25th International Prostate Cancer Update

Vail, CO US
January 21, 2015 to January 24, 2015

Patterns of care in prostate cancer (PCa) have changed tremendously in the past 25 years, altering the way patients with this tumor present and how they are evaluated before and after diagnosis. With the use of new and combined treatments, the frequency and variety of complications have differed from those previously reported. Advances have been made in PCa imaging, biopsy methodology, in understanding causative factors and disease, in treatment-related quality of life, and in predicting the behavior of individual tumors using risk strata. Despite these advances, no consensus has emerged regarding the optimal treatment for the most common patient with PCa.

This activity seeks to educate urologists and other healthcare professionals about the latest advances in the prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of PCa. The International Prostate Cancer Update (IPCU) educational planning committee has identified the educational gaps between recent research in PCa and its integration into professional practice at the international, national, and community levels.

Target Audience

This activity has been developed and is intended for urologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of prostate cancer.

Learning Objectives

This educational initiative aims to reach urologists, oncologists, urologic oncologists, and nurses. Upon completion of the conference, participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate the growing use of biomarkers in prostate cancer detection
  • Compare the use of various imaging and other advanced technologies in treating localized prostate cancer
  • Integrating available hormonal, cytotoxic and immunotherapeutic agents for advanced and castration-resistant prostate cancer
  • Assess the options for personalizing treatment and sequencing new therapies in individual patients
  • Define how the treatment of prostate cancer has evolved in the last 25 years
