Men’s Health in Prostate Cancer: A Clinical and Research Perspective

Description

Men’s health is recognized as being 30 years behind women’s health, and there is typically a five-year life span discrepancy between men and women in almost every country of the world. This has largely been attributed to men being less likely to seek help for health issues, stemming from traditional
values around strength and masculinity, with preventive health behaviors less commonly practiced. Gaps in knowledge include men suffering with issues of continence, the prostate, sexual health, and the pelvic floor that they may have been reluctant to investigate. With advances in screening, diagnostic, and rehabilitation tools for common disorders affecting men (such as prostate cancer), education to change culture and bridge gaps in the community is now paramount.

This men’s health webinar will introduce all of these topics and is suitable for members of the public and health professionals from a range of specializations, including nursing and urology. It will especially assist physical therapists keen to upskill and who may wish to work in men’s health with a focus on prostate cancer. Many topics, including pelvic floor muscle training for incontinence and erectile dysfunction, penile rehabilitation, and exercise therapies for men with cancer, will also be covered.
