“Best Practices” Medical Care

Survivor Support

The following resources are available to newly diagnosed men, survivors, and those coping with end of life challenges:

  • Navigate Cancer Foundation: This is an unbiased “3rd party” resource, whereby you gain access to an advanced practice oncology nurse who is not directly affiliated with any particular medical institution.  He or she can help walk you threw the complexities of your diagnosis, equipping you with the information you need to advocate for your own high quality individualized care.
  • Patient Advocate Foundation: This resource can help with navigating the financial complexities involved with paying for care.
  • Imerman Angels: Provides one-on-one peer support to cancer survivors.
  • ClinicalTrials.gov: Allows you to search for clinical trials available to prostate cancer patients in NC.  These studies contribute to the advancement of better patient care.

Research to Follow

“Best practices” is a constantly moving target.  Advances in medical oncology, radiation therapy, and surgical oncology evolve on a daily basis.  The Prostate Cancer Coalition of North Carolina (PCCNC) is committed to the dissemination of NC Process research findings as they evolve.
