2022 AUA Annual Meeting Highlights: Prostate Cancer
To better meet the educational needs of urologists and urologic healthcare providers, the AUA gathered from a variety of sources, including comprehensive literature searches and membership surveys to determine where gaps exist in the knowledge, proficiency, and practice in regards to prostate cancer.
The AUA Office of Education thanks the companies who support continuing education of physicians. The AUA recognizes the following companies for providing educational grant support:

- Highlight recent guideline updates in management of clinically localized prostate cancer.
- Describe the various disease states comprising advanced prostate cancer and advancement in management.
- Discuss new treatment available for patients with newly diagnosed M1 prostate and new treatment available for patients with M0 metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer.
- Counsel men with BRCA1/2 mutations, Lynch syndrome, and other key inherited syndromes regarding their prostate cancer risk, and utilize genetic testing results to improve outcomes for patients with metastatic prostate cancer.
