Topics for Discussion

  • Module 1: Optimal Integration of Novel Antiandrogens into the Management of Nonmetastatic Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC)
  • Module 2: Recognizing and Managing the Side Effects of Hormonal Agents Used in the Management of PC
  • Module 3: Current and Emerging Strategies in the Management of Metastatic Hormone-Sensitive PC
  • Module 4: Current and Evolving Treatment Paradigms in Metastatic CRPC

Target Audience
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of oncology nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists involved in the treatment of prostate cancer.

Learning Objectives and Goals
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Apply existing and emerging research data to the therapeutic and supportive care of patients with early and advanced prostate cancer (PC).
  • Evaluate the published research database supporting the recent FDA approvals of secondary hormonal agents in the management of nonmetastatic castration-resistant PC, and apply this information in the discussion of nonresearch treatment options with patients.
  • Counsel patients with hormone-sensitive metastatic PC about the use of cytotoxic and secondary hormonal therapy to ensure appropriate and informed shared decision-making.
  • Recognize how prior therapeutic exposure and patient and disease characteristics may affect the selection and sequencing of available systemic treatments for castration-resistant metastatic PC.
  • Describe the rationale for testing patients with metastatic PC for BRCA1/2 mutations and other related DNA damage repair pathway deficiencies, and advise individuals found to harbor these genetic abnormalities about available clinical trial data documenting the efficacy of PARP inhibition.
  • Educate patients about the side effects associated with approved therapies commonly employed in the management of advanced PC, and provide preventive strategies to reduce or ameliorate these toxicities.
  • Identify opportunities to enhance the collaborative role of oncology nurses in the comprehensive biopsychosocial care of patients with PC to optimize clinical and quality-of-life outcomes.
