  • Engage and Learn from All-Star Faculty! 

  • Come Prepared to Participate, with camera and microphone in working order and turned on, in interactive role play and case discussions with master Faculty. 


Serving as the capstone for the Engaging Disparities in Prostate Cancer Care initiative, this live, HIGHLY INTERACTIVE virtual workshop is designed by Course Co-Directors, Dr. Adam Murphy and Dr. Aisha Langford to lead participants through the process of engaging patients in Shared Decision Making (SDM) regarding prostate cancer screening and prostate cancer treatment decisions. 

  • Participants will be separated into small groups using virtual breakout rooms to engage in clinical role play and case discussion.
  • In each breakout room, expert Faculty will introduce multiple patient case scenarios and facilitate role play amongst their small group.
  • The technology will allow all Faculty and participants to see each other and engage in real time with all cameras and microphones turned on.
  • All participants must come prepared to fully engage in the clinical role play scenarios and case discussion in order to thoroughly benefit from this virtual education experience.   

This course supports the AUA’s efforts to foster, build and advocate for a diverse and inclusive environment within the urology community.


Engaging Disparities in Prostate Cancer Care consists of multiple educational activities featuring a variety of formats for the urologic healthcare team. These activities reinforce the essentials of Shared Decision Making (SDM) to better assist high-risk patients in regards to prostate cancer screening and treatment. A live webinar, three episode podcast series, Clinical Problem Solving (CPS) Protocol and Live Virtual Workshop will enable participants to be better prepared to apply SDM in their practice and comply with the recently proposed USPSTF Grade C recommendation for PSA screening. The latest research documenting the benefits and drawbacks of PSA screening as well as treatment approaches for incident localized prostate cancer will be incorporated. 

These complimentary educational offerings are intended for a wide-range of health practitioners, both experienced and new to the field, as well as graduate trainees. Learners will hear, observe, evaluate, practice, and role-play SDM strategies and culturally sensitive scenarios for prostate cancer screening and treatment decisions. Activities will offer not only didactic information, but also interactive training sessions with a focus on recommended strategies for improving SDM, participants' attitudes towards SDM, knowledge about SDM, implicit and explicit biases in SDM, and skills for multi-level SDM (i.e. patient and family caregivers).
