This program increases awareness of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) as a mainstay of treating patients with metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC) and leads to new opportunities to improve patient care. Recent developments create a need for a greater understanding of practice-changing clinical trial data and guideline recommendations to treat patients with mHSPC.
This program provides information on the most effective implementation of androgen receptor inhibitors (ARIs) to change the disease trajectory for mHSPC. In addition, this education addresses both the challenges of and the need for an interdisciplinary care model that includes oncology pharmacists and nurses who provide patient support and education. Effective interdisciplinary care improves adherence management of adverse effects (AEs) and helps reduce the barriers to access, care, and treatment that contribute to racial and ethnic disparities in prostate cancer treatment. Finally, a patient education solution completes the curriculum, providing clinician-developed videos tethered to and accessible via the HCP education to answer questions frequently faced by patients with prostate cancer.
Video education created for patients is available for this topic. Visit www.mymededge.com to “prescribe” education that helps patients and caregivers learn more about this condition.
