Abstract

BACKGROUND: Docetaxel has emerged as a standard-of-care for metastatic hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC). Uptake of docetaxel for mHSPC in Australia has not previously been reported. AIMS: i) To investigate the real-world uptake of docetaxel in mHSPC; and ii) To identify predictors of utilisation of Docetaxel in mHSPC. METHODS: Men diagnosed from June 2014 to December 2018 and enrolled in the Prostate Cancer Outcomes Registry-Victoria (PCOR-Vic) were included. Data collected includes demographics, diagnosis method and institution, staging investigations, and treatments within 12 months of diagnosis.
