Statement of Need:
Racial and ethnic disparities in prostate cancer are well documented. Compared with White males, Black males have a 1.5 times higher chance of developing prostate cancer and 2.2 times higher likelihood of death resulting from the disease. Gaps in early diagnosis, treatment options and access, and survival rate remain for racial and ethnic underserved populations. A culmination of biases, disparities, and inequities continues a cycle of inadequate oncological treatment for prostate cancer, thus resulting in delayed diagnosis and suboptimal clinical management, prognosis, and survival rate.
In this CME Outfitters podcast, expert faculty will review recent data and discuss the impact of biases, disparities, and health inequities that reduce the quality of oncology care for racial and ethnic underserved patients with prostate cancer. This program will set the stage for intervention, empowering attendees to recognize and consider factors to improve prostate cancer treatment.
At the end of this CME/CE activity, participants should be able to:
• Understand and acknowledge the influence of bias, disparities, and inequities on prostate cancer care.
