CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    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 (PC).

    Cancers of the genitourinary system affect hundreds of thousands of individuals within the United States each year and account for more than one fourth of all newly diagnosed human cancer cases. Of this diverse array of distinct diseases, tumors of the prostate are among the most prevalent and are thus the focus of extensive ongoing clinical research. A result of this research is that the clinical management of both early and more advanced presentations of PC is constantly evolving, necessitating rapid and consistent access to learning opportunities for clinicians who care for these patients. To provide clinicians with therapeutic strategies to address the needs of patients with PC, this program will feature one-on-one discussions with leading PC investigators. By providing information on the latest clinical developments in the context of expert perspectives, this activity will assist medical oncologists with the formulation of evidence-based therapeutic strategies, which in turn facilitates optimal patient care.


    • Evaluate recent data on diagnostic and therapeutic advances in PC, and integrate this information into current clinical care.
    • Recall available data on the use of cytotoxic and secondary hormonal therapy in the setting of hormone-sensitive metastatic PC (mPC) to design effective treatment plans for appropriate patients.
    • Consider patient and disease characteristics and published clinical trial data in the selection and sequencing of available local and systemic treatment modalities for patients with mPC.
    • Understand the rationale for testing patients with mPC for DNA damage repair alterations, including BRCA1/2 mutations, and advise individuals found to harbor these genetic abnormalities about participation in clinical trials evaluating the role of a PARP inhibitor.
    • Recall the design of ongoing research studies evaluating other novel agents and strategies for patients with PC, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.

    This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Penn State College of Medicine and Research To Practice. Penn State College of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
