The PCFA Ambassador Program aims to raise community awareness of prostate cancer and to provide resources for individuals to learn more.

About the Ambassador Program

PCFA Ambassadors are trained volunteer speakers who present to workplaces, community groups, and organisations on the importance of prostate cancer awareness, and to provide resources for individuals to learn more. The Ambassador program is able to provide a speaker for your workplace, event, or group, in order to better educate them on the importance of this issue.

The Ambassador program operates in all States and Territories. We currently have approximately 100 Ambassador speakers available across the country, in metropolitan, regional, and remote areas. Many Ambassadors have first-hand experience of prostate cancer, are the partner or carer of someone who has, or simply have a passion for raising men’s health awareness in their communities. Before becoming an Ambassador, all speakers receive comprehensive training from PCFA.

 

Aims of the Ambassador Program

  • To raise awareness in men and their families of prostate cancer
  • To provide information on the importance of talking to your doctor about prostate cancer
  • To encourage men to engage with their general practitioners around health issues
  • To provide a suite of presentations to address the varying information needs of people in the community about prostate cancer
  • To deliver timely and evidence-based information about prostate cancer and related health issues

 

Presentation Options

There are three presentation topics to select from, each created to meet the varying needs of audiences. The three presentations available are:

  • Prostate Cancer: What You Need to Know
  • Prostate Cancer: Treatment Options
  • Prostate Cancer: What Partners and Carers Need to Know.

Presentations generally last 20 minutes, with Q & A time to follow, although this is flexible, dependant on your requirements.

PCFA is always glad to discuss how we can assist your organisation with a complimentary presentation, and we welcome your questions and enquiries. If you would like to learn more about hosting a speaker, please contact PCFA on 1800 00 22 98 or ambassadors@pcfa.org.au
