IMPACT OF CANCER ON WORKING MEN AND THEIR FAMILIES: CAFE MED
I presented at a Cafe Med open session in the Suttie Centre, University of Aberdeen Medical School on Monday 24th February. The session, which was part of the University’s public engagement programme.
The session focused on Men & Cancer and was introduced by Professor Sam McClinton (Professor of Urology & Consultant Urological Surgeon). There were two speakers: Ms Justine Royle (Consultant Urological Surgeon) and myself (Honorary Professor of Psychosocial Oncology). Justine presented an overview of advances in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer. I spoke ~ not so briefly ~ about surviving prostate cancer and managing its effects of working life. About 50 people attended and there was a good question and answer session after the presentations.
Cafe Med sessions takes place on Mondays once a month in the Suttie Centre Cafe, Foresterhill Health Campus from 18.00 and are free to attend
