The 8th Annual Interdisciplinary Prostate Cancer Congress® and Other Genitourinary Malignancies
is a one-day educational meeting that brings together the top experts from key specialties involved in the care of patients with prostate cancer to discuss state-of-the-art treatments and current guidelines, debate controversies and clinical challenges, and review recent trial data and emerging therapeutic approaches with the potential to impact clinical practice.
Today, the interdisciplinary care of prostate cancer has become a reality, and urologists along with radiation, surgical, and medical oncologists are all involved in the management of these patients. In order to provide optimal care, it is essential that all members of the treatment team stay up-to-date on current trends and emerging data, not just in their own area, but also in the related specialties. The Interdisciplinary Prostate Cancer Congress® and Other Genitourinary Malignancies
provides an opportunity for clinicians to receive concise didactic updates on best practices and investigational strategies in each of these topical areas, accompanied by practical case discussions moderated by an expert panel in a multidisciplinary tumor board-like environment.
This educational activity is directed toward medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, and urologists involved in the treatment and management of patients with prostate cancer. Fellows, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of prostate cancer may also participate.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better prepared to:
Review evidence-based strategies for the care of patients with multiple lines of therapy, including monotherapy, combinations, or sequencing of therapies
Choose appropriate genomic tests to guide treatment decisions
Evaluate emerging clinical data regarding new agents and evolving strategies
