Support & survivorship

Prostate cancer essentials: Information and support

This module highlights the importance of providing high quality information and support to both men with prostate cancer and their partners/family.

It uses examples from the UK but also internationally. The key issues faced by men and their families affected by prostate cancer are not UK specific. Much of the work being undertaken to improve the information and support we provide, seeks to address, and focuses on, similar themes and areas of practice.

When you have completed this module, you will:

⦁ Be able to identify the key aspects of supportive care;
⦁ Be able to describe the key principles of survivorship care;
⦁ Understand the importance of providing information and support for men, their family and carers affected by prostate cancer;
⦁ Be able to identify and discuss the ways in which information and support may be provided.
