Target Audience

This educational initiative has been designed for genitourinary oncologists, medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiologists, urologists, nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), clinical nurse specialists (CNSs), advanced practice nurses (APNs), oncology clinical nurses (OCNs), and clinical oncology pharmacists (BCOPs) involved in the care and coordination of patients with urothelial carcinoma (UC).

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Articulate the mechanisms of action of targeted biopharmacologics and immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) used in the treatment of UC
  • Outline efficacy and safety findings from key clinical trials of approved and investigational novel treatments developed for the treatment of advanced or metastatic UC (mUC)

Statement of Educational Need

In advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (UC) a heavily cytotoxic “sledgehammer” approach has traditionally been used. Platinum-based chemotherapy is still the preferred first-line approach. But this non-specific cytotoxic treatment is often intolerable for the typically older UC patient.

Until recently, there were no second-line options beyond the chemotherapeutic sledgehammer. Today, treatments with more selective mechanisms of action take advantage of fresh translational insights into UC.

These novel therapeutics offer more efficient targeting for patients who have run out of options. But for clinicians, the introduction of these agents complicates an already complex condition. This activity will guide them in selecting and using these options.

In this case-based activity you will navigate a simulated patient case, making clinical decisions when prompted. Feedback regarding your decisions will be provided as you move through the case.

Target Audience

This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of urologists, and oncologists, as well as nurses, NPs, PAs, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with prostate cancer.

Learning Objectives

After completing this program, participants should be able to:

  • Evaluate the latest clinical data on efficacy, safety, and sequencing considerations for hormonal, cytotoxic, immunologic, targeted, bone-directed, and investigational therapies for patients with HSPC and CRPC
  • Identify ongoing and planned clinical trials for prostate cancer patients across the disease continuum and refer appropriate patients to trials with novel therapies or in combination
  • Implement the latest best-practice treatment strategies for patients with HSPC and CRPC, taking into consideration current guidelines and expert recommendations when individualizing treatment plans

Activity Description

This educational activity is designed to provide the oncology care team with the latest developments and critical insights into the management of prostate cancer. This education will support the healthcare professional in his/her practice setting with the essential tools to critically evaluate efficacy, safety, clinical effectiveness and application.

Statement of Educational Need

Taking into consideration the continued evolution of therapeutic modalities and management strategies for prostate cancer along with the information burden placed on busy healthcare professionals, expert guidance and interpretation of the clinical significance of emerging clinical data will benefit those caring for patients with prostate cancer, allowing for ease of assessment and incorporation into clinical practice.
