Location: MCC WEST, 2002

This course will review the 2015 update to the 2013 AUA guidelines on castration-resistant prostate cancer. Faculty will explore the rigorous process used in the development of these evidence-based guidelines, as well as discuss new developments and future research needs for this topic. The course will showcase clinical scenarios in urological practice and the correct application of the new AUA guidelines in those instances. This course will be a benefit to practicing urologists, non-physician providers, residents preparing for their certification exam and physicians preparing for their re-certification exam.
