This course will provide a practical, evidence-based approach for the management of everyday problems in the management of prostate cancer, using a case-based approach with examples from real practice. Cases will illustrate contemporary management of early and late stage disease with emphasis on how new molecular diagnostic and prognostic tests (PCA3, MDx Confirm, Mitomics, Prolaris, Oncotype Dx Prostate, Decipher, and others) can be used for improved clinical decision making in screening, decisions on initial biopsy and rebiopsy, choosing and following men for active surveillance, and managing PSA failures. In addition, best practice use of newer agents for management of castrate-resistant disease will be reviewed, including the potential for use of targeted therapies based on genomic analysis of advanced tumors. The course will be of interest to individuals at all levels of clinical experience.
