Online Continuing Education

The goal of this activity is to educate health care professionals about improving patient outcomes in metastatic prostate cancer.

Learning Objectives

*Communicate with patients and colleagues about the pathophysiology, risk factors, symptoms, and genetics of prostate cancer.

*Create individualized treatment plans for patients with prostate cancer based on current screening and staging guidelines and evidence for monotherapy, combination therapy, and sequencing of therapies.

*Evaluate data for the benefits and risks of current and evolving strategies in the treatment of metastatic prostate cancer.

Neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) cause generalized paralysis of skeletal muscles and prevent involuntary movement during surgical procedures. Often, residual paralysis remains postoperatively—a phenomenon known as residual neuromuscular blockade (RNMB)—and is associated with both short- and long-term morbidity. Despite the risks associated with RNMB, methods to reduce its occurrence through monitoring and reversal are not applied universally in clinical practice.

Educational Objectives

Recognize the prevalence and degree of morbidity and adverse events associated with RNMB in patients who have undergone general anesthesia for a surgical procedure.

Advocate for the consistent use of quantitative monitoring for RNMB.
Describe the appropriate use of NMBA reversal agents based on their mechanisms of action.
