CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of genitourinary cancers.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Evaluate the available research database on 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.
    • Explore available data with multimodality therapy for nonmetastatic and metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer in order to design effective treatment plans for patients.
    • Appraise the latest clinical data on available treatment modalities for patients with metastatic CRPC, and apply these findings in the determination of best-practice selection and sequencing of therapies.
    • Recognize the available clinical trial evidence with immune checkpoint inhibitors for nonmetastatic urothelial bladder carcinoma (UBC) to determine the current and potential utility of this strategy in clinical practice.
    • Review available clinical trial data with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies as first-line and maintenance therapy for patients with metastatic UBC, and optimally incorporate these agents into current management algorithms.
    • Recall the mechanisms of action of and pivotal clinical trial findings with enfortumab vedotin, erdafitinib and sacituzumab govitecan for previously treated locally advanced or metastatic UBC, and identify patients for whom treatment with these novel compounds would be appropriate.
    • Consider published and emerging research information, clinical investigator perspectives and available guideline recommendations to individualize first-line therapy for patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
    • Appraise available research data and ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel agents and strategies for RCC, and counsel appropriately selected patients about participation in active research protocols.
