What´s New in Prostate Cancer? Practical Information on Contemporary Issues
Supported by an educational grant from
This course is designed to provide the practitioner an update of the latest findings in prostate cancer prevention, screening and treatment. Special emphasis will be placed on classifying localized disease into risk categories, along with a discussion of applicable treatments. Novel approaches to high stage and relapsing disease will also be reviewed.
Objectives: After attending this course, the participants should be able to:
interpret the latest data on prevention of prostate cancer
describe strengths and limitations of PSA-based early detection of prostate cancer and of new screening markers and biopsy approaches
identify high-risk localized prostate cancer and describe different treatment approaches for these patients
integrate minimally-invasive approaches to early stage cancer including laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, cryoablation and brachytherapy into practice
In approximately 30 days the AUA will be conducting a follow-up survey in conjunction with Outcomes, Inc. to assess the impact of this educational activity on your practice. Your participation in this short follow-up survey will help us develop future CME programming to meet your needs. An incentive will be provided for your time and participation.
