Webcast: Global Advancements in Prostate Cancer: Best Practices in Hormonal Therapy (2022) - English

Global Advancements in Prostate Cancer: Best Practices in Hormonal Therapy (2022) is an exciting new global educational initiative featuring a Moderator and two other subject matter experts in an interactive, interview-style presentation and discussion.  

Based on the documented need from the AUA Phase IV Advanced Prostate Cancer Global Needs Assessment, the AUA has produced this new series of educational offerings for urologists and the urologic care team focused on the advancements in treating patients with advanced prostate cancer. This course will address the latest developments in advanced prostate cancer disease states mHSPC, M0 CRPC and M1 CRPC with a focus on patient selection/identification, mechanisms of action, side effects, and sequencing, advances in imaging with recent FDA approvals of novel PSMA - PET scans, patient outcomes and AUA Clinical Guideline recommendations. 

The webcast will be made available on AUAUniversity and AUA's YouTube channel. Additionally, the course will be released as part of AUA's podcast series. Learners will also be provided with links to access additional resources including the AUA’s clinical guidelines discussed during the virtual courses and associated patient resources.
