This activity is designed for urology residents, fellows, advanced practice providers, urologists and other health care providers who care for patients with prostate cancer.
There is a growing need for urologists to be able to effectively manage castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). The AUA recently released its 2017 report on the educational needs of urologists in the area of CRPC. 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 this area. Additionally, the findings indicate that the AUA should continue to develop courses and educational materials specifically targeted at residents that covers the medical management of advanced prostate cancer.
The AUA is launching an educational initiative to focus on resident and fellow training in the area of Advanced and Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC). Based on the documented need for additional education in this area, the AUA in collaboration with Society of Urologic Oncology (SUO) has developed multiple educational interventions to improve the ability to care for patients with CRPC. These educational activities may also be of interest to advanced practice providers and urologists.
The 2018 series is comprised of a variety of activities, including two live forums, four live webinars, webcasts and podcasts.
All activities are complimentary.
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 two dates and locations.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
