AUA Guidelines on Advanced/Metastatic/Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer Webcast (2021)
This course will review the important and newly updated 2020 AUA Guidelines on Metastatic Hormone Sensitive (HSPC) and Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC). This includes a thorough discussion of new trials and approval of agents directed at the androgen axis for treatment of M1 HSPC and non-metastatic MO CRPC. Faculty will highlight the management of patients with advanced prostate cancer, including mHSPC, nmCRPC, and CRPC, and how therapeutic options have been incorporated into evidence-based guidelines. Also, the role of genetic testing (germline and somatic) in the evaluation of M1HSPC and CRPC, as well as discuss new developments and future research needs for this topic. The course will showcase clinical scenarios in urological practice and the correct application of the new AUA Advanced, Metastatic and CRPC guidelines in those instances. This course will be a benefit to practicing urologists, oncologists, advanced practice providers, as well as residents/fellows and clinicians preparing for their certification and re-certification exams, respectively.
