This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive 7.25 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.
This one-day symposium will update participants on recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with localized and advanced prostate cancer. Expert faculty will deliver state-of-the-art lectures that will include treatment approaches, clinical trials, biologic and genomic factors and future directions. Attendees will have ample time to network with leaders in the field, participate in panel discussions and navigate complicated cases. Key clinical topics will include the use of biomarkers and modern imaging technologies in the management of early stage prostate cancer as well as advances in the multidisciplinary approach to patients with high-risk, locally advanced, relapsed non-metastatic, and metastatic prostate cancer. Applications of new therapeutic agents, cutting edge radiation technology, combined modality strategies and evolving minimally invasive urologic surgical approaches will also be discussed. In addition, recommendations on resources for patients and practicing healthcare providers will be shared including specialized centers of excellence and research, advocacy and special organizational resources in the region. Ample time will be provided during and between sessions for Q & A and meeting with speakers and experts.
