Educated Patient® Prostate Cancer Summit

CURE®'s Educated Patient® Prostate Cancer Summit is a half-day virtual event seeking to educate, inform and challenge the thinking of patients with prostate cancer. The program is designed to represent every demographic of patient and all stages of cancer, as well as patients, caregivers and advocates.

The optimal care of patients with prostate cancer is rapidly changing as a result of advances in all aspects of patient care, including diagnosis, treatment options and long-term effects. There is an increased focus on providing multidisciplinary care for patients with complex diseases, such as prostate cancer, with integrated teams of professionals representing the relevant treatment modalities, including surgery, radiation therapy and systemic medical interventions. This summit will also take a look at the future of prostate cancer care and discuss what’s on the horizon.
