Course Description
 

This conference was developed to update physicians and other health professionals regarding recent developments and advanced research in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer, bladder cancer, and kidney cancer. Experts will also provide search techniques to find useful evidence-based treatment options in the areas of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.

 



Target Audience
 

The program is designed for urologists, medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists, pathologists, and other physicians and nurses interested in the management of patients with genito-urinary cancer.

 



Objectives
 

As a result of participating in this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Search for evidence-based literature to answer clinical questions.
  • Determine the indications for screening for prostate cancer.
  • Discuss complementary medicine options with their patients.
  • Recognize and prescribe the proper imaging tests to stage specific patients with prostate cancer.
  • Discuss all of the different treatment options available (surgery, radiation therapy, cryosurgery, HIFU and active surveillance) so the patient can make an informed decision about his/her care.
  • Get updates on new modalities of treatment for prostate cancer.
  • Recognize indications for intra-vesicle therapy for bladder cancer.
  • Choose which of the three types of urinary diversion to use on patient.
  • Recognize indications for neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy and know when to use them.
  • Recognize indications for partial nephrectomy.
  • Recognize indications for ablative procedures in kidney cancer.
  • Gain knowledge of newer targeted therapies for metastatic kidney cancer.
