Racial and ethnic disparities in prostate cancer are well documented. Compared with White males, Black males have a 1.5 times higher chance of developing prostate cancer and 2.2 times higher likelihood of death resulting from the disease. Gaps in early diagnosis, treatment options and access, survival rate, and more remain for racial and ethnic underserved populations. A culmination of biases, disparities, and inequities continues a cycle of inadequate oncological treatment for prostate cancer, thus resulting in delayed diagnosis and suboptimal clinical management, prognosis, and survival rate.
In this CME Outfitters BriefCase, a faculty expert will guide learners through a patient case scenario reflecting the impact of biases, disparities, and health inequities that reduce the quality of oncology care for racial and ethnic underserved patients with prostate cancer. This program will provide actionable strategies, empowering attendees to recognize factors and implement changes in practice to improve prostate cancer treatment.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Recognize the impact of health inequities on patients with prostate cancer and develop individual treatment strategies for optimal clinical outcomes.
Supported by an educational grant from the Johnson & Johnson Institute and the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies.
Physicians, PAs, NPs, nurses/nurse navigators, pharmacists, and dieticians specializing in oncology, pathology, radiology, or primary care.
