In 2020, approximately 3.3 million men were living with prostate cancer in the United States.1 Screening recommendations, risk classification, and treatment approaches are constantly evolving, and more than ever before guidelines emphasize shared decision-making and quality of life. It is therefore imperative that pharmacists have the knowledge and tools to help patients navigate screening and treatment choices. Pharmacists are perfectly positioned to discuss the benefits and risks of prevention strategies, review screening recommendations, and present treatment approaches including active surveillance and pharmacologic options.
