New in CME Courses: Delivering Advanced Prostate Cancer Therapy in a Virtual Urology Clinic

Target audience:  Urologists, advanced practice nurses, and others working in urology clinics

Experience managing prostate cancer patients in a virtual urology practice Challenge questions, management approaches, and peer benchmarking included.

Until 2010, urologists generally limited their care of patients with prostate cancer to surgical interventions, radiation therapy, and androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). Chemotherapy, when indicated, was delivered by oncologists, who typically continued to manage the patient from referral until death.

The approval of multiple non-chemotherapeutic medications for advanced prostate cancer (APC) now allows urologists to consider expanding their practices to include oral and infusion-based therapies. A trend toward the development of APC clinics within urology practices allows urologists to maintain continuity of care for patients who may have been in their practice for decades, following them from diagnosis to death. Starting an APC clinic has advantages for patients, who continue their long-term relationship with providers, and urologists, who maintain these patients within their practice and foster value-based care for APC treatment.

This unique educational program envisions a virtual urology practice as it develops an APC clinic and overcomes challenges in the medical management of APC. In this second activity in the educational program, we will see how changes implemented in the first activity have progressed, and how the clinic attempts further progress. Also, leading urologists with expertise in APC will review available treatment options and discuss their use in real-world case studies.
