GUIDELINES

The European Association of Urology (EAU) has developed clinical guidelines which set out a framework for prostate cancer care across Europe.1 These guidelines outline universal principles of effective prostate cancer care.

As part of the LTPC Atlas we have reviewed each EU country's own clinical guidelines on prostate cancer, to compare how countries adhere - and in some cases go beyond - EAU guidelines.

In some cases, the story is positive - for example in 19 of 28 countries the national clinical guidelines recommend a care review by a multidisciplinary team (MDT).2 In other areas there is clearly more work to do, for example: only 10 countries provide patients with support from a specialist cancer nurse.3

National clinical guidelines make a meaningful difference to the care that people living with prostate cancer can expect to receive. We believe that all European countries should adopt the EAU guidelines as a minimum standard of care for prostate cancer patients.

A full table showing which countries implement which aspects of the EAU guidelines, as well as a detailed description of each guideline can be found here.

The guidelines make the following key recommendations:

Review by a multidisciplinary team

The guidelines recommend that treatment management decisions should be made after all treatments have been discussed in a multidisciplinary team (including urologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and radiologists), followed by a discussion with the patient. This will ensure that the right treatment plan is developed and informed by the expertise of the relevant specialities.

No of countries which include this in guidelines: 19 2

Support from a specialist nurse

Specialist nurses are key in supporting the patient through the care pathway. The EAU guidelines recommend that those affected should have access to nurse led multi-disciplinary rehabilitation (addressing sexual functioning, cancer worry, adjustments in the relationship, depression, managing bowel and urinary function problems).

No of countries which include this in guidelines: 10 3

Holistic needs assessment

The treatment and care plan should be tailored around the specific needs of the patient. The guidelines recommend that that the treatment plan should be tailored around the patient’s quality of life needs, including lifestyle changes, weight control, toilet habits, sexuality, and psychological problems.

No of countries which include this in guidelines: 12 4

A tailored treatment plan

There are a variety of treatment options for prostate cancer. It is therefore important that those affected get the right treatment at the right time. The guidelines recommend that a tailored treatment is developed that takes into account the holistic needs assessment. The plan is developed through the review by the multidisciplinary team and in conversation with the patient.

No of countries which include this in guidelines: 18 5

Nutrition and exercise advice

Patients should be provided with advice explaining how lifestyle changes including diet and exercise can contribute to the successful outcome of the care and treatment plan. Preventive advice includes non-specific measures such as loss of weight, increased exercise, improved nutrition and smoking cessation.

No of countries which include this in guidelines: 11 6

Psychological support

Prostate cancer and its treatment can have varying impact on the life of those affected. It is important that men with prostate cancer receive emotional and psychological support to help them cope with the diagnosis and the impact of the disease and treatment on their quality of life.

No of countries which include this in guidelines: 11 7

Regular care reviews

Given the slow disease progression of prostate cancer, it is important that the chosen care and treatment plan is re-assessed within regular intervals to ensure that the patient is still receiving optimal treatment.

No of countries which include this in guidelines: 12 8
