A six week course for men recovering from prostate cancer will be launched at Peace Hospice Care’s Starlight Centre in Watford later this year.

The course will offer a forum for men to meet with others in a similar situation and discuss common issues with a prostate cancer nurse specialist, Tina Smith.

It cover a series of topics including management of potential side effects of treatment, diet, exercise, body changes and intimacy.

Tina said: “I have supported over 50 men with prostate cancer in the past six months and this new course has been launched as a way to bring men with similar symptoms together to share experiences and find out relevant information to help them manage their lives.

“The aim of the course is to improve men’s health, independence and confidence, give them the support they need to get back in the driving seat and move on with their life.”

The course runs from 6.30pm for two hours each Wednesday beginning on April 15. For more information contact Tina Smith on 01442 869440 or email tina.smith@stfrancis.org.uk.
