NCCN Guidelines® Insights - Prostate Cancer, Version 1.2023
The NCCN Guidelines for Prostate Cancer address staging and risk assessment after a prostate cancer diagnosis and include management options for localized, regional, recurrent, and metastatic disease. The NCCN Prostate Cancer Panel meets annually to reevaluate and update their recommendations based on new clinical data and input from within NCCN Member Institutions and from external entities. These NCCN Guidelines Insights summarizes much of the panel’s discussions for the 4.2022 and 1.2023 updates to the guidelines regarding systemic therapy for metastatic prostate cancer.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who manage patients with cancer.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Integrate into professional practice the updates to the NCCN Guidelines for Prostate Cancer
- Describe the rationale behind the decision-making process for developing the NCCN Guidelines for Prostate Cancer
NCCN Medical Education Disclosure Policy

Ineligible Company: An ineligible company is any entity whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.
Relevant Financial Relationships: Financial relationships of any dollar amount occurring within the past 24 months are defined as relevant if the educational content an individual can control is related to the business lines or products of an ineligible company. There is no minimum financial threshold. We ask for disclosure of ALL financial relationships with ineligible companies, regardless of the amount and regardless of the potential relevance of each relationship to the education.
All faculty for this continuing education activity are competent in the subject matter and qualified by experience, training, and/or preparation for the tasks and methods of delivery.
