This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of medical and radiation oncologists, urologists and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of prostate cancer (PC).
OVERVIEW OF ACTIVITY
Cancers of the genitourinary (GU) system affect hundreds of thousands of individuals in the United States each year and account for more than one fourth of all new cancer diagnoses. Of this diverse array of distinct diseases, tumors of the prostate are among the most prevalent and thus the topic of extensive ongoing clinical research. Consequently, the clinical management of both early and more advanced presentations of prostate cancer is constantly evolving, necessitating rapid and consistent access to learning opportunities for clinicians who care for these patients. This CME program was developed from the proceedings of a satellite symposium held during the 2019 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium. It provides the perspectives and experiences of prostate cancer experts to facilitate a better understanding of new management strategies and lingering clinical controversies facing the GU cancer community.
This activity will help medical oncologists and other allied healthcare professionals to find answers to the individualized questions and concerns they frequently encounter and to in turn provide high-quality cancer care.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Penn State College of Medicine and Research To Practice. Penn State College of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
