Molecular Characterization and Therapeutic Management of Prostate Cancer

May 8, 2021

The clinical management of metastatic prostate cancer is improving at a rapid pace, increasingly influenced by the advancement in molecular characterization of this disease. In particular, the identification of driver mutations and delineation of the molecular signatures of have resulted in significant improvements in the array of treatment options for this disease and improved individualization of prognosis. There are still uncertainties regarding the management of early prostate cancer. This meeting will provide an opportunity to hear from leading national and international experts on how recently published data may change practice, some of which will have immediate clinical applications. Furthermore, each session will have multiple segments on novel emerging treatment paradigms likely to transform the care of metastatic prostate cancer in the near future.

This virtual conference is intended to propagate new information to augment the knowledge and clinical competence of the cancer care providers in the following areas:

  • Advances in the identification of molecular driver mutations that impact prognosis for patients with Metastatic Castration Sensitive Prostate Cancer (mCSPC)
  • Use of molecular treatments in metastatic prostate cancer
  • Discussion of immediate versus delayed systemic therapy for patients with biochemical (PSA) failure after definitive, local treatment
  • Role of molecular imaging (PET based imaging) to clarify staging

Target Audience

  • Oncologists
  • Residents/Fellows
  • NPs/PAs
  • Pharmacists
  • Nurses

Registration fees: 

Registration is free for healthcare providers who are NOT employees of ACCME defined ineligible companies.

If you are a healthcare provider involved in patient care and are not an employee of an ineligible company, please proceed to registration and select "non-industry learner" and your fee will reset to $0.00.

An ineligible company is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing healthcare goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients with the exception of hospitals and facilities that provide direct care to patients. If you are an employee of an ineligible company, please select "industry representative" and pay the industry registration fee when registering for this conference. 

Any unpaid participation by industry professionals will be billed an additional $150 for a total of $356 per person. 

 

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the nuances of the data regarding optimal timing of initiation of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) for patients with biochemical failure
  • Review recent data on the use of genomic testing to define the prognosis of patients with mCSPC
  • Summarize genomic testing to select treatment for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer
  • Discuss the optimal use of molecular imaging tests
