PARP Inhibitors: Assessing the Rapidly Evolving Treatment Landscape Webcast (2021)
PARP Inhibitors: From Research to Practice, an exciting new educational initiative, is a series of three interactive, case-based courses, featuring a unique topic related to PARP Inhibitors. For each session, a Moderator will engage two other subject matter experts in an interactive, interview-style presentation and discussion.
Based on the documented need from the 2019 AUA global needs assessment in advanced prostate cancer, the AUA has produced a new series of educational offerings for the urologic care team focused on PARP inhibitors (PARPi). The first of three in the series PARP Inhibitors: Assessing the Rapidly Evolving Treatment Landscape will address the latest developments in PARPi treatments and advanced prostate cancer care.
This educational series is supported by independent educational grants from:
- Nurse Practitioner
- Physician Assistant
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Review recommended criteria for genetic testing of prostate cancer patients and the options for testing these men.
- Explain importance of testing for germline pathogenic variants and their implication for utilizing novel targeted therapies such as PARP inhibitors and for cascade testing among patient family members.
- Identify men with BRCA1/2 pathogenic variants and variants in other key inherited syndromes, regarding their prostate cancer and other cancer risk, and implement strategies for cancer screening and management.
