In advanced or metastatic urothelial carcinoma (UC) a heavily cytotoxic “sledgehammer” approach has traditionally been used. Platinum-based chemotherapy is still the preferred first-line approach. But this non-specific cytotoxic treatment is often intolerable for the typically older UC patient.
Until recently, there were no second-line options beyond the chemotherapeutic sledgehammer. Today, treatments with more selective mechanisms of action take advantage of fresh translational insights into UC.
These novel therapeutics offer more efficient targeting for patients who have run out of options. But for clinicians, the introduction of these agents complicates an already complex condition. This activity will guide them in selecting and using these options.
In this case-based activity you will navigate a simulated patient case, making clinical decisions when prompted. Feedback regarding your decisions will be provided as you move through the case.
This educational initiative has been designed for genitourinary oncologists, medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiologists, urologists, nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), clinical nurse specialists (CNSs), advanced practice nurses (APNs), oncology clinical nurses (OCNs), and clinical oncology pharmacists (BCOPs) involved in the care and coordination of patients with urothelial carcinoma (UC).
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
