Life on ADT

Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT) is an effective treatment for prostate cancer, but has many side effects - many of which can impact relationships.

 

The ADT Educational Program is a free 1.5-hour session during which patients and loved ones will:

  • Learn about side effects of ADT

  • Learn how to manage side effects

  • Complete goal setting exercises to teach you how to manage ADT side effects

 

The program is designed for both patients and their partners or loved ones.
