From Cape York in the North to Kalbarri in the West, join us live on Wednesday, December 9 for a ComCon like no other.

This year we’re going virtual, bringing together men and their partners impacted by prostate cancer to share experiences and learn from national and international experts in prostate cancer survivorship.

With growing evidence of the important role exercise plays in prostate cancer survivorship, this year’s event will explore the benefits of physical activity in prostate cancer management. You’ll learn more about the power of a good pelvic floor program, prehabilitation and rehabilitation strategies, maintaining wellbeing, and harnessing new research to gain greater control over the side-effects of your disease.

 

No matter where you live and what you do, 

this year’s event is for you. 

 

You’ll have easy click access to world-leading scientists, game-changing specialists, and other men and women who understand what it’s like to live with prostate cancer.

Register now for a front-row seat to podium presentations, interactive sessions, and virtual networking.

Our online forum is for you to share experiences with others and does not contain specific medical, counselling or legal advice.  If you require professional advice specific to your individual circumstances we encourage you to see a medical professional, legal professional or counsellor.

No commercial or promotional activity. While members may share information about resources they have found helpful, the PCFA Online Community forum should not be used for the promotion of goods and services. This includes commercial entities passing themselves off as individuals and people who frequently post links to external health professionals or other services.

Be kind to each other - many people using the community are going through a difficult time. A few kind words can go a long way. Please welcome new posters – it can be very nerve-wracking to post on the forum for the first time.

If you or someone you know is suffering from mental health issues, such as depression or anxiety, we encourage you to seek assistance and contact Beyond Blue Tel:1300 224 636 or Lifeline Tel:13 11 14

Speak your mind freely, but please be sensitive to the feelings and experiences of others - you might not always agree, but you can agree to disagree in a peaceful manner.

Don't use offensive language -if a user is found to be using offensive language during their conversations the moderators reserve the right to edit the thread, without warning.

Don't use all capital letters in your posts - it's considered ‘shouting' online and it makes posts difficult to read.

Give each other the benefit of the doubt - please remember that it is all too easy for the tone and meaning of posts to be misinterpreted. Think carefully before replying to a discussion. it It is important to remember that things written rather than said can feel much stronger, so please bear this in mind when reading other people's messages.

Please respect the moderators - their job is to keep the forum safe and constructive so that everybody gets to have his or her fair say.

Stay on topic - try to focus on the original topic. In particular, don't change subject in the middle of an existing thread - just start a new thread.

Read what's already on the forum before posting - you may be repeating what others have already said or asked.

We want PCFA's Online Community to be a secure and helpful environment for all of the community. So please remember that by using PCFA's Online Community you are agreeing to follow our terms and conditions.
