The speaker is our advisor Dr Wellam Yu Ko RN, PhD, Cantonese/English presentation :

Wellam Yu Ko completed his PhD at UBC in 2018. His research used the masculinities framework to examine the connections between work, prostate cancer and radical prostatectomy. Wellam’s research findings provide a strong foundation from which he plans to investigate the effectiveness of potential interventions designed to help men manage career and employment-related priorities after prostate cancer diagnosis. As a Registered Nurse, Wellam is committed to raising awareness about male-specific health issues in the community and is involved in the Richmond Chinese Prostate Cancer Support Group’s activities to disseminate evidence-based knowledge and support men with prostate cancer.

四月至六月 粤語/英語講座,講者是我們的顧問 余威廉博士, 註册護士:余威廉博士於2018年獲取了温哥華英屬哥倫比亞大學(UBC)博士學位。他採用男子氣概的特徵作為檢視框架,致力於研究前列腺癌、前列腺癌根治術與工作之間的關繫。從計劃調查潛在干預性措施的有效性,以幫助男性在診斷出前列腺癌後,如何管理與職業和就業相關的優先事項,他的研究結果提供了堅實的基礎。余博士以註册護士身份,致力於提昇社區對男性健康認知有很大貢獻,並積極參與列治文華人前列腺癌支援網絡,將所知所學及其相關研究、實證結果與大眾分享。

Video by Prostate Cancer Canada (English presentation)
 with Chinese translation handout 中文繙譯大綱


The objective of this presentation is to educate patients, their partners and their loved ones to learn about radical prostatectomy as a treatment option for prostate cancer. We will discuss what the surgery entails and what to expect during the early recovery period. This will include consideration of possible complications of surgery and the need for sexual and bladder rehabilitation after surgery. Finally we will also discuss additional cancer therapies that may be offered after radical prostatectomy and how patients are followed to ensure they remain cancer free.
本演講的目的是教育患者,他們的伴侶和他們的親人,以了解根治性前列腺切除術作為前列腺癌的治療選擇。 我們將討論手術的內容以及在早期恢復期中的期望。 這將包括考慮可能的手術併發症以及術後是否需要進行性和膀胱康復。 最後,我們還將討論根治性前列腺切除術後可能提供的其他癌症治療方法,以及如何隨訪患者以確保他們保持無癌狀態。
