Advances in ADT: A Guide for Urologists and APPs Webcast (2023)
Based on the documented need from the AUA Advanced Prostate Cancer Global Needs Assessment, the AUA has created Advances in ADT: A Guide for Urologists (2023), a series of educational offerings to update urologists on the latest advancements in androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) and prostate cancer treatment. This educational initiative is comprised of multiple formats, including a live course, on-demand webcast, and a podcast series. This live virtual course, which is the cornerstone of the initiative features a multidisciplinary panel, engaging in a lively discussion.
