Face to face Solihull

Prostate Cancer UK are excited to be running our first education event for Clinical Nurse Specialists on Friday 02 March, in Birmingham at the Arden Hotel and Leisure club, Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull, B92 0EH

We will be bringing together CNSs to encourage networking and to share best practice. You will gain a better understanding of our work in prostate cancer care, how this might affect your clinical practice and how you can get involved in our work.

Sessions include:

Overview of our ‘Ten Years to Tame Prostate Cancer’ Strategy

Clinical Nurse Specialist Education
Do you want to contribute to educating your peers? Do you want to inspire the future generation of CNSs? Then this workshop is for you. We’ll be discussing the challenges in accessing professional development and we want to hear from you what education resources we should develop to support you in your professional development.

Getting Active on Surveillance
This session will explore a nurse-led active surveillance service. As active surveillance becomes a more widely adopted treatment option for men with low and intermediate-risk prostate cancer, we’ll aim to explore how nurse-led clinics can benefit these men and how patients can be managed within busy Urology departments.

CNS role and approaches to address Erectile Dysfunction as a result of prostate cancer treatment
This workshop will look at the why, when and how we can discuss sexual function with patients (and their partners) who are diagnosed with prostate cancer. This can be seen as a very difficult and sensitive area to talk about. Lorraine Grover will give her ‘top tips’ to help ease this discussion and asks you to share with her any thoughts or anxieties you may in doing so on the day during this interactive workshop.

Maximising Sexual Wellbeing: Supporting people living with Prostate Cancer
An opportunity to discuss some of the challenges nurses have in providing sexual wellbeing support for men. We are also going to share useful strategies to ensure all men (and partners if appropriate) receive adequate sexual wellbeing support throughout their cancer journey.

Good practice sharing
You will hear from Jill Ferguson, Prostate Cancer Survivorship Nurse Specialist, who will be sharing good practice from the Freeman Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne.

The event will run from 10am – 4pm and a free lunch and refreshments will be provided. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements. If you have any questions, please contact the education team on hpeducation@prostatecanceruk.org.
