Monthly Oncology Tumor Boards: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Individualized Patient Care - Metastatic Prostate Cancer

May 26, 2017

Join Sandy Srinivas, MD and Alexey Aleshin, MD, MBA from Stanford Cancer Institute as they present their expertise on a range of cases pertaining to metastatic prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and second-leading cause of cancer death in men. Many therapeutic options exist for patients with metastatic prostate cancer. Clinicians need to be knowledgeable about all of the options to be able to effectively evaluate their appropriateness for each patient and discuss the possible risks and benefits with patients. Such knowledge allows for informed, shared decision making, which can enable patients to receive optimal care that maximizes their survival while taking into account their values and preferences.

Target Audience

This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, pathologists, nurses, pharmacists, case managers, and other health care professionals who manage patients with cancer.
