Our free Living Well with Prostate Cancer Course in partnership with Maggie’s Edinburgh and Maggie’s Highlands has been specifically designed for men undergoing treatment for prostate cancer or when treatment has finished.

Registration for the next course in August is now open.  It is run by Maggie’s Edinburgh and is open to men across Scotland as it is online.  To register, please see contact details below.Quote from Andrew Anderson at Maggie's Edinburgh

What does the course cover?

We look at a range of topics including the practicalities of having prostate cancer and the side effects of treatment.  Whether you are experiencing fatigue, anxiety, urinary or erectile problems we’ll have experts on hand to talk through how to minimise your side effects. The course will also cover what you can do to live well, nutrition, exercise, the potential impact on your finances and relationships along with other topics!

You will meet others in a similar situation and hear from the experts.  The course runs over 7 weeks for 1.5hrs. At the moment the course is being held online but we hope to run it face-to-face when it’s safe to meet in groups again.  Men who have completed the course have commented that it has been really helpful to speak to others in a similar situation.

Men who took part in a previous course said they would recommend it to other men and that it was worthwhile. One participant commented “So many different experiences from the other participants and some invaluable advice from the experts”.  Another said “First class. Thank you.”COMPASS Edinburgh

Said Andrew Anderson, Centre Head, Maggie’s Edinburgh:  “Maggie’s is delighted to be partnering with Prostate Scotland. The individual support has been really well received and the courses have been a really important new initiative for men with prostate cancer. The feedback has been tremendous and we are keen to continue the courses for other men looking to understand how to manage side effects, plan for physical and emotional recovery and talk through important subjects such as sexual function and healthy eating after treatment. The groups have been such a valuable place for men to share their experiences and to be given guidance and support by our cancer support specialist Lisa Egan and the team.”

Registration for the next course in August and also one running in October, is now open.  To register, please see contact details.
