PCFA Educational Webinar: The link between Exercise Physiology and Prostate Cancer

(Tuesday 27th July 2021)

Can exercise really help after a prostate cancer diagnosis? Research has found that exercise not only has physical benefits for men with prostate cancer and treatment-related symptoms, but it also helps to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Professor Daniel Galvão joined us for an educational webinar, providing an in-depth look at how the use of exercise physiology can aid with prostate cancer management from Androgen Deprivation Therapy side effects to managing fatigue.

As the Exercise Science and Director at the Exercise Medicine Research Institute, Edith Cowan University, Perth, Western Australia, Professor Galvão’s research programs focus on applications of exercise as medicine for the prevention and management of cancer treatment side effects and survival.

His research has received funding from NHMRC, Cancer Australia, and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, has been published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, European Urology, and Nature Reviews Urology. He has also co-authored the Exercise and Sports Science Australia position stand in exercise and cancer (2009) and the American College of Sports Medicine’s exercise guidelines for cancer survivors (2010).

During the webinar, Professor Galvão covers:

- Exercise timing and function at the onset of Androgen Deprivation Therapy

- Different modes of exercise during radiation that impact on fatigue

- Individual patient response to resistance-based exercise during Androgen Deprivation Therapy

- Weight loss (exercise/nutrition) program prior to prostatectomy

- Exercise and nutrition intervention in men treated with Androgen Deprivation Therapy

- Exercise dosage in men with prostate cancer

- Pre-clinical study on exercise during radiation therapy in prostate cancer

Last month the PCFA launched the STARGATE project. STARGATE aims to improve prostate cancer awareness by providing information on the burden of disease at a regional level, nationwide.

You can search by postcode or area name for factsheets of specific Australian regions and share these with your friends, family, and workmates to help improve community understanding and save lives.

The data includes diagnoses, deaths, and prostate cancer stage at diagnosis, unlocking information that has not previously been shared in this way with the community.
