Metastatic Prostate Cancer

This course gives clinicians a complete view on clinical aspects, diagnosis and treatments of castrate-sensitive and castrate-resistant metastatic prostate cancer (mPCa). This e-learning course offers an overview on the state-of-the-art of the clinical diagnosis and treatment of mPCa. This course is divided in 2 modules that show an in-depth approach to both cases castrate-sensitive and castrate-resistant prostate cancer and their treatments.

This course has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) for 4 European CME credits (ECMEC). Learners can download their CME certificate after completing the course.

The development of this course has been supported by Jansen and Ipsen with a concession of an unrestricted educational grant.
