CUA Urology WebEx Series

The focus of this accredited WebEx series is on the care of prostate cancer patients, with discussion on the role of the urologist as well as other healthcare professionals. The webcasts would emphasize practical approaches, using the data from recent clinical trials only as a review and support tool, rather than a core part of the presentation. Each topic will be presented twice on each date in order to accommodate live viewing audiences across Canada’s time zones.
