Active Surveillance 2021 – From Bench to Bedside

Our January 2022 speaker is Laurence Klotz, MD, Professor of Surgery and holder of the Sunnybrook Chair of Prostate Cancer Research at the University of Toronto. In a recorded video lecture series, Dr. Klotz discusses the history of active surveillance for prostate cancer as well as current guidance for its implementation. Our January meeting features the first two of three recorded videos Laurence Klotz, MD, presented for the Grand Rounds in Urology audience in February 2021. A Q&A session will follow.

We can still be reached through any one of the following options:

– Email us at info@pccnregina.ca

– Check a copy of our newsletter for the list of phone numbers for Board members

 

Board members are just a phone call away for those needing to speak to someone one-on-one who has firsthand experience navigating their prostate cancer diagnosis, treatment, and symptoms. We may be able to connect you to a member who has undergone specific therapies or treatments if you want to chat about side effects or the specific treatment process.

 

We understand that social distancing and self-isolation can be lonely, but remember: we are all in this together and you’re not alone. Cancer doesn’t stop for self-isolation or quarantine.

 

The safety of our members is crucial, and we will respect the decisions of our health leaders and make all adjustments as required.

Stay safe everyone.

 

Thank You

The Board of Directors,
Prostate Cancer Support Regina
