A Survivorship Action Partnership (ASAP)
Made possible by funds provided by Movember, Prostate Cancer Canada (PCC) is pleased to announce the establishment of ‘A Survivorship Action Partnership’ (ASAP) to help improve the lives of prostate cancer survivors and their partners, caregivers and family members across Canada. Programs funded will provide information and resources on a variety of topics, such as physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.
The Movember funding, a minimum of 10 million dollars over three years for ASAP, is the largest investment in prostate cancer survivorship programs in Canada to date. The multi-disciplinary collaborative network draws on healthcare professionals from both clinical and community settings.
PCC and Movember strongly believe that continued improvements in survivorship care depend on greater collaboration and connection of key stakeholders.
Working closely together to create strategies that have an impact on clinical practice, create supportive environments and strengthen links between community and clinical settings will lead to increased self-management and improve the quality of life of prostate cancer survivors.
Prostate Cancer Canada would like to recognize the Movember Foundation as a key funder of this initiative.
