2021 Department of Supportive Care Medicine Grand Rounds | Managing the Psychiatric and Psychological Aspects of Prostate Cancer

Duarte, CA US
August 24, 2021

Most oncology practices do not have the resources for dedicated psychiatric consultants familiar with psycho-oncology; thus emotional stress related to the cancer diagnosis and treatment is often unrecognized and untreated.  Improvement in this aspect of care for men with prostate cancer can enhance adherence to challenging treatment regimens that may impact energy, sexuality, and overall well-being.  

Depression, anxiety and other quality of life challenges are common in people with cancer, though few oncology practices have dedicated psychiatric consultants familiar with the nuances of psycho-oncology. This talk intends to bridge this gap in specialized care to facilitate the improved diagnosis and treatment of emotional distress in men with prostate cancer, and their families.
 

Target Audience

Patient care providers- both prescribing and non-prescribing clinicians.

Learning Objectives

  • Outline the psychiatric and psychological needs of men with prostate cancer while receiving cancer care.
  • Identify diagnostic and clinical pearls geared towards medical providers to better assess symptoms and comorbidities of men with prostate cancer. 
  • Discuss the interaction of physical and emotional distress in men with prostate cancer and recognize ways to integrate this care into a busy cancer practice.
  • Outline the various types of cultural diversities (gender, age, race, religion, culture, etc.) that relate to demographics, diagnosis and treatment.
