Practice Management of Metastatic Prostate Cancer

This new educational initiative focuses on Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC) Resident & Fellow Training. Based on the documented need for additional education in this area, the AUA has developed multiple educational interventions to improve the urology resident and fellow's ability to care for patients with CRPC. The CRPC Resident & Fellow Training initiative is comprised of a variety of unique activities, including:

Activity 1: Self-Assessment
Activity 2: Pre-requisite Activities
Activity 3: CRPC Live Forum for Urology Residents & Fellows (one-day forum offered five times across the country)
Activity 4: AUA Clinical Problem Solving (CPS) Protocol Online Activity
Activity 5: CRPC Patient Education Resources

The AUA recommends that you register for the course BEFORE making travel arrangements. Once the meeting capacity is reached, which may be prior to the early-bird date, the AUA is unable to guarantee a spot in the course.

Course Co-directors

Michael Cookson, MD, MMHC
David Jarrard, MD

Target Audience

The target audience will include residents and fellows.

Course Purpose

In 2015, the AUA released findings from a multi-year educational needs assessment with a focus on the treatment of Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC) for urologists. These findings show strong support for the AUA to influence key stakeholders in urology residency programs in order to increase the amount of exposure residents receive in the area of CRPC. Additionally, the findings indicate that the AUA should look into the feasibility of developing stand-alone courses and educational materials specifically targeted to residents that covers the medical management of advanced prostate cancer.

Based on this educational need, AUA is launching a new educational initiative to focus on CRPC Resident & Fellow training. Based on the documented need for additional education in this area, the AUA has developed multiple educational interventions to improve the urology resident and fellow's ability to care for patients with CRPC. The CRPC initiative is comprised of a variety of unique activities, including a self-assessment, pre-requisite work, a live forum and an online case-study activity. This activity will also provide each participant will access to patient education resources. The initiative will offer the live one-day forum five times to reach residents and fellows across the country.

This initiative will provide a foundation of knowledge on CRPC and the ability to apply this knowledge into practice to improve the outcomes of their patients. As residency programs differ in what is offered, we recommend that each participant in this initiative successfully complete all of the activities. If a resident successfully completes all activities, they will receive a Certificate of Participation which they may share with their Residency Program Director. 

Activity 1 – Self-Assessment

Learners are more engaged when they recognize their own knowledge gaps. An online self-assessment will both test current knowledge and provide immediate feedback. The CRPC self-assessment will be made available to all participants following their registration to the live forum on AUAUniversity. Participants will receive immediate feedback as they progress through the activity and will also receive a summary report which will identify their personal knowledge gaps.

Activity 2 – Pre-requisite Activities

Following the self-assessment and analysis of their results, but prior to the live forum, participants will be given access to online content to prepare them for the content which will be examined at the live forum. Free access will be provided on AUAUniversity once the participant has registered for a live forum and completed the self-assessment.

Activity 3 – CRPC Live Forum for Urology Residents & Fellows

As the capstone to this initiative, a live, interactive forum will be held for participants to engage with subject matter expects and mentors. For convenience, participants can choose from one of five dates and locations. Locations have been strategically selected based on the distribution of residents.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the natural course of prostate cancer from early to late stages, including the acquisition of castration resistant disease.
  • Explain the implications of castrate resistance on the management of prostate cancer.
  • Discuss specific recommendations within the AUA Clinical Practice Guidelines.
  • Construct a patient care plan using the AUA Clinical Practice Guidelines.
  • Identify recently approved therapeutics for CRPC.
  • Contrast the mechanisms of action of recently approved therapeutics for CRPC.
  • Appraise the clinical efficacy of recently approved therapeutics for CRPC.
  • Organize and order approved therapeutics for use in patients with CRPC.
  • Appraise immunosuppressive agents and other medications used in the treatment of CRPC for potential interactions.
  • Integrate advances in bone health management into patient-specific care plans.
  • Proactively manage side effects of medications used for the treatment of CRPC.
  • Identify, assess, and manage comorbid conditions often found in patients with CRPC.
  • Assess and manage pain in patients with CRPC.
  • Counsel patients on medication adherence.
  • Support patients at the end of the patients' life.

Activity 4 – AUA Clinical Problem Solving (CPS) Protocol Online Activity

The AUA Clinical Problem Solving (CPS) Protocol is a very successful online series that is hosted on AUAUniversity. The AUA is developing a new and specific CPS Protocol on CRPC specifically for residents and fellows to support and enhance the learning from the live forum. This activity will allow the participant to apply the information they have learned on CRPC and focus on the practice-based application of the CRPC Guidelines.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this CPS activity, the learner will be able to:

  1. Interpret and explain the appropriate diagnosis, prevention and treatment of the related guideline.
  2. Perform appropriate methods of evaluation and management according to the guideline.
  3. Analyze the risks and benefits for treatment according to the guideline.
  4. Integrate this AUA guideline into clinical practice.

Activity 5 – CRPC Patient Education Resources

To encourage and support the participant's care of their patients, this activity will provide links to Urology Care Foundation existing resources on CRPC. These resources will include patient videos and brochures.
