ABOUT THE 2017 PROSTATE CANCER CARE 360™ SUMMIT
We can all make in difference in advancing prostate cancer awareness. The Prostate Cancer Care 360™ Summit is named after our year-round Prostate Cancer Care 360™ Program that delivers resources focusing on the mental, spiritual and physical impacts of prostate cancer for women, the men in their lives and their families.
Attend this year's summit to gain invaluable information on prostate cancer research, treatment and care, health care disparities and social determinants of health from leaders in their respective fields to benefit the community.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
1. Discuss the role caregivers and family members play in improving patient care and health outcomes and detail ways to include them in shared decision making.
2. Describe the complex interactions between social determinants of health (socioeconomic status, education, the physical environment, employment, and social support networks, as well as access to health care) and their influences on the health of individuals and populations.
3. Summarize the latest prostate cancer treatment options and communicate the risks and benefits of each treatment in a way both patients and their caregivers and families can easily understand.
4. Identify and explain the potential mental, physical and spiritual impacts, of managing a prostate cancer diagnosis on men, caregivers, and their families.
5. Recognize preferences, values and expressed needs, especially within the African-American community and throughout varied races and cultures.
Learn together. Grow together. Change the world for the better, together.
