Island Prostate Centre
Island Prostate Centre has been thriving on Vancouver Island since the year 2000, working in collaboration with urologists, oncologists and family physicians by empowering patients with education and local support. We’re here to support Vancouver Island and Gulf Island men and their families at every step of their journey through diagnosis, decisions, treatment and recovery.
Island Prostate Centre provides clear, comprehensive and unbiased medical information through it's current programs and services, including:
- Nurse Counseling Program
- Prostate Support Association: monthly support group meeting, peer support, and hospital visits.
- Full library of books, DVD's, magazines and information pamphlets on prostate cancer.
- Annual Men's Health Day
All of these programs and services are completely free of charge and available to the community without a medical referral.
Island Prostate Centre does not receive any core government funding, relying on generous contributions and donations from individuals, businesses and foundations.
