STATEMENT OF NEED
Prostate cancer is the most common tumor type affecting men in the United States, with an estimated 174,650 new cases reported each year. Typically, androgen deprivation therapy is administered for progressive disease. However, castration resistance or unresponsiveness to androgen deprivation therapy or to antiandrogens frequently develops over time. The transition from castration-sensitive to castration-resistant disease has yet to be understood and represents a significant unmet need. Nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) is a highly heterogeneous disease process with a dearth of effective treatment options. Metastatic CRPC is the primary cause of prostate-related mortality, accounting for an estimated 31,620 deaths annually. Median overall survival remains less than 2 years.
Oncologists, urologists, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, nurses, and other military health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients with CRPC.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

CME/CNE/CPE activities must be balanced, independent of commercial bias, and promote improvements or quality in health care. All recommendations involving clinical medicine must be based on evidence accepted within the medical profession.

i3 Health and USF Health will identify, review, and resolve all conflicts of interest that speakers, authors, or planners disclose prior to an educational activity being delivered to learners. Disclosure of a relationship is not intended to suggest or condone bias in any presentation but is made to provide participants with information that might be of potential importance to their evaluation of a presentation. i3 Health and USF Health do not endorse any products or services.
