Prostate Scotland meets with Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia

Prostate Scotland was thrilled to have the opportunity to meet with Professor Jeff Dunn AO, CEO of Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and with Professor Suzanne Chambers AO while they visited Scotland last week from Australia.

We were delighted to meet with them again and share our latest developments on our work on prostate cancer and disease in our respective countries.  We were pleased to learn about the latest initiative from Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) on psychosocial care for men with prostate cancer, and discuss approaches to awareness, research, information and support for men with prostate cancer.  PCFA is a community organisation and the peak national body for prostate cancer in Australia. It is dedicated to reducing the impact of prostate cancer on Australian men, their partners and families, recognising the diversity of the Australian community. We very much value our contact and collaboration with Suzanne and Jeff and look forward to continuing this in the future. 

Professor Jeff Dunn is CEO of Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and a Professor of Social and Behavioural Science at the University of Southern Queensland.  Professor Suzanne Chambers is Dean of the Faculty of Health at the University of Technology, Sydney, and is a leading practitioner and researcher in psychological support for people with cancer for over 20 years, and in particular for men with prostate cancer.
