The Pennsylvania Men’s Health & Prostate Cancer Conference is a half-day conference to present the latest evidence, research, and model programs that are proven effective or being studied to improve men’s health and prostate cancer early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship.
The goal of the conference is to engage providers, patients/survivors, and caregivers to reduce the burden of prostate cancer and bridge the gap between research and practice.
- State the proper screening guidelines and different screening tests for prostate cancer.
- Discuss prostate cancer risk factors with men over 50, assessing their individual risk for prostate cancer and determine the need for screening.
- Identify and understand the impact of various vitamins, supplements, oils, etc., on a man’s health and the possibility of increased risk for health problems.
- State and differentiate the various genetic factors related to prostate cancer and how it can be inherited.
- Order screening and diagnostic testing with greater efficiency, and less redundancy.
- Identify prostate cancer survivor patients that are at risk for additional health problems, and state the proper treatments and protocols.
