After successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Analyze clinical trial data on the efficacy and safety of current and emerging antagonists and inhibitors of androgen-receptor signaling in the treatment of nonmetastatic and hormone-sensitive metastatic prostate cancer
- Implement treatment strategies for metastatic prostate cancer that sequence these newer endocrine options earlier in the clinical course of prostate cancer
- Describe optimal approaches to manage treatment-related adverse events associated with hormonal therapeutic options for prostate cancer that can help maintain quality of life and adherence to treatment
