The Evolving Landscape of Advanced Prostate Cancer Treatment: A Guidelines and Case-Based Discussion: A Virtual Course (2022)

September 19, 2022 to September 20, 2022

Presented by the AUA in partnership with the Society of Urologic Oncology (SUO).

SUO strongly encourages that fellows participate in at least one SUO-sponsored educational course as available during their fellowship in addition to attending the Annual/Winter Meeting and the AUA/Spring Meeting. This educational course satisfies this recommendation.

Complimentary CME Course! 

Monday, September 19 - Tuesday, September 20, 2022 | 4 - 7 p.m. Eastern Time

Join Course Directors, Michael S. Cookson, MD, MMHC, FACS & David F. Jarrard, MD for an educational initiative in advanced prostate cancer.

As a direct result of the significant increase in multiple FDA-approved therapeutic agents for use in patients with advanced prostate cancer, clinicians are challenged with a multitude of treatment options and potential sequencing of these agents that, consequently, make clinical decision-making more complex. This activity will build upon the updated 2020 AUA Guidelines on Metastatic Hormone Sensitive Prostate Cancer (HSPC) and Castration-Resistant Prostate Cancer (CRPC). Topics will include the latest on Genetic Testing in Advanced Prostate Cancer and the Role of Immunotherapy and PARP Inhibitors. 

Designed for residents, fellows and APPs as well as urologists and other health care providers who care for patients with prostate cancer, this interactive forum will focus on the application of knowledge with case studies and small group discussion integrated throughout the day. A flipped classroom approach will be utilized. Register early to receive the Prework Library which will be available to all registered participants by August 2022. Participants will be expected to complete the Prework Library in advance of attending the live course - complete the prework on your own time, at your convenience. Then, come prepared on September 19-20 to actively engage with peers as you apply what you've learned.

Pre-registration is required as space is limited.

Needs assessment findings show strong support for continued development of courses and educational materials specifically targeted at residents and fellows that cover the medical management of advanced prostate cancer. This activity may also be of interest to urologists and other health care providers who care for patients with prostate cancer.

The Live Forum will cover the following topics*:

  • Identification of High Risk Disease and Initial Management of Biochemical Recurrence
  • Imaging of Advanced Prostate Cancer
  • M0 CRPC: Treatment Options and Goals of Therapy
  • Manipulating the Androgen Axis: New Agents in mHSPC and CRPC
  • Genetic Testing in Advanced Prostate Cancer
  • Bone Health and Radionuclide Therapy 
  • Role of Immunotherapy and PARP Inhibitors
  • Role of Chemotherapy, Treatment Sequencing in mCRPC and Future Directions

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:  


  1. Describe the natural course of advanced prostate cancer from non-metastatic (M0) to metastatic hormone-sensitive disease (mHSPC), with progression to the development of castration-resistant disease (CRPC).
  2. Describe the treatment options and outcomes for patients with biochemical recurrence after failed local therapy.
  3. Identify available imaging and indications for use including next generation PET imaging in the assessment of men with biochemical recurrence after failed local therapy.
  4. Describe the treatment options and outcomes for newly diagnosed mHSPC.
  5. Explain the implications of CRPC on the management of both M0 and M1.
  6. Discuss the molecular mechanisms and characterization of CRPC.
  7. Discuss the incorporation of genetic testing (both germline and somatic testing) into the management of men with high risk, metastatic prostate cancer and CRPC.


  1. Discuss specific recommendations within the AUA Clinical Practice Guidelines.
  2. Define M0 CRPC and the treatment options.
  3. Discuss clinically meaningful endpoints in clinical trials of patients with M0 CRPC.
  4. Describe gaps in the knowledge for treatment and sequencing of agents in the management of CRPC.
  5. Discuss challenges in incorporating AUA Guidelines and management of advanced mHSPC and CRPC into community practice.


  1. Identify approved androgen biosynthesis and receptor blockers for treatment of CRPC.
  2. Appraise the clinical use and efficacy of approved androgen-axis therapeutics for CRPC.
  3. Anticipate, manage and treat adverse events from therapeutic interventions directed at the androgen-axis used in the treatment of CRPC.
  4. Discuss new uses for androgen axis agents in M0 CRPC.


  1. Identify approved chemotherapeutics, immunotherapy and PARP Inhibitors for mCRPC.
  2. Describe indications and contraindications for chemotherapy, immunotherapy and PARP Inhibitors in patients with mCRPC.
  3. Identify co-morbid states and recognize their impact on treatment options for mCRPC.
  4. Identify germline and somatic mutations and implications for treatment in mCRPC including indications for PAPR Inhibitors and pembrolizumab.
  5. Discuss treatment sequencing in the advanced, metastatic and CRPC disease state.


  1. Integrate advances in bone health management into patient-specific care plans.
  2. Identify patients and prescribe radionuclide therapy in appropriate patients with symptomatic mCRPC.
  3. Discuss known adverse events associated with androgen biosynthesis inhibitors and radionuclide therapy.


  1. Assess and manage pain in patients with symptomatic mHSPC and mCRPC.
  2. Discuss the role of chemotherapy, performance status and pain management in patients with mCRPC.
  3. Review the role of palliative care and supportive services in the management of late stage CRPC.
