5th Annual Interdisciplinary Prostate Cancer Congress™

5th Annual Interdisciplinary Prostate Cancer Congress™

Intercontinental New York Barclay
New York, NY
March 31, 2012

Conference Overview
Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men, affecting 1 out of every 6 men in the United States. Each year, it is diagnosed in 234,460 men and approximately 27,000 die as a result. Fortunately, continued progress has been made in the treatment of prostate cancer over the past 5 years, and improvements in both strategies and available therapeutic agents have increased survival rates for patients with prostate cancer.

Physicians’ Education Resource®, LLC (PER®) will host its Fifth Annual Interdisciplinary Prostate Cancer Congress (IPCC) at the New York Marriott East Side in New York City. This full-day continuing medical education (CME) activity entitled Novel Perspectives – Evolving Therapies and Advances In Standard of Care will address the differences that currently exist between urologists’, medical oncologists’, and radiation oncologists’ approaches to treating prostate cancer.

World-renowned thought leaders have been brought together to foster consensus about the best management of prostate cancer from the vantage point of interdisciplinary care teams. Topics of vital interest that will be include: hormonal therapies; imaging and staging; surgical advances; radiation therapies; and emerging multimodal therapies. The IPCC will include interactive cases designed to highlight multidisciplinary approaches for the management of prostate cancer with the overall goal of improving patient outcomes.

Target Audience
Urologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists who treat patients with prostate cancer.
