ADT Program helps Prostate Cancer patients deal with the side-effects of androgen deprivation therapy (hormone therapy). Designed for those who are about to start or have just started ADT , family members will also benefit from participation.
The next two online seminars will be on April 14th, and May 12th, all at 3:00 pm Pacific time. (You need to enrol in only one.)
The ADT Online Educational Program is a free educational resource for prostate cancer patients in Canada who have recently started or are about to start hormone therapy. The program is as much for the partners of patients as it is for the patients themselves. Here is what patients need to know:
- Class structure: A single, 1.5-hour interactive, facilitated online class using the GoToMeeting platform. Canadian attendees receive a free copy of the book: Androgen Deprivation Therapy: An Essential Guide for Prostate Cancer Patients and Their Loved Ones, 2nd
- To register: Fill in the brief form on the home page at LifeOnADT.comor send an email to LifeOnADT@gmail.com
Research* shows that the program—i.e., the 1.5 hr class plus the book—can significantly increase patients’ self-efficacy in managing ADT side effects. But it is most helpful if taken early, before most ADT side effects emerge.
