In addition, the Vancouver Prostate Centre has the Prostate Centre Supportive Care Program; and patients may access the Oncology Social Work Services at the BCCA; both of which are highlighted below.

Prostate Cancer Supportive Care Program

The Prostate Cancer Supportive Care Program has a number of pages within the VPC website with further detailed information.

Oncology Social Work Services

The Prostate Centre recognizes that dealing with cancer causes distress and, at times, difficulty coping. Oncology social workers are available to help patients and their loved ones solve problems associated with cancer treatment. These services are available through the Patient & Family Counseling Services at the BC Cancer Agency. There is no additional cost to you, as the services are considered part of the medical treatment. Services may include supportive counseling, education, assistance with problem solving, and referrals to community agencies and support groups. The service can be contacted at the phone numbers given on their page at the BCCA website.

A World Class Centre

The Vancouver Prostate Centre (VPC) has a track record of success that has earned it a reputation as one of the world’s most respected cancer facilities. It is a National Centre of Excellence and a designated Centre of Excellence for Commercialization and Research.
