The Dry July Foundation was pleased to award Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) a grant in 2017 towards the Prostate Cancer Specialist Nursing (PCSN) program.
Prostate cancer is too frightening to face alone. Our expert nurses provide coordinated support throughout the entire prostate cancer journey; taking into account physical, emotional, psychological and social needs of men and their families.
Patients often tell PCFA that they need "an opportunity to talk through [their] diagnosis beyond what is available in a standard 15-minute consult with a urologist". Specialist nurses can help patients and their families to understand their diagnosis, what to expect and connect them with services to address the challenges that they may encounter along the way.
PCFA offers this extraordinary expert service free of charge, through support from a range of partners.
