Patient Information

This section is designed as a resource for patients who are looking for trusted information on prostate diseases, and in particular developments in prostate cancer treatment and care.

The standard of care at the Vancouver Prostate Centre has been used as a model in Canada because of the unique and valuable linkage between research programs and treatment under one umbrella.

Much of the patient information on this site is also consolidated into a patient education booklet. Download the complete PDF version here: Information for Men Newly Diagnosed with Prostate Cancer.

Educational material on a variety of urological conditions affecting the bladder, kidneys and prostate can be downloaded from the Urology Care Foundation website.

The Vancouver Prostate Centre launched the Prostate Cancer Supportive Care (PCSC) Program in January 2013 with start-up funds from the Specialist Service Committee (SSC), a joint collaborative committee of the British Columbia Medical Association (BCMA) and the BC Ministry of Health. The PCSC Program is a comprehensive survivorship program for prostate cancer patients, their partners, and family. Click here to find out more about this program.
