If you are considering undergoing Androgen Deprivation Therapy or have committed to having it, then you will want to attend this online seminar created by Vancouver PSA Group member Dr. Richard Wassersug. ADT is an effective therapy, however it comes, like all cancer treatments, with side-effects that you need to be aware of. Earlier this year we published research data showing that the ADT Educational Program—i.e, the 90 min. class plus the book—can significantly raise patients’ self-efficacy in managing ADT side effects. However, it is most effective if taken early, before patients are overwhelmed by those effects.
The next three classes will be held on October 13th, November 12th, and December 15th, all at 3:00 PM, Pacific time/6:00 PM, Eastern time. You need only attend one.
The online ADT Educational Program is a free resource to help patients manage ADT side effects and engage in healthy lifestyle behaviours (e.g., physical activity). The program provides support to both prostate cancer patients and their partners or loved ones.
Patients can self-register at www.LifeOnADT.com. The class is a one-time, live, facilitated webinar (90 min.). After attending, Canadian patients are mailed a free copy of our ADT book (linked below). Attached is a PDF copy of the program poster. If you would like to receive hard-copies of the program postcards for distribution to patients, please feel free to let us know any time.
