Course Overview

Controversy surrounds every aspect of prostate cancer from screening to management. Should men be checking their PSAs? Should men get a prostate biopsy? Do they need treatment for prostate cancer and if so, what is the best treatment?

This conference will review landmark studies in prostate cancer and explain the rationale behind often conflicting recommendations made by national medical organizations. State-of-the-art management and treatments for both localized and metastatic disease will be described and instructive patient cases will be discussed in small groups led by experts. The course combines didactic lectures with small working groups to allow ample opportunity for discussion, questions and comments.

Target Audience

This educational activity is intended to meet the educational needs of practicing primary care physicians and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of male patients considering prostate cancer screening or management options for prostate cancer.
