Advanced Prostate Cancer Webcast (2016): Session I: Guidelines and Treatment Strategies


Urologists continue to indicate one of the greatest educational needs in treating CRPC patients is the sequencing of agents. With the numerous new treatments now available to urologists to manage the CRPC patient, sequencing and managing the side effects of each treatment have become increasingly important. In order for urologists' role in managing CRPC patients to continue to increase, knowledge of the various side effects of the numerous treatments that are available is paramount.

This course will provide essential information on Advanced Prostate Cancer, focusing upon a thorough review of the AUA CRPC Guidelines, followed by sequencing of agents, managing side effects of treatments, management of comorbid conditions, and identifying potential interactions between immunosuppressive agents and other medications. Additionally, the course will include a section on pain management and training on counseling/support of patients in end-of-life issues.

Target Audience

  • APN/PA
  • Non-Urologist MD
