Individualizing Prostate Cancer Treatment: Special Considerations for Gay and Bisexual Men

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This activity features a panel consisting of an oncologist and leading experts (a urologist and a researcher) in prostate cancer care considerations in gay and bisexual men (GBM), where they discuss quality of life considerations and disparities. The panel’s aim is to provide clinicians with real-world strategies to facilitate optimal communication and shared decision-making with these patients. This initiative provides the latest epidemiological and clinical data, controversies, and evolving treatment practices to improve patient-reported outcomes. Additionally, a gay patient shares his prostate cancer story and perspectives to better illustrate and help address the unmet needs that exist among the GBM population. Clinicians need to be aware of available resources as this minority population is often not focused on in medical education.

This initiative involves a panel discussion where an expert oncologist serves as a moderator and engages with a leading researcher and urologist on new opportunities to improve outcomes for gay and bisexual men (GBM) with prostate cancer. In addition to the clinical faculty, a gay patient will provide a first-hand testimonial of his prostate cancer treatment experience to better illustrate and personalize the unmet needs. Upon completing this initiative, clinicians will be able to indicate the most recent evidence with sexual disparities in prostate cancer management, evaluate patient-centered tactics to use when choosing therapies for prostate cancer in GBM, and outline the sexual function and sexual bother adverse events the various agents in the prostate cancer armamentarium.
