The treatment of advanced prostate cancer has changed significantly in recent years, from the introduction of chemotherapy and androgen inhibitors to the metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (HSPC) setting, to the recognition of non-metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (nmCRPC) as a disease state with multiple effective treatment options. However, the biggest change to how patients with prostate cancer are managed has come in the past year with the COVID-19 pandemic. Because patients with cancer are at increased risk of complications due to COVID-19 infection, their care must be prudently managed during this time. While delaying prostate cancer treatment is an option for some patients, telemedicine has emerged as a potential alternative to in-person care that reduces risk of Sars-CoV-2 transmission while maintaining standards and quality of care while patients wait for access to vaccines.
Managing Advanced Prostate Cancer in the COVID-19 Era: What Do Oncologists Need to Know? Will provide oncologists with the most up-to-date evidence-based information and expert guidance on selecting and sequencing therapies in advanced prostate cancer and managing patient care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
