Statement of Need

Biochemically recurrent (BCR) prostate cancer is an increasingly common disease state that has led to increased use of radical prostatectomy for the treatment of high-risk localized disease. Adjuvant radiotherapy (RT) is an underutilized treatment with a better survival advantage, and the American Urological Association, the American Society for Radiation Oncology, and the American Society of Clinical Oncology have expressed support for adjuvant RT. Treatment decisions should be made based on life expectancy, comorbidities, tumor characteristics, and patient preferences.

This CME Outfitters podcast will focus on how clinicians can individualize treatment decisions, based on the use of risk assessment algorithms and advanced imaging techniques with greater ability to detect the sites and extent of disease at BCR. These tools have already demonstrated the ability to change treatment decisions and will substantially impact the management of patients with BCR after radical prostatectomy.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CME/CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Stratify patients with early prostate cancer for risk of progression, based on pathological, molecular, and clinical findings.
  • Identify optimal treatment strategies in the management of patients with prostate cancer experiencing BCR.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Describe how to stratify patients with early prostate cancer for risk of progression, based on pathological, molecular, and clinical findings.
  • Identify optimal treatment strategies in the management of patients with prostate cancer experiencing BCR.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Astellas and Pfizer, Inc.

Target Audience

Urologists, medical oncologists, PAs, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists
