OBJECTIVE: This study aims to provide an overview of current treatment guidelines within the context of metastatic bladder cancer illustrated by a case report.

DATA SOURCES: International guidelines from The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), The European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO), and scientific references supporting these clinical guidelines. To illustrate the implementation of current evidence-based guidelines a patient case report was presented.

CONCLUSION: Historically, there have been limited treatment options available for metastatic bladder cancer for three decades. However, with the introduction of immunotherapy and emergent targeted therapies for metastatic bladder cancer increasing survival rates are expected.

IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE: To achieve improved treatment outcome in people affected by metastatic bladder cancer it is important that both doctors and nurses are aware of contemporary evidence-based treatment options in keeping with ESMO and ASCO international clinical guidelines. Nurses play an important role in educating patients about the potential side effects of therapy and in offering timely, tailored, and supported self-management.
