Genetic Testing in Prostate Cancer: Considerations for Urologists and Their Patients Webinar (2020)

AUA - American Urological Association
8/20/20, 5:30 PM
America/New York GMT -4 summer

Description

Over the last several years, there has been a dramatic increase in our understanding of the role of genetic testing in prostate cancer. Urologists are suddenly being confronted with new information surrounding screening guidelines for men at high genetic risk of prostate cancer, genetic testing in men with both localized and metastatic prostate cancer, and the impact on treatment decisions in men with prostate cancer and inherited DNA damage repair gene mutations.

 

To increase urologists understanding related to the newest treatment options for prostate cancer, the featured 60-minute panel discussion led by experts in their field, will explore how to translate the latest scientific advances into routine clinical practice, improving the care of patients who are at a markedly-elevated risk of progressions and death from prostate cancer.

 

The Genetic Testing in Prostate Cancer: Considerations for Urologists and their Patients Webinar will be recorded and available in webcast format on AUAUniversity and AUA’s YouTube channel. Additionally, the content will be released as an episode on AUA’s podcast. Learners will also be provided with links to access a patient and caregiver video and fact sheet produced by the Urology Care Foundation to increase patient understanding of genetic testing as it relates to prostate cancer, and facilitate enhanced patient – physician communications in regards to treatment options.
