Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) Educational Program
The Prostate Centre is proud to be offering the Androgen Deprivation Therapy Educational Program starting this February 2015. This will be a free educational program offered to any prostate cancer patient and their partner that are starting or are currently on hormone therapy. The program utilizes the recently published book “Androgen Deprivation Therapy: An Essential Guide for Prostate Cancer Patients and their Loved Ones”. The book includes not just information about ADT, but specific exercises to help readers deal with both the physical and psychological side effects of this treatment.
What does the program entail?
Patients and partners participating in this program will receive a free copy of “Androgen Deprivation Therapy: An Essential Guide for Prostate Cancer Patients and their Loved Ones”. Participants will be invited to attend an introductory 1.5-hour group educational seminar, introducing the book, common side-effects, and helpful management strategies. Two to three months later, we will arrange for a 1-hour group follow-up session to discuss any questions that participants might have about the book’s content and ADT. These educational group sessions are held monthly at The Prostate Centre, Suite 100-1900 Richmond Road, Victoria, BC.
If you are interested or have more questions surrounding the program please contact Shawn at (250)388-0214 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
