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’ll meet others in a similar situation too.
For how long does the course run?
The course runs over 6 weeks for 1.5 hours and is free of charge. Men who have completed the course have commented that it has been really helpful to speak to others in a similar situation.
