Prostate Cancer & Active Surveillance: Quality of life following a diagnosis.

What is Active Surveillance, and is it a good treatment option for you?

Active Surveillance is increasingly being recommended as a management option for low-risk prostate cancer, in order to avoid unnecessary and invasive treatments when it is clinically safe to do so. Estimates suggest about 60% of low-risk prostate cancers in Australia are managed with Active Surveillance.

Professor Declan Murphy from the Peter McCallum Centre in Melbourne and Ian Henderson a PCFA Prostate Cancer Specialist Nurse from the Royal Hobart Hospital discusses Active Surveillance as a management option for men diagnosed with low-risk prostate cancer.

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
