Webinar: Management of NMIBC: Practical Solutions for Common Problems (2020)

July 30, 2020

Course Director: Kamal S. Pohar, MD

This course will review the most recent AUA practice guidelines for non-muscle-invasive bladder cancer and detail strategies to manage common clinical predicaments involved in the management of these tumors. Specifically we will review: the AUA guidelines; risk stratification and use of cystectomy; selection of the optimal intravesical agent at the right schedule; and treatment of toxicity from intravesical therapy. Practical solutions will be presented that can be readily integrated into the office setting. Emphasis is placed on the evaluation of real clinical cases with open audience participation.


This educational activity is supported by independent educational grants from:
• Astellas
• AstraZeneca
• Bristol-Myers Squibb
• Genentech
• Merck
• Pfizer, Inc.
• Sanofi Genzyme

Target Audience

  • Urologists
  • Residents
  • Advanced Practice Providers (Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants)

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Implement current AUA NMIBC practice guidelines into the office setting.
  2. Identify the best intravesical agent and duration of therapy for low, intermediate, and high-risk settings and what to do during a BCG shortage.
  3. Identify methods to treat significant toxicities from various intravesical therapies.
  4. Define high-risk scenarios that necessitate cystectomy and options for BCG-unresponsive disease.
  5. Discuss the scientific rationale for investigating immune oncology agents for BCG unresponsive disease and become familiar with current clinical trial designs.
