New and effective treatments for nonmetastatic (nmCRPC) and metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) are improving quality of life and survival for men with this common malignancy. Selection of treatment is contingent on safety and efficacy, patient factors and preferences, and potential adverse events. In this activity, an expert in prostate cancer provides guidance on selection of treatment pathways for three different patient presentations. The important role of shared decision making, including matching patient attributes with treatment side effect profiles, is also addressed to improve adherence to therapies and help optimize clinical outcomes.
