Prostate Cancer Supportive Care (PCSC) Program

The PCSC Program is a comprehensive survivorship program developed at the Vancouver Prostate Centre for prostate cancer patients, their partners, and family from the time of initial diagnosis to end-of-life care. Located at the Gordon & Leslie Diamond Health Care Centre at Vancouver General Hospital, the PCSC Program is a clinical, educational, research-based approach to care, addressing the challenges of decision-making and coping along the entire disease trajectory to serve both the patient and their partner's physical and psychological needs.

The Program has been made possible with funding from the Specialist Services Committee (SSC), a joint collaborative committee of the Doctors of BC and the BC Ministry of Health.

We thank the SSC, BC Ministry of Health, Prostate Cancer Foundation BC and philanthropic donors for their incredible support for the program to date.
