Advanced Prostate Cancer 2012 Video Panel: Understanding and Sequencing the Plethora of New Agents

Activity Description

This educational activity will allow participants to develop an understanding of the four new FDA approved agents as well as the existing standard therapies for advanced prostate cancer. Particular attention will be devoted to sequencing of the new agents and positioning the use of the new agents compared to the older existing therapies.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this activity, participants should be able to:

  • diagnose castrate resistent prostate cancer (CRPC) and have a working knowledge of treatments and the proper order to administer treatments in the new era
  • manage CRPC with sipuleucel-T by learning the proper candidates for this treatment (asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic) and be able to counsel patients on the pros and cons of this therapy in the context of other new agents
  • acquire comprehension of how to treat CRPC patients with abiraterone and understand its use, side-effect profile and pros and cons of use
  • comprehend the use of docetaxel and cabazitaxel systemic chemotherapy agents in the context of the multi-disciplinary setting whereby urologists work with medical oncologists to jointly manage patients
  • aquire new knowledge to understand skeletal related events (SRE's) in advanced prostate cancer patients with bone metastases and learn to manage patients using zolondronic acid and/or denosumab
