SUPPORT GROUP MEETING

CONFERENCE: What’s next for Prostate Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment – A conference dedicated to the memory of Dr. Peter Lindberg

SPEAKER: MARK SCHOLZ, MD

TITLE: The Key to Prostate Cancer – Pathway to Personalized Care (a guide book).  TOPICS INCLUDE: Studies show that using partial information to make treatment choices leads to regret. Patients struggle to pinpoint correct knowledge due to a deluge of data. The Key Book confronts this problem using a self-administered quiz which directs the reader to targeted information that is stage-specific. Every stage of prostate cancer needs a different treatment approach.

For this book, 30 leading prostate cancer authorities were invited to contribute their special expertise in patient-friendly language. Dr. Scholz will discuss prostate cancer stages, demonstrate the quiz, and give away the guide (PCRI study version) to conference attendees.
