Webinar: 2020 Guideline: Advanced Prostate Cancer (2020)

June 30, 2020

Course Director: Michael S. Cookson, MD, MMHC

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.

  1. Analyze breakthrough treatments in the management of advanced and metastatic hormone sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC) and castration resistant prostate cancer (CRPC).
  2. Identify the active agents and their mechanism of action in the management of mHSPC, nmCRPC and mCRPC.
  3. Describe the indications and combinations for treatment with approved agents in the management of mHSPC.
  4. Describe the sequencing and indications for active treatment with approved agents in the management of nmCRPC.
  5. Review the evidence and outcomes on the treatment of M1 HSPC, MO CRPC and M1 CRPC as outlined in the newly updated AUA Advanced, Metastatic and CRPC guidelines.
