Support Groups

 
About PCCN
 
Our network of local, independent support groups blend well with PCC’s national strategies, putting a local face in the media and with the general public.

PCCN affiliated groups are encouraged to ‘work local, think national’ because one voice on the national stage makes messaging more powerful and also gives increased visibility to local efforts and activities.

Group work includes monthly meetings, one-on-one hospital visits, newsletters, awareness sessions, parades, and presentations at health fairs and service clubs like Rotary, Gyro, and Lions. Our local groups enjoy excellent relationships with medical professionals in their community and these men and women give freely of their time and present timely talks to help educate and consult.
 
While prostate cancer is exclusively a male disease it sometimes has a profound impact on the family unit. Many groups recognize this and facilitate special meetings for women only. These small meetings allow women to share their feelings and concerns in a non-threatening, intimate manner.

Financial Burden Survey

The cost of managing prostate cancer in on the rise and can lead to substantial economic burden to patients, their circle of care and society as a whole. Literature is limited regarding out-of-pocket costs for prostate cancer patients in the context of the Canadian healthcare system as they go through various stages of the disease.

Given this; Prostate Cancer Canada, together with McGill University Health Center and Sanofi Canada are conducting a survey, “Estimation of Out-of-Pocket costs incurred by patients with prostate cancer”.  The questionnaire is designed to determine how much prostate cancer patients spend or have spent on treatments and services related to their cancer throughout the disease; to evaluate the economic burden of the disease; and to understand the role of private or public health insurance in covering these costs, and the impact of costs on overall quality of life.
