Program Description

Recommended treatment options for prostate cancer vary based on disease severity and life expectancy, with traditional approaches including active surveillance, surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). Prostate cancer that progresses despite ADT is known as castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). Until recently, the standard of care for CRPC patients was chemotherapy consisting of docetaxel plus prednisone, and median survival was approximately 19 months. Recent FDA approvals have made several powerful, new, life-extending agents available to patients. The current lack of clinical trial evidence regarding the best sequencing of these novel agents means that patient needs and preferences play an important role in treatment selection. This activity will discuss the optimal, evidence-based treatment of patients with advanced prostate cancer, addressing current practice guidelines, shared decision making, and promising clinical trials.

Program Developer/Facilitator

Presented by the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in collaboration with MCM Education.

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

  1. Summarize recent updates to clinical practice guidelines that reflect significant changes in best practices in the management of advanced prostate cancer.
  2. Develop evidence-based first- and second-line treatment options for patients with advanced prostate cancer.
  3. Apply best practices for patient communication and shared decision making to identify and respond to patient information needs and elicit patient preferences when selecting therapies for men with advanced prostate cancer.
  4. Recall current data about the most promising investigational therapies for metastatic prostate cancer.
