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.

    Cancers of the genitourinary system affect hundreds of thousands of individuals within the United States each year and comprise 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 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 prostate cancer is constantly evolving, necessitating rapid and consistent access to learning opportunities for clinicians.

    To provide clinicians with therapeutic strategies to address the needs of patients with prostate cancer, this program, developed in partnership with the University of South Florida (USF Health) Office of Continuing Professional Development, features presentations and one-on-one discussions with leading clinical investigators. By providing expert perspectives on the latest developments, this activity will assist medical oncologists with the formulation of evidence-based and current therapeutic strategies, which in turn will facilitate optimal patient care.


    • Appraise the published research database supporting approved and investigational secondary hormonal agents in the management of nonmetastatic prostate cancer, and consider this information in the discussion of treatment options for patients.
    • Recall available data on the use of cytotoxic and secondary hormonal therapy in the setting of metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer to design effective treatment plans for patients.
    • Recognize how prior therapeutic exposure and other patient and disease characteristics factor into the selection and sequencing of available systemic treatments for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).
    • Understand the rationale for testing patients with metastatic prostate cancer for DNA damage repair alterations, including BRCA1/2 mutations, and advise individuals found to harbor these genetic abnormalities about the availability of PARP inhibitor-based therapies in or outside of a clinical trial setting.
    • Recall the design of ongoing research studies evaluating other novel agents and strategies for prostate cancer, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
    • Educate patients about the side effects associated with approved therapies commonly employed in the management of advanced prostate cancer, and provide preventive strategies to reduce or ameliorate these toxicities.
