About the Webcast
Our panel of leading health experts will provide an overview of the importance of exercise, diet and maintaining a healthy lifestyle in relation to prostate cancer. Key themes to be discussed include:
- What does a ‘healthy lifestyle’ mean in the context of localised or advanced prostate cancer? What should the goals be?
- How can positive changes in lifestyle be made in a way that is easy to adjust and maintain?
- How can exercise support treatment outcomes, reduce side effects, and improve quality of life?
- If issues with my health make it difficult to exercise, how can I experience the rewards of exercise during my treatment?
- Is there evidence to show specific diets can help to prevent or treat prostate cancer?
- How can diet help to manage the side-effects of prostate cancer treatment?
Registration is free and the webcast is open to all people affected by prostate cancer, including partners, family, and friends. The discussion will be guided by key themes from the latest research, and by moderated questions sent through during the live broadcast.
