We are here to support you!

Prostate Health Steering Committee 2018
Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre has established a Steering Committee to provide direction on improving the process of diagnosing and treating men with prostate cancer. The Steering Committee has representation from all areas of the medical community including urologists, oncologists, pathology, research, finance, imaging, funding, as well as a Patient Family Advisor (PFA) recommended by PCCN-Thunder Bay. Bill Everitt was appointed as the PFA representing our group.
The Steering Committee held its second meeting in May and will meet again in the Fall. The voice of patients is important in the hospital’s commitment to patient centred care so a clear understanding of patient needs and experiences is important. If you as a prostate cancer patient or a family member have comments about the treatment or care that you have received and that you would like shared with the Steering Committee please share them with Bill (firstname.lastname@example.org) so they may be brought forward.
