Prostate cancer is the most diagnosed non-cutaneous cancer in men in
the US and remains the second leading cause of cancer deaths among
American men, with an estimated 174,000 new cases diagnosed in 2020.
Prostate cancer deaths are typically the result of
castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), and most patients will
eventually experience disease progression despite castration, with a
median duration of response of 12–24 months. Fortunately for these
patients, novel therapies have changed the treatment paradigm, as
recent data has shown that newer options, including PARP inhibitors,
greatly improves outcomes. outcomes.
Upon completion of this
activity, participants will be able to:
Examine challenges to patient
adherence, administration and quality of life in the management
of prostate cancer
Discuss strategies to implement PARP
inhibitors into the treatment paradigm, especially as it relates
to patient adherence and quality of life
Define strategies for anticipating,
recognizing, and managing adverse events of PARP inhibitor
therapy in patients with prostate cancer
Explore the role of PARP inhibitors
in the management of prostate cancer
