  2. Differentiate among available and emerging treatment approaches for mHSPC and CRPC
  3. Formulate best-practice treatment strategies for mHSPC 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 managementof 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

In the past decade, the treatment landscape for advanced prostate cancer has changed dramatically with the introduction of various agents that have demonstrated a survival benefit. Several new agents have received FDA approval for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer, newly diagnosed metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC), novel endrocrine therapies that deprive or block prostate cancers from the effects of androgens, immunotherapeutic strategies that act to induce antitumor responses, new radiopharmaceuticals to target bony metastases, and novel chemotherapeutic agents. Many of these agents are currently in clinical trials to assess their applicability to different phases of the treatment paradigm in an effort to prolong survival while maintaining the patients’ quality of life.

The multitude of agents available for treating different prostate disease states and the rapid pace of new FDA approvals often confound clinical decision making. This educational activity aims to address these gaps in clinician knowledge to improve outcomes for patients with advanced prostate cancer.

Learning Objectives

After completing this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Explain the different treatment modalities for treating advanced and metastatic prostate cancer including hormonal, cytotoxic, immunologic, targeted, bone-directed, and investigational therapies
  2. Describe and implement the latest advances in the management of advanced prostate cancer across the disease continuum
  3. Personalize treatment decisions for patients with advanced and metastatic prostate cancer based on patient-specific factors, latest best-practice treatment strategies, recent clinical trial data, and expert recommendations

Activity Description

This educational activity is designed to provide the oncology care team with the latest developments and critical insights into the managementadvanced 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

With the exception of skin cancer, prostate cancer remains the most common cause of cancer in American men. The majority of patients diagnosed will seek treatment through surgery or radiation, and among those patients, approximately one-third will experience disease recurrence as indicated by elevated prostate specific antigen (PSA). Although androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) achieves temporary tumor control or regression in 90% of these individuals, most patients will ultimately progress to the advanced and/or fatal stage of malignancy, known as castrate-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), in which the disease spreads to the regional lymph nodes, seminal vesicles, and distant sites such as the bones.

In the past decade, the treatment landscape for advanced prostate cancer has changed dramatically with the introduction of various agents that have demonstrated a survival benefit. Many agents have received FDA approval for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer, including early taxanes, novel endocrine therapies that deprive or block prostate cancers from the effects of androgens, immunotherapeutic strategies that act to induce antitumor responses, new radiopharmaceuticals to target bony metastases, and novel targeted therapies.  These agents are currently in clinical trials to assess their applicability to different phases of the treatment paradigm, either alone or in combination, in an effort to prolong survival while maintaining the patients’ quality of life.  Other novel agents are in late-phase clinical development and are likely to enter the clinic in the near future.

As understanding of the underlying pathology of advanced prostate cancer is further elucidated, the importance of genetic testing (genomic and somatic) to identify biomarkers is playing an increasing role in risk assessment and treatment selection. However, many treatments lack definitive biomarkers and clinicians must rely on their understanding of current best-practice approaches to guide treatment selection for individual patients with advanced prostate cancer. Frequently updated guidelines, along with an increasing number of available agents and the rapid pace of new FDA approvals has challenged many busy clinicians in their ability to stay up to date with current best-practice treatment approaches, which in turn may negatively impact patient outcomes.

This activity aims to address these gaps in clinician knowledge to improve outcomes for patients with advanced and metastatic prostate cancer.

This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of hematologists/oncologists, community oncologists, oncology nurses and NPs, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with bladder cancer.

Learning Objectives

After completing this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the current immune checkpoint inhibitors and guidelines for their use in patients with locally advanced or metastatic UC 
  2. Select appropriate strategies for the early detection and management of immune-related adverse events 
  3. Evaluate the latest clinical data on emerging and recently approved targeted approaches for the treatment of advanced and metastatic UC, including FGFR inhibitors, antibody-drug conjugates, and gene therapy 
  4. Formulate informed treatment plans for patients with locally advanced or metastatic UC within the VHA/MHS/DoD healthcare system based on patient-specific factors, latest best-practice treatment strategies, recent clinical trial data, and expert recommendations 

Activity Description

This educational activity is designed to provide the oncology care team with the latest developments and critical insights into the management of bladder 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

Best practices for UC are changing rapidly as new data continually emerges. Within the last 5 years, treatment of advanced and metastatic UC has expanded beyond chemotherapy to include ICIs, molecular targeted agents (ie, FGFR inhibitors), and ADCs. To provide optimal patient care, clinicians must be prepared with a comprehensive understanding of the clinical utility of agents that could significantly impact patient outcomes. The rapidly expanding and evolving treatment landscape is challenging clinicians to stay abreast of latest advances. Lack of awareness regarding frequently updated guidelines, emerging clinical data, and optimal use of recently approved therapies may contribute to suboptimal care of patients with locally advanced and metastatic UC. Therefore, expert guidance in navigating the increasingly complicated treatment paradigm will benefit clinicians’ education, and ultimately improve outcomes for patients within the VHA/MHS/DoD healthcare system.

Many of these agents are currently in clinical trials to assess their applicability to different phases of the treatment paradigm in an effort to prolong survival while maintaining the patients’ quality of life.

The multitude of agents available for treating different prostate disease states and the rapid pace of new FDA approvals often confound clinical decision making. This educational activity aims to address these gaps in clinician knowledge to improve outcomes for patients with advanced prostate cancer.

Statement of Educational Need

In the past decade, the treatment landscape for advanced prostate cancer has changed dramatically with the introduction of various agents that have demonstrated a survival benefit. Several new agents have received FDA approval for the treatment of advanced prostate cancer, newly diagnosed metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC), novel endrocrine therapies that deprive or block prostate cancers from the effects of androgens, immunotherapeutic strategies that act to induce antitumor responses, new radiopharmaceuticals to target bony metastases, and novel chemotherapeutic agents. Many of these agents are currently in clinical trials to assess their applicability to different phases of the treatment paradigm in an effort to prolong survival while maintaining the patients’ quality of life.
