ADT Educational Program: Upcoming Classes

Here is an update on upcoming online classes for the Androgen Deprivation Therapy Educational Program. The next three classes will be held on February 17th, March 15th, and April 15th, all at 3:00 PM, Pacific time/6:00 PM, Eastern time. 

The online ADT Educational Program is a free resource to help patients manage ADT side effects and engage in healthy lifestyle behaviours (e.g., physical activity). The program provides support to both prostate cancer patients and their partners or loved ones.  

  

Classes are offered monthly, and patients need to register ahead of time at www.LifeOnADT.com. The class is a one-time, live (90 min.), facilitated webinar. After attending, Canadian patients are mailed a free copy of the ADT book (linked below).  

https://www.amazon.com/Androgen-Deprivation-Therapy-Second-Essential/dp/0826183913 


The class plus the book—can significantly raise patients’ self-efficacy in managing ADT side effects. However, it is most effective if taken early, before patients are overwhelmed by those side effects. 


If you can, please inform the prostate cancer community about upcoming classes. Questions can be directed to Carly Sears, the Project Coordinator at LifeOnADT@gmail.com 

  

Please note, Dr. Lauren Walker will also reach out to you next week with information about an important new study on a novel approach for erectile difficulties.
