal agents, chemotherapy and radiopharmaceuticals.
    • Develop a plan of care to manage the side effects associated with these therapies to support quality of life and continuation of treatment.
    • Review the available efficacy and safety data related to the use of the newly FDA-approved alpha emitter radium-223 and other bone-targeted agents in patients with skeletal metastases to facilitate appropriate counseling for individuals considering these therapeutic approaches.
    • Identify opportunities to enhance the collaborative role of oncology nurses in the comprehensive biopsychosocial care of patients with metastatic CRPC.
