Estimated time to complete: 1.0 hour
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the U.S.; in 2018, more than 3 million men were living with the disease. For men in whom prostate cancer is local or regional, 5-year survival approaches 100%. For those with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC), however, the 5-year survival rate is only 30%. Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) has long been a treatment mainstay for mHSPC but may be associated with cardiovascular (CV) risks. Recently, the ADT treatment paradigm for mHSPC was modified based on clinical trials demonstrating the effectiveness of docetaxel or abiraterone (with prednisone) in combination with ADT in improving survival in patients with mHSPC. Several other therapies combined with ADT are also available.
In this Virtual Practice, you will meet with two prostate cancer patients—reviewing medical records, assessing symptoms, ordering tests, and evaluating the risks and benefits of different therapeutic options as you develop a treatment plan with the best chance of optimizing outcomes.
Following each case presentation, you will have the opportunity to play Cranium Challenge, a rapid-fire categorization game that puts your clinical knowledge to the test.

This activity has been developed to meet the educational needs of urologists, medical oncologists, and other health care providers who treat patients with prostate cancer.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Weigh the benefits and CV risks associated with treatments when providing evidence-based care for patients with mHSPC
- Evaluate current and emerging data on treatment advances and appropriately incorporate into practice newer strategies for managing patients with mHSPC
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the University of Cincinnati and RedMedEd.
