Members of the CARE™ Genitourinary Faculty recently attended the American Society of Clinical Oncology Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (ASCO GUCS 2018) on February 8th to 10th 2018 in San Francisco, California. 

The ASCO GUCS is a multi-day, scientific education symposium focused on the multidisciplinary needs of physicians and other members of the cancer care and research community who diagnose, treat, and study genitourinary (GU) malignancies. 

This issue of CARE™ Perspectives from ASCO GUCS provides updates on key news presented at the 2018 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium. Content is augmented with perspectives from Dr. Sebastien Hotte (McMaster University), as well as CARE™ urology and radiation oncology faculty who added new sequencing considerations to the CARE™ treatment algorithm for prostate cancer (PC). This algorithm is found at the end of this report. 

Although the symposium features coverage on the full spectrum of GU diseases, this report focuses on PC.
