Treatment for prostate cancer has improved beyond recognition in recent years but, with this progress, the challenges and choices for patients have also increased. For some, do the risks of treatment outweigh the problems caused by the disease?
This article for Practice Nurse magazine is about as medical as I get. It looks at the choices facing patients and how practice nurses can help them make them. I am sure that if health professionals understood men with prostate cancer better, outcomes would be better and patient satisfaction higher. Practice Nurses are in a position to make a huge difference.
Practice Nurse is the leading peer-reviewed journal for nurses and prescribers in primary care.
