Purpose: Audio-Digest Foundation CME/CE activities are designed to provide its learners – physicians and other healthcare professionals – with continuing education that will help identify clinical problems in their practice settings, provide content to help to solve those problems, and increase their application of knowledge to practice.

Audio-Digest Urology is specifically designed to provide the participant with state-of-the-art information, including, but not limited to, the diagnosis and management of:

Benign prostatic hyperplasia
Bladder cancer
Prostate cancer
Renal cancer
Impotence and infertility
Female stress urinary incontinence
Calculus disease
Interstitial cystitis
Pediatric urologic problems
Penile malformations
Reflux disease

The goal of this program is to improve the detection and management of prostate cancer. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1: Choose the appropriate radiation modality or combination of modalities to treat patients with prostate cancer at various levels of risk.

2: Select the optimal dose of radiation therapy to be used for primary and adjuvant therapy.

3: Describe the relationship between the biologically effective dose of radiation and long-term outcomes.

4: Evaluate the data emerging from trials of screening for prostate cancer as they relate to reduction in death rates and numbers needed to treat.

5: Identify patients with prostate cancer who are candidates for active surveillance and conduct active surveillance programs.
